In my personal life, I'm often called "The guy in the chair." I'm always coming across new resources and I love to share these opportunities with people who may find them useful.
SO - This is a working master list of resources I'm beginning to archive to support and benefit the professional creative community. This may include classes, courses, and learning communities; useful apps & websites; giveaways, grants, loans; links to concepts, infographics, and videos; or other unique opportunities for artists, creatives, and small business entrepreneurs.
