On a sunny January morning, Art Center handed me a BFA in Illustration. The following August I moved to NYC to start a career as an advertising copywriter. It was a good career. I made good money, met many interesting people, traveled the world and found myself in situations that I never would have been in otherwise.
How I came back to art is a bit of a shaggy dog story - too much to get into here - but it's what I've always wanted to do with my life. Now I'm making good on what I said to myself when I picked up a comic book in the 6th grade, "I want to be able to draw like that!"
