Print's in the wash, so it should be along in a few days to David Bebbington. I don't think I've received mine though.
Hey Matt! I got Nige's, I got Nige's!

Like I said privately, I am giddy with having these to admire, and ashamed by the hack print that represented my best effort, and depressed by how much room for improvement remains!
Amazing. Thank you so much Nige.
If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

Just to round out Niko's story, I received his print (I sent another to my allocated receipient) and in our correspondence about it, he mentioned he'd faired poorly in these exchanges, not having received prints before. I offered to send one but after shuffleing through several prints, decided to include a couple since they were just sitting in a box, as prints tend to do!
He does himself a diservice calling his print a 'hack'. It was pretty good as it was although I did offer a suggestion for experimentation. Sometimes advice like that doesn't match the makers vision, so it's appropiate to either ignore it, or try the suggestions and compare, then make up your mind. I do this regularly.
Also, as far as APUG goes, it's Seans baby, a few of us assist in specific activities like the Conference, the Postcard Exchange (me!), the Travelling Portfolio and the Print Exchanges. Sean bestowed us with apug email addys for the purpose and which lets us feel important
Nicola, I'm thrilled you enjoyed the prints.
I'm just bumping this to keep it alive and to remind folks to send their prints! Christmas is the extended deadline. After that, I name names....hehehehe...

Beware. He has names!. He started as A Art. He is Now B Art. Four more iterations and he will be making a stink. Does the jet stream blow from Canada to the US or is it the other way?

Now that I'm back in the country for at least a month straight, but not necessarily in Calgary, I might finally get mine in the mail!
I sent mine quite some time ago, and have recieved one as well.

Thanks and have a Happy New Year!
I received some lovely prints from argus (covers the blind and group exchange). Nice work! They'll be on the wall by the end of the weekend.
Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
