Berlin… go. to. Berlin. I absolutely loved that place. Cheap, and very cool people – everything Paris wasn’t.
Yeah, good, just send in your collage whenever you’re ready. I have artwork for 1.1 and might also for 1.2, but haven’t been talking to anyone about .3, the deadline for which will probably be Sep 2006 — so you got loads of time.
Good luck with your job. Excellent.
