    Me neither as I don't live in the US. However the book looked pretty interesting so I got it from Amazon UK.

    It's a very cool book and if you've got any kind of art skills at all, stands on it's own with regard to delivering the techniques in a easy to understand, straightforward manner. When I found it I about dropped a brick as it's something I've been wanting to see in a book for a long time. I'd always guessed at the techniques and got within 80% of getting them right but the book did a great job of filling in the rest.

    In teaching the class I intend to fill in some minor gaps the book leaves and help folks who maybe don't have an art background get the basics required to do the techniques. Hoping some folks in the area see this or other internet bumps out there and will be interested. Getting down to the wire.

    It might be nice if you could post some of your tips here for those who can't attend the class - maybe after you have taught them. I have the art talent of a gnat but still bought the book as I like Doug Chiang's work and it looked interesting. (His Slave I on Kamino art is my background on the laptop and I had the pleasure of seeing the original at a SW exhibit in London in 2007).
