While researching various tools for manipulating SVG's, primarily Inkscape, I came across a wonderful gem of a site that I just had to share.
Some of you have probably already heard of this site, but nevertheless, it is an awesome site to learn Inkscape.
The site is called http://screencasters.heathenx.org, and contains many video tutorials, called screencasts, which demonstrate various features of Inkscape. If you want to learn to make some really nice looking web art or graphics for brochures, etc, then you need Inkscape and this site will get you up and using it in no time.
Hats off to Heathenx!
