Inchies influence

So I’ve been hosting a Inchies swap for about a year now and these pages probably show that influence the most.I’m also getting interested in tactial surfaces as I currently am enjoying creating art by being an assistant to a group of visually impaired artists.We have lots of fun.The group stretch and stimulate me and this is showing in my work.
