It's a tad cliche to say I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon. So I will say that my real journey as an artist began when I was about 13. I started drawing cartoons with some semblance of a cohesive system. I also drew my first piece of artwork (based on Giger's Alien), that got people's attention.|
When I was about five years old, my father brought home our first computer. He introduced my brother and I to it. I started playing with it that very night. They haven't gotten me off the damn thing since.
Once I discovered Photoshop and Illustrator, the game was changed. I learned everything I could in school about them, then began to explore things on my own. I taught the two programs at a technical college in California for two years, where I think I learned more as a teacher than ten years as a student could have taught me.
The bottom line about me is that I am a ham. I love attention. Not super interested in becoming famous, but my eventual goal is to create artwork that appeals to audiences on a mass scale. By mass scale I'm thinking, for example, people with eyes. It's an impossible goal, but it'll keep me constantly striving to improve, and positive feedback will keep me motivated to keep moving forward.
