My Work (continued)

A few weeks back, I gave a summary of what types of projects I was working on at the time.  Sort of my first description of what I do as a new freelancer, funding my life of travel on the road.  As usual, I had the expectation that I would provide work/project updates on a weekly basis.  Not.  But I’ll do it as often as I can, primarily for my own documentation purposes.  Maybe you’ll also find some of it entertaining.  At least you’ll know what I’m doing with my time when I’m not riding on ferries and discovering windy beaches.  And why I’m likely days overdue in responding to your email (sorry!).

Anyway, here are some new projects that I’ve been working on since my last update:
