I'm an amateur artist in the same way that your father is an amateur construction worker because he once built a small bird house. I enjoy art and drawing - both looking and appreciating and being a part of making it. All types of art attract me, but comics are what I enjoy creating the most. This medium I find unique, able to transit and transfer ideas both through text and pictures much better than any other. Although a complete amateur, I try to better myself through trial and error (read: stay late at night, stare into the screen, curse uncontrollably), observation (read: stay late at night, stare into the screen at other people's work, gasp uncontrollably) and discipline (read: ...nevermind, I hardly have any). So, that's about me. Hope you enjoy what you see.
