New! - Links and FAQ

I've just updated the site with a Links page and a Frequently Asked Questions page. The Links page features links (imagine that!) to some of my artist friends, inspirational sites, publications, and more. The FAQ section might help answer some of the basic questions that I get all the time from friends and other artists about my process and my work in general. Feel free to drop a line on the Contact page if you have more specific questions. Thanks.
