Hey Jon, I just found one of Collin's school work from Clapp's class. Check it out. It's one of his before and after piece. Also check out the rest of the gallery, it's pretty awesome. http://www.johnclapp.com/opinions/b_a_fix.htm
holy crap these are amazing. Colin improved 10fold! this seriously gives me motivation since i know where he was as a student and how much hes progressed.
Hmmm...I would actually say that we, probably more you at this point, might be slightly ahead of Colin in terms of ability when he was around the same time in college. Not that we are anywhere near his skill at the moment but it sure does make me very optimistic and also inspired.
