hi dclug community,
this summer i'm teaching myself inkscape, the free vector drawing

if you're interested in participating in these gatherings (or just
sharing Inkscape tips and techniques online) you can join the
Inkscape Explorations email list i've set up at

interested in participating in the Inkscape Explorations community.
