For the last couple of months I’ve been performing an elaborate juggling act working as a full-time architectural assistant, studying at university, and dealing with a certain Australasian competition. Having almost balanced these metaphorical juggling balls, I can finally start paying some attention to this blog again. So, here are some compensatory cartoons that may …

I went back to university, and in the first week they made me cost forcast a housing proposal. This blog will be taking on a new use due to me recently being reacquainted with the world of university projects.
