Hi Mike!

I am very pleased to see that you accepted my request to check out the lounge and that you like my work! You have been a huge inspiration to me throughout the years for graphics and I loved your 2 week workshop back in Jan. 2002 in Manhattan Kansas......I hope that you will contribute a little to all of us here in the lounge!
