I have set up a new email newsletter! I’m planning to send a new newsletter every 1-2 weeks. It will summarize current projects, recently posted information and tutorials, and inform of upcoming workshops, shows, and other events, allowing you, my valued readers, to stay informed on my current events without checking an RSS or other feed every day. To subscribe to my newsletter, fill out the form in the sidebar or visit my Newsletter page and fill out the form there. I use a double opt-in system, so you’ll need to confirm the subscription from your email.
