    Permission to find out shit on your own...

    Hey CA gang...just wanted to say you're all free to figure out what works best for you in this big, crazy art world. The only thing I recommend is you figure out, again for yourself, who and what turns you on...then figure out why...figure out how they do it...where they came from...what they have in common...and how can you best follow in their footsteps.

    Carry on...

    Are there any tutorials on how to find out shit for yourself?
