    Well done mate, and great article in the Merc the other day as well – has been a good few weeks for you.

  • Thanks Rory. I just about fell off my chair when I saw the story. I had no idea it was going to be such a big article. I just wish all this publicity would translate into some sales : )

  • Hey mate, would you believe I got to work today and found an email from the Handmark Gallery in my inbox. A couple from Melbourne bought both my pieces in the Works on Paper show!
