List of resources

Hey folks,

Dave Chow here with a list of stuff that I used to put up in the Portfolio class. I'll assume that since graduation you might not be able to access Blackboard anymore so I might as well transfer some of those useful links over her to you guys. If there's something I'm missing or you folks need (like the "What's your Pimp Name?"), let me know and I'll post it here.

•Video game developers website:

•Dirt cheap lodging for trips:

•Great bags & backpacks:

•Illustration magazine:

•Oddball geek items:

•Packaging, boxes, shipping materials, etc.:

•Cool envelopes:

•Funky cool art book sites:

•Communication Arts magazine:

•Short term health insurance for grads:
•or if you're travelling abroad:

•The absolute best independent bookstore in the area, Book Beat:

•Cool picture frames at dirt cheap prices:

•Self publishing sites:

•Art competitions:

Business cards, postcards etc...

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to pass along some info I came across. I know a printer who has some good prices. For example a 1,000 count of business cards with a full color glossy front and just text on the back runs approx. $105 perhaps a little less. She accepts images through email and will run you a proof for final approval.

Here's her info:
Debbie Van Nieulande
cell (248) 342-9081
office (248 )634-5309

PO box 174
Davisburg, MI 48350

She does live and work out of Davisburg, but she is usually down in the Auburn Hill/Rochester Hills area at least once a week. For example, she drops off my business cards in the side chapel of the local church where I've done some stained glass and I just pick them up from there. She's willing to work with you.

website addresses

Hey, Amy here.

I'm planning on eventually adding a links page to my site, and I know lots of you have links pages too. If everyone could leave a comment with their domain name, it would help us network with each other a little better.
