Cheapest site for photo or art mugs?

I have some artwork that I want to put on coffee mugs for friends. Though I see a few DIY sites, I am not sure what resin to use to hold up in microwave so would like your recommendations on commercial sites. I may eventually do bulk orders if I decide to sell so if you have any recommendations that would be different for bulk orders, I am game for those suggestions as well. Vistaprint was around $20-25 after all was said and done. Thanks, and enjoy your weekend.

Cheapest place to print digital to canvas in Denver area?

Technically I live in Parker, CO. Friends and others have started buying my digital art doodles that I print locally on glossy cardstock. I've seen some artists have digital canvas prints but not sure where to go for a reasonable rate as I want quality but don't have a lot of money. I'm not even sure how it is done but have the CMYK files at a good resolution and am ready to go. I would like to try a few and see if I can sell them. Thanks for your time. It is nice for people to like what I draw but I want to give the best quality as it is not yet a living but a hobby.

Helpful Books/Links for Drawing with Wacom?

I am a decent artist but very rusty, have intermediate Photoshop skills but draw quite well on my cheapie SB Pro app on my Kindle. (I even sold prints using just that.) Now, I have a new Wacom and besides the usual adjustment to using a wacom stylus, am finding that all three applications on my Mac have pros and cons (as a beginner with this wacom tablet), with the biggest con being the user myself. Can you recommend any books or links on doing drawings and paintings using the Wacom Bamboo (Splash) besides the applications' websites? Any brushes you favor or have downloaded and so forth? As an aside I note that pics I do in Art Rage at 300 dpi saved as psd don't open on my SB Pro application but this may be a future question.)

Mounting a poster on painted wood with high gloss finish

I want to mount a poster on painted black wood and then add a nice gloss. I currently have ModgePodge and Envirotech High Gloss Pour. The ModgePodge worked well on a ceramic tile and card stock for beer coasters I was designing but the gloss still had air bubbles despite the equal mixing and required stirring. I live in an apartment and cannot pour on a large area as the poster. Is there a work around...a brush on finish or spray that will be clear? I do want the gloss and not just a polyurethane spray (I do own that, though).

Free Online Photo Editor that works for high rez pics w/ nice Pixlr-like effects?

Are there any free photo editors that can work with higher resolution images (300dpi) and offer some of the effects that Pixlr-o-matic can? They seem to save to web resolution only.

Wanting to Learn How to Make Digital Art (poorly worded, I know)

I have good drawing skills (especially pen and ink) but am an amateur artist. I would like to get into working with digital art etc perhaps even to the point as a side job or making a living. The bumps are that I cannot afford to go back to school and am not super tech-savvy (yet). I have basic skills in Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator but that is it. Any ideas on where to go next? (I am so completely ignorant on the field taht I don't know what to call people who do this for a living.) Push come to shove, I could probably take a few classes a year, though after I save some money.

Learning how to draw/paint when I can't afford classes...

I'm looking for recommendations on the best way to sharpen very dull art skills. Anything in the realms of learning, whether they be books, how to discipline self to stick to learning the basics, positive self talk through frustration...you name it. I am not looking to be remotely professional. I like sketching and illustration as well as mixed media (ink/watercolor). Any positive advice appreciated.

Comic Books -- What New with Batman etc

Is there any site that will give me updates in comic book storylines for a long stretch of time (last 6 months +) since I barely can afford to buy one nowadays?

Free Decent Clip Art Sites?

I am looking for a good website for free clip art. I have googled but come up with rather lame clip art. I am putting together a one page memo and wanted some cartoonish things like aliens and comic book like designs. And I am using Word 2004 for the Mac.
