Personal update - turned out the back pain wasn't actually anything to do with putting my back out, it's a mild kidney infection which being honest with you, is scary. BUT on antibiotics now so hopefully it should be gone within a few days.
Anyway. Work has been slow but at least it's actually happening. Have decided to develop some of my photographs into Lino prints and work with some patterns. Going to cut some more out and try some other colours, will update soon.
