I’ll start with some feedback on the new method of podcast recording (2 eps at a time) and how it impacts on feedback. As I understand it, by the time I could listen to and then comment on episode 19 (which was the episode out of the last 2 that had material really drawing comment), the next episode(s) were well and truely “in the can” and assuming another 2 episode recording, the first opportunity for podcaster response to feedback on ep19 would be ep22!

Perhaps most relevant to the task at hand are the silhouettes, which are outlines hand-cut from heavy white paper stock and glued to a colour background. Here are a couple of detail images (unfortunately the edges don’t appear sharp as a result of a digital pic of an offset print).
