Glad to be of service, guv'nor.

My friend Carl Rosati (see some more pictures here.) lifted my spirits tremendously the other day. He sent me a print in the post - a gorgeous new screen print in gold and black, soon to be framed - with a note explaining that he'd recently read my Computer Arts Projects tutorial on vectorising hand-drawn lines (Not only that, he's also written 'please dunt bend' on the packaging. What a gent.)

I was chuffed to discover that someone had actually taken the trouble to a) read it and b) act on it. Furthermore, the bloody thing had made sense. Wow.

A smug old man once said 'those that can't, teach. Those that can, do'. A more enlightened and less sanctimonious old fella recently said, 'those who can, do both'. I might not be hurtling up and down the corridors of universities as much as I used to be, but it's good to know I've still got some tutoring skillz.

Here's a download link to the original article:

And here's more of Carl's magnificent work. Don't you love the beards and the little eyes?
