  1. The tower blocks look stunning. Reminds me of Tetris.

  2. Love the snowflake and the rainbow pencil.

  3. Happy new year David, thanks for another great article and for sharing it with us.

  4. Happy new year to you, too, Graeme. Here’s to a great 2014.

  5. I love the rainbow pencil too. It reminds me of the Honda ad, where the hands make/craft a honda product instantly. It’s also good to see that Gifs are “still fashionable” :)
