"How long have you been doing this?" Is a common question I get when people see my work, and the answer is "All my life.". I've drawn ever since I was able to hold a pencil in my hands and do something other than chew on it. And while I've taken art classes throughout school, I'm mostly self-taught.
My artwork, as is obvious, is largely presented as comic-style illustration, although I can do many other things, such as portraiture. What I'd like to do with my work is fashion something of a well-rounded career in illustration, from children's books, to RPG manuals, and so on.
