life has been tough these last few weeks - home front and work front. i'm applying for lots of new jobs and the like, and have been more than normally exhausted. work has been ticking over for the new common swings though, but i've not really got properly into the habit of this blogging lark. to kick start it, i'm posting the postcards which will come with the lower piphill issue. so far there are eight different designs, with five copies of each. i aim to make more before it's done too. also, the current centre piece of the issue - "the eyes of dr paraflax" - is slightly overtaking the rest of the issue and so i'm going to possibly issue it as a separate issue. in the meantime though, i'll post the draft here to make sure i keep posting SOMETHING here... anyway. enough of me - let the pictures commence!
