About

As long as I can remember, I have always been a fan of comic books. When I was little I would satisfy that void with the Marvel cartoons of the mid-90’s and would read various comic books as I could get my hands on them. For a large portion of my life, starting in my teen years, my fascination with the art form dwindled to a passing fancy. When I entered college, my love for comics and the heroes within them grew once more. Since graduating college I have been refining my technique and working on applications to comic book publishers so one day I might be able to become a comic book artist.
