Am in the studio recovering from yesterday's successful (I think) but exhausting presentation to the BBC.

There's even some argument to be had about the use of resources in this building on the other side of the world, but whee! It's astounding!

The Seed Cathedral

Here's a few more gloomy but ultimately silly doodles:
