I can't wait for this lockdown to end and the world to start getting back to normal again!

Here is a composite image I finished making after my live Q&A a few nights back, I was going to do a tutorial while processing this but was too tired to structure sentences, I promise I'll make some soon!

I'm really proud of how the NZ government has handled the COVID-19 pandemic, getting it early and not mucking around (although it does help being an island country)- I thought this old quote is quite fitting.

“Any fool can tell a crisis when it arrives. The real service to the state is to detect it in embryo.” - Isaac Asimov, Foundation

I used to read a lot of my late grandfather’s huge collection of sci-fi books he left my family, I must dig them out again to pass some time in lockdown. I love the way these books that were written 50+ years ago were often accurate at predicting the future and technology we now use and take for granted.
