Hands On training is, of course, the best way to learn just about anything. There's only so far a manual can take you, and then you've got to simply plunge in, and make your own mistakes. HOWever, sometimes a little help ain't bad. <g>

That's where this little bunch of pages comes in. I've had a few folks ask me why I do this, aren't I afraid I'll lose all of my "trade secrets"? The techniques I use when creating my graphics are just that, techniques, something anyone can learn giving enough time and practice. I can share every one of them, and will have lost absolutely nothing. Hopefully the 'net will end up being a more attractive place to be.
