Hi everybody, and thanks to those of you who are staying up super late for this (if any). We tried to find a time that would work reasonably well for as many of you as possible, but as always some folks get the short end of the stick.
Before digging into all of these excellent questions, I wanted to quickly let you all know how much I appreciate all of your interest in, and support for me and my work. I got into this business because the work itself brings me a lot of personal pleasure, so the fact that the finished products are being enjoyed by so many folks all around the world is more than I ever hoped for when I started.
Now, some responses (and if you want more details, definitely feel free to pester me during the rest of the q/a)—I'll start by answering the first questions that came in on Wednesday, in order (apologies in advance for my lack of forum posting...I expect many double posts, and other noob errors).
