best experience of this site will be in a low light environment  BECAUSE
the colours will be richer & the texts will be clear.  (video will also be most
grand) if stuck in bright light; zoom in for text.

always remember to SCROLL DOWN & up too!.  the hand will
indicate a link (as is usual) and wooosh you somewhere,
the arrow will NOT .   

this site will be most full on a desktop of some sort,  mobile will give
you something but perhaps not very much.      sorry about that.
(i will improve mobile experience as time goes on)   meanwhile
find a desktop!    

zoom in to enlarge images.    > they will get quite large before breaking up i hope.
perhaps be a little soft also.  but so you will get an idea. an idea will be got

completions and additions in the pipeline…    & of course we will load various
archives &  current work that is released from the studio as we go along.

anyway we begin here, adjust and build more as the thing moves on.  we intend to
consider this site a 
continuous project, so check in for the changes every now and
again….meanwhile enjoy
