Here's my design for this year's Christmas card, though I won't be it getting made up as a printed item this time.
Last year I did my 12 pubs of Christmas and, because I got them printed, I think people didn't realise that I'd made them myself, as in past years I had been more active with the glitter or the sewing machine.
This year each letter here is from a brand name on a ghost sign in London.
Let me know if you recognise any of them.
Joy to the World and all that!

Here we go again, the Christmas party season is upon us and the streets will be littered with vile drunken bodies and pavement pizzas. Then again, perhaps I might get some good shots of the latter for my Flickr set Textures and Patterns or be able to do an alternative set of these.
Anyway, what I want to say is, please make sure you get home safely. If you can't get a tube, bus, train or official black cab don't be tempted to get into an illegal minicab solicited by someone on the street or accept a lift from a kerb crawler. Only ever get in a mini cab if you or your company ordered it beforehand from a recognised company.
To emphasise my point TFL have released this rather unnerving video (for the over-15s only):
