Regretfully I find I no longer have the time to maintain the mix of pornified pop culture picks that is Latest Picks and Blog. The last few years have been somewhat turbulent personally and I have found outlining and maintaining updates to stories has took me down a path that seemingly daily takes me further, and further from the purpose of those news and gossip stories—being topical background for illustration and caricature.
Therefore, both the mini-blog that is Latest Picks and the full Blog shall be sidelined with no further updates to past stories made, and within a month or so become an archived part of the site—although remaining available indefinitely so as to prevent any link rot for those those that have indeed kindly linked.
Sadly, this will also mean there will be no Best of Picks on New Year’s Eve, a shame because I have always thoroughly enjoyed looking back through picks to sum up the year, with the picking of proving an enjoyable seasonal talking point with those with whom I am in touch.
In future Gallery image pages shall them self contain any topical story from which it is inspired rather than as has been until now a link leading to the writeup of such in Picks. Hopefully that will assist getting my illustrative priorities straight and I hope those that have kindly sent stories will continue to do so as, for sure, it is the amount of time available that has diminished rather than my interest.
