I've been looking at ways to preserve my 18 months of blogging. I wonder when or if I stop writing, will all my efforts, images and thoughts be lost in cyberspace as I forget passwords and programs? So I want to keep these thoughts in a more permanent place.

In Blurb, I have the option of creating a book which is quite permanent and I rather like the idea of doing so. I did a mock up of the blog to date and it came out as 442 pages and 681 images. That's a hefty book and no doubt may cost a few pennies to produce. However, now that I have the blog downloaded I may create my own version if for no other reason than to have a hard copy of it at least on cd or on my hard drive.

I'm calling the baby vulture finished. The black colorfix paper and derwents seem to make a good marriage with not too much loss of colour on the black, as there is in some paper types. I love the texture of the colorfix paper and may order more. As usual, the final image does not do justice to the piece in real life, where it has much more clarity and colour depth.

It is so cute. Too bad they aren't in real life. I put more photos on my blog.

Thanks Jeanne, I've never seen a baby vulture in real life. I know they are strange looking creatures, so strange they are cute.

I'll check out the blog, your photos are great.
