R.I.P. Nina Way (Jessie)

A long time friend and B3ta.com user Nina Way aka Jessie died yesterday in a car crash (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/derbyshire/8686452.stm) to say i’m gutted is an understatement.  My heart goes out to her family and other half :(  She had often asked to meet up at b3ta bashes but i’d never actually managed to make it to any (combination of me being broke and a social recluse) she also had one of my pictures printed and wanted it signed :(   I wish i had met her if only just once, She will be missed. 

Update : just been show this http://www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk/news/Police-A52-crash-victim/article-2171991-detail/article.html :(

A e-mail from the editor…

I’m currently writing a article about Filters for a Photoshop magazine and sent the editor an example of the artwork I was making for it, she sent me an e-mail back saying…

“…I think it's excellent and certainly not something I thought would be possible with the filter…”

so colour me chuffed :D  Hope to get it finished in the next couple of days, 3/4’s of the article is now complete.
