The show has left town Upper Case


Each letter has a different texture; there's more to it than just blue, folks!

The kit is growing, slowly, but surely. The paper used for the preview is part of it.

As Britain is drowning in a sea of snow, I am getting up late, getting a helluva lot of late shifts under my belt and not much sleep at all. But did a wise man not say (sing) "I'll sleep when I am dead"?

Tell you what, I miss going to gigs, shouting out lyrics that lurched about in my head for years, paying loads of £££ for warm, stale pints served in plastic jugs, competing with everybody about who sports the most authentic whiff of patchouli and just, as Germans say, let God be a good man. I miss NOT buying merchandise on the premises and then hope for the flying Dutchmen to still be around, two for a tenner, XL fits all.

Not saying I ever attended a friggin Bon Jovi- gig, no, Ma'am. But I rode along the white cliffs with The Who, rang Hells' Bells with AC/DC, got poisoned by Alice Cooper, attended the Monster Party with Die Aerzte, cried for Dana O'Hara with Sonata Arctica, walked in the air with Nightwish, bathed within the light with Scar Symmetry, burned churches with Amon Amarth, found the Temple of Love with the Sisters of Mercy and abandoned ship with Subway to Sally. Just as supporting Glasgow Celtic took me all over Europe, music made me go places, meet people, experience stuff.

Folks, if you read through this rant up until this point, please try and remember one thing- you can bury your true self only for so long. It will rear its head occasionally, triggered by a song, a flick, a smell, a distant memory, a book, a dream. It never goes away, it only rests, just to come back with full force.

I have decided to embrace it. Which obviously means bothering you with lenghty speeches about nothing at all, but hey, deal with it, that's me!

What was I on about... oh yeah, the alpha. Each letter is different, no special characters (as they are included in the lower case) and the kit is making some progress.

Gimme some feedback, folks, I thrive on it. Criticism is more than welcome, otherwise I will never know if/ where/ why I'm going wrong.

Such a pretty alpha! Congratulations on your wonderful work!! It is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see the rest of the kit - the papers you've shown us in the alphas look lovely!
We're in the middle of a heatwave here (in Aust) so I envy you your snow a bit although from the news reports here it does look pretty extreme! Thank you for your beautiful work!!
