There are no words for my relief and joy tonight! I have finished my book. For the last 6 weeks I have worked till 2am (on average ) to get it done and used every moment I reasonably could. I feel like I did 4 months work in one. It’s been crazy. And in the last 3 days its been a completely weird roller coaster… My legs were burned by coffee but I worked on to finish off the last details of a batch of 12 images at 3am, then the next morning I completely rewrote the text in a moment of inspiration and finally (OMG) got the perfect words (felt like a lightening bolt), then I did my back, and now, suddenly I am finished. It’s surreal! I’m so tired I can’t tell you. But so elated. It’s been a marathon. And the heat we’ve suffered thorough hasn’t helped! I’m a little sore and broken, but I did it and I LIKE it. It might be the best work I’ve ever done. No, I think I can say it is. Halle-frikken-looyah!

This is the final picture. The whole book is big and surreal and detailed and intricate and full on. It’s why I have been AWOL from, well, the world for a bit. Hello world, I’m coming back now! After a sleep. Please excuse me if I missed an email – remind me! Or didn’t return a call – sorry! I’ve been in a twilight zone of industry.

Now off to bed :-) Soooo early!
