It was love which inspired the beginnings of my Yule card series. Not love of Jesus, but love of Ann, the first three were specifically for her, although the very first was a lino print which I did for everyone. My brother drove me all over Glasgow on Christmas Eve so that I could personally deliver them.
When I was forced to go to the 'Job Centre' in Exeter after I had been sacked for listening to kids, I used the time, and their computers, to make a book with the story behind each Yule card. The employees were so massively disinterested that they never once queried me if what I was doing had any relevance to finding a job.
