My name is Lorenz Angelo Arriola, but many know me as FireballDragon on the internet. I am a huge fan of cartoons and animation, and video games pique my interest, as long as they aren't boring. Ace Attorney, Professor Layton, and Sam & Max are some of my favorites.
Anyway, I've been here for a while now, but I've never really been noticed. This is detrimental to my goal of becoming a professional cartoonist, but c'est la vie.
Yes, I wish to become a professional cartoonist. Not Chuck Jones level or Eiichiro Oda level (No matter how much I've been influenced by Oda), but I'd at least like to rub elbows with C.H. Greenblatt or Bryan Lee O'Malley.
I know the path will be long and difficult, but I'm willing to do whatever it takes to see my ideas on TV.
Well, I believe I've said enough, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy my cartoons!
