    a second reading of your poem brings a good laugh..the surprise of that caricature second line…

      Thanks, Cynthia. I’ve had the image in my work folder for a long while. I liked the look of it straight away, but it was slow to speak to me!

    ever try edge effects/edge effects/edge effects? the edges change, sometimes thicker, different line weights – i like the thinness of these lines

      Indeed! The irfanview package I use has a ‘find edges’ effect and an ‘edge detection’ effect. They sound like they mean the same thing, but the results are very different. It’s interesting to play them against each other and throw the occasional ‘negative’ into the mix.
