I’ve always loved artwork. I used to spend long hours on the internet just admiring other people’s art, and my margins in class would always be full of doodles.
I got heavily into Japanese animation and determined that the end all be all of artwork was to draw for a comic.
I wrote and illustrated my own webcomic for two years after high school. Around the end of the comic I had started getting really into the gaming scene, Magic: the Gathering, in particular. The artwork was very enchanting and breathtaking.
I shifted my goals from “comic artist” to “card artist” and began a number of projects related to card game illustration, as well as shifting to a more realistic style.
