I have been drawing and making things since I can remember. First it was comic books, then it was printmaking, and now its everything in between. Communicating visually is what I love to do, whether it be in a digital illustration for a story or a poster layout for an upcoming show. Drawing is a part of me and I would be doing it no matter what (Cut to me stranded on a beach, all I really need is a piece of driftwood and the sand of the beach. I'm set: I'm sketching 6 layouts for my eventual "help me" message, to be seen from a plane overhead.)
I am currently reading "The Terror" by Dan Simmons. Its a long, frozen journey into well... terror. Yes, I also read books without pictures.
