Keep it Private?
The other day, I read an article over on the AIGA website, about this newfangled website called Dribbble. The basic premise of the website is this: designers, illustrators, creatives of all types, are able to post up stuff that they’re working on, or have done in the past, and others on the website can check it out, and give feedback.
