A huge thank you to Lee for putting this large body of content together and sharing it with this community. All three volumes are gold. It was a relief to me to that there was finally an answer to that age-old question of "What now?" after graduating from art school. This is one of the best if not the best primer for anyone wanting to pursue this endeavor professionally.
