So, after managing to resist throwing down cash at my visit to Flatstock earlier this week, I went back. Was it worth it? Oh yeah. Below you can see my new pride and joy by Andrew Crawshaw of Broken Press. I also picked up a wonderful piece by Mark McCormick of Mad Pakyderms as a gift for my fiancé, but I can't post the picture because it's going to be a surprise present. -- Chelsea Ide
