Anyway, about myself (and feel free to skip this if you just don't care), I spent the better part of my high school life studying for a job in the film industry. After I graduated the studying continued. I enrolled in College to try to get the education I needed to be a film director. after about two or three years I became discouraged. I dropped out and began working for my father co-designing his companies WebPages. late in December that same year I was struck with inspiration and enrolled in an Art College to work towards a career in the comic book industry. you see for years I was a big fan of some of the Manga titles imported from Japan, but had little interest in the stuff we had over here. I felt that the Japanese comic book industry was better because there the comic book industry was seen as a serious artistic field, whereas here, you're likely to get ridiculed for it. after a while I realized that the comic book industry here could be taken just as serious with a few tweaks. By this time I had gotten some responses to some of my fan-fiction and I realized that much of what might bring respect to the industry lay right under my nose with my years as a film student. I am now working on such works as a Comedy/ Drama that will (hopefully) stand alone as a series that does NOT rely on science fiction or excessive action.

More of My artwork, mostly of preexisting characters. just like the rest of my artwork on this page it's been done on Microsoft's paintbrush program, which is, quite frankly, like trying to paint a house with a toothbrush. Hopefully one day I'll Be able to use a program like Illustrator with enough skill that I can illustrate with that program instead. but for now, this is the only illustration program I know how use.
