NOOOOOO! Shame to hear that you're leaving Maya behind. I haven't touched it for several months either. I haven't really had much time for it, around moving interstate and at the moment highschool is a little bit of a strain.
One thing you taught me is the value of placing advertisements for threads in your signature. It was that that pulled me into the first ever SM tournament that M ran (hmmm, as I recall you forfeited to George).
But anyway, good luck with your move back to graphic design. You do have a pretty sharp creative eye and I hope all goes well in the future for you.
