    Dear Tom, dear Tony Listening to your podcasts becomes one of my dailys. I listen to them again and again. I’m a 35 year ‘old’ Graphic Designer, starting right away at the bottom. With nothing else than 1 or 2 hours every day (early before family becomes a topic), a (since childhood dream) and now self-commitment about becoming an animator. Just with a pencil, a lot of paper and some great tutorials from experienced mentors like you guys. That’s what I wanted to thank you for … really … WOW! … for makin expert-level stuff available for me. And don’t forget: Keep TEACHING from the heart 😉
