Background story:

"I've always loved to draw. It runs in my family a little bit. After being a missionary in Argentina for a couple of years after high school, I went to college
in Idaho. I studied illustration and I now work as an illustrator and comic book maker."

Future dream:
"I would love to feel comfortable with my illustration income, so I can focus on comics. I really want to get my first real graphic novel done."

Favorite artist:

"At this exact moment, it's Geof Darrow. I saw him in Chicago and his inks on vellum were AMAZING!"


"To get your own style just draw and draw and keep drawing, it will come. To make money illustrating meet people that can hire you and network with anyone."
