Anyway, I must've got wings from his compliment and decided to join this collaboration without knowing what I'm letting myself into.
The first homework is to post one or more favourite posts that ever appeared on the blog. Gee, that's very tough call for someone who doesn't have years of experience not only in blogging but in art world all together.

I managed to learn one technique: Slip Knot Binding and gaining a new skill is priceless isn't it?
... and changes to previous details (typical for me: to critical for everything I do)... Looking the previous design I had feeling that something was missing but it takes a lot to find that "perfect" detail. I still think that this page is not quite finished yet and I'm continuing to think about what is it.
But one thing I can promise: the following two pages won't be changed any more.
