I'm 31, I live in Western Michigan alone with my cat, Penny Lane, a dilute calico. I'm finishing up a degree in Graphic Design. I find it suits me pretty well, I kinda wish I'd known this right out of high school, but honestly, who has ANYTHING figured out when they're 18?
I've loved to draw since I was a little boy. I definitely can thank my father for that skill-- he was an outstanding artist himself.
When it was about 14, I started to draw mostly females (funny how that coincided with puberty), and my brother introduced me introduced me to anime around that same time, and I really took to the visual style.
I outgrew my anime phase years ago, but I still retain a lot of the elements of it in my own style. I can't in fairness really call it anime anymore. More anime BASED. ^_^
