ORN AND RAISED ON THE PLANET EARTH,I WAS A LATE BLOOMER TO ENTER THE FIELD OF ILLUSTRATION.  I HAD TAKEN UP ART IN HIGH SCHOOL,BUT NEVER HAD A INTEREST IN PURSUING ITAS A CAREER( I HATED PAINTING!).  AT THE AGE OF 26, I TOOK A DRIVE TO THE CITY. TRYING TO FIND A SPOT TO PARK,I SPOTTED A COMIC BOOK STORE. THOUGHT I'D CHECK IT OUT.  TO MY SURPRISE, THERE WERE MORE THAN THE EIGHT TITLES I HAD KNOWN OF SINCE I WAS A KID...IN FACT, THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF TITLES!  I BOUGHT A FEW AND STARTING DRAWING AND SUBMITTING SPOT ILLOS TO FANZINES.  ABOUT THREE YEARS LATER,I QUIT MY FACTORY JOB AND LOOKED FOR WORK AS AN ARTIST.  I WAS DOING COMIC BOOKS...BUT IT WAS TO MUCH WORK FOR SOMEONE WHO JUST STARTED TO GET BACK INTO DRAWING AFTER SUCH A LONG PERIOD OF TIME!
I GOT INTO ADVERTISING,BUT I DIDN'T DO MUCH DRAWING IN THAT FIELD.  I MET SOMEONE WHO DID AIRBRUSHING AND WORKED FOR HIM DOING FRISKET CUTTING AND PENCIL SKETCHES.  HE BOUGHT A COMPUTER AND STARTED DOING WORK IN THAT MEDIUM,GIVING UP THE AIRBRUSH.  I FIGURED MAYBE I SHOULD GET A COMPUTER AND SEE WHAT I COULD DO WITH IT.  IT WAS THE BEST THING I EVER DID!  IT OPENED  UP SO MANY DOORS.  I'VE BEEN DOING ANIMATION,COLOR ILLUSTRATION(REMEMBER,I HATED PAINTING!),E-CARDS,AND GAMES...
