As a diversion from this I have been working on some designs.

Building an argument (design in progress)
Also the grid ideas have been bubbling away on the back burner, and this pair popped into my mind. I think I'm reasonably pleased with this too.
But now I'd better put away my digital stylus and get sorting!
