We have a regular sketchclub going on and we are going to probably get together this weekend either Sat or Sun afternoon. When I know for sure I'll post it up here and you are welcome to to swing by and grill our brains. All of us have worked professionally in one capacity or another and we might be able to answer some of your questions or point you in the right direction.
The same goes for any and all who are interested in comming out. Our Sketchclub is not exclusive and all are Welcome.
