Hello! I now have a shiny new logo for Fair Warning!
There is a fantastic story doing the rounds this week: the parents of a disabled boy, Mats, thought that he had died isolated and lonely, but actually he had a thriving social life on World of Warcraft where he was known as Ibelin, a nobleman-turned-detective and philanderer.
It’s simultaneously heartbreaking and a wonderful tribute to the good that the internet can do, and I highly recommend setting time aside to read it.
Or, for something completely different… I am interested in what artworks people have on their walls (because I wanted inspiration for my flat, and I’m very nosey) so I tweeted asking to see, and it’s just a nice thread of people sharing artists and artwork that’s meaningful to them. Feel free to join in. :)
