The time has come to close up shop for this year.
It´s time for the last tutorial of 2010, and what better way to close up with a Spatial Sketch tutorial by SAG.
Can´t wait for next year, big things awaiting. I even got a surprise or two in store for you! ;-)
So i wish you all a Happy New Year, see you on the other side!
