Ever since I was just a little pinky finger I've enjoyed drawing.
Many years have passed and I've spent hundreds and hundreds and HUNDREDS of hours practicing, studying and generally obsessing about art and skill building and now I'm a full-time, self-supporting, professional freelance illustrator.
I've lurked on DA for years and I've been posting for over 4 years now. I post in the DA forums when I want a break from my work. I try to provide factual or common sense advice that will help other DA members move in more productive directions, and I learn from other members and the staff.
I may not always write what people want to read, but hopefully what I write is useful to those who are willing to read it with an open mind!
