that's really impressive - how long did it take?

and know what you mean about new interesting stuff late at night


I can't remember when I started, but it was probably about half past nine, and I didn't finish until nearly 1am. On the other hand, I'd never really used Inkscape before, and it needed a bit of fiddling to get working properly on the Mac, so that includes a lot of tinkering and learning and looking things up in the manual/on the web, etc, rather than just actually drawing.

If I had to do it again, probably a couple of hours, now I know roughly what I'm doing... I think it's a useful skill to have, so I may be practising a bit more; I'm sure I'll blog the results if I do :)

OK I will look for one!!!
