Way back in the wee years of my life, I copied Super Mario from a storybook of my favourite hero. After being wrongfully scoulded for tracing the picture, it became apparent I shouldn't share my drawings. For years, I idly amused myself with comic books that I'd doodle for my eyes only.
Flash forward to today; I am still uncomfortable with showing people my drawings; but trying to get over this flaw.
Under my belt now: co-creating Holmes vs. Moriarty
Character concept artist for an unsuccessful Kickstarter game (Buck & Miles)
and a handful of oddjob design tasks.
Next up: a new comicbook (or possibly webcomic), a graphic novel, and an oldschool jRPG.
