Project Ethel (27.05.14 โ€“ 07.01.16): Pages 40-47

This is the last set of pages from Notebook Ethel. Now they’re all up I’ll have to update it’s homepage.

Tumblr Closedown

This is cross posted form my Tumblr:

This is officially my last post here,ย thisย was my first.

I will stop actively using Tumblr as of the 17th Dec 2018.

I object to Tumblrโ€™s years of benefiting and gaining trust from the artistic community to then go on and remove and destroy a decades worth of work, archives and culture with impunity.

I have decided not to completely delete my page here, most of what I have posted is not at risk from being removed by the algorithm, and, besides, I am still proud of the tens of thousands of posts I have collected.

Tumblr was the first place I felt truly at home on the internet and I have found many excellent friends and collaborators through it. I am currently working hard to make sure I am following all of you/them elsewhere, preferably with RSS, but with whatever form they find most suits them.

Life goes on and I have been maintaining a blog over on WordPress for many years, it has two parts, one that showcases my own work & history and another that is much more like the scrapbook style of blogging I have been pursuing here collecting and collating things I find.

Both parts of the blog are atย, you are very welcome to come and find me there and explore, I am active most days.

I am also very active onย Twitterย (@burningfp),ย Instagramย (@burningfp) andย Pinterestย (@burningfp).

Pages atย Facebookย (@burningfp),ย ย Elloย (@burningfp),ย Mastodonย (@paulgreer) update less frequently, but I am working on it.

I would like to thank everyone that has made using this site the magical, empowering and life changing experience it has been for me, and I wish all of you the very best for the future.

Kind regards,



A move at work and a change of routine means more commuting for me so more drawings on buses.
