What is there to tell really. I stated posting my artwork online in 2001. My first character I came up with was Timitu so he has stayed my name over the years. (Timitu is not based on myself.) I went to college in 2005 for Tech Theater. In 2008 I got a job for a one year contract to work at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida for the "Cultural Representative Program." (If you ever wanted to work there but don't live in the USA, you should totally look it up. It is still my favourite job and life experience I have had.) In 2011 I decided to move back to Florida for a second round of college and got to work at Disney again and Universal Studios before returning back to Canada. Art is a hobby for me. I don't think I have wanted to be a professional artist since elementary school. I have had professional jobs in it but they tend to suck the creativity out of me. Not saying I will never take commissions or other jobs relating to art but I don't tend to. (I will do art trades from time to time.)
The rest is yet to come I guess.
Hey my friend, I just felt like awarding you some more badges for some of your comments on my art, since I collected lots of fragments in the past few weeks.
AHHHH! This totally made my day. Thank you so much for all of it. What a wonderful surprise. You have no idea how happy I was to see all the messages. I will have to check it all out later this week when I catch up on everything. Had an intensely busy past few days but after I am all done tomorrow I will have nothing but free time (I hope) for the rest of this week.
Hey! Just dropping a quick note to say that, I've been following your work for at least 10 years now (back on TLKFAA before finding you here!) and I am just so awed in how much your iconic style has improved over the years, whilst still being clearly identifiable. I'm so glad to see a lot of your characters have stood the test of time, because at this point some of them seem like old friends.
I remember following your Disney journey, reading your comics etc. as a teenager and I just wanted to leave you a note to let you know (in a non weird way, I hope) that I truly appreciate your artwork.
Keep it up and keep safe!
After a really crazy week I just had this was one of the best things to come back to. Thank you so much for this wonderful comment. It always makes me happy to see someone has watched me that long especially though the Disney time as I was not very active during it and changed many of my characters. Only to go back to my original ones after a couple of years. I really appreciate that you still like my stuff even after all these years. It means a lot to me.
