    Brilliant, Davinder & Tim. I noticed Tickyboom’s CIBDWBB videos, found it on Facebook. I then watched and instantly realized why Youtube has a slow down setting for newbs like me lol.

    I found it extremely refreshing to take onboard as Tims workflow is brilliant to watch. I find my own style leaning in a similar way when I am working/studying this subject in general. Add a brilliant attitude to ‘creating’ and personally I gain so much from this.

    Tims whole process comes across as a fun thing to be doing and as we know a lot of us can find this very calming and motivating when we face such challenges.

    Looking forward to more 🙂
