Resources

If you have something you want us to add to this list, please send an email to abe@tix-n-roo.com with the subject line “RESOURCES: [category]”
If you don’t see a category that you would like added, you can do the same, just make the subject “Add category” and make sure to include some links for us so that we’re not opening a new category with nothing in it. We’d like to make Categories for Scupture, Animation, Photography, Game Design, and 3d Modelling, among other things, but those aren’t things that Tix and I do, really, so any help building those resources is much appreciated!
You can also get a hold of us on Twitter @TixnRoo or on tumblr at tix-n-roo.tumblr.com, and give suggestions there.

As the categories get bigger, we’ll start splitting them up into their own pages.
