Over the years, many strangers I’ve never met have given me gifts of learning and inspiration by sharing their work on blogs and message boards. Some of their sites were as modest as this and infrequently updated, but were still able to offer me great insight into the processes associated with their creations.

For some people I’m sure those gaps are much larger, so here is where I’ll put what little I have to offer.
