I’ve been into art and story telling ever since I could hold a permanent marker to a wall, a bit to my Mom’s dismay. I graduated onto pencil and started tracing things out of “how to draw” books. Now most would call that cheating, but it gave me the practice I needed to steady my hand – and come on, I was 5. I stopped tracing and started drawing things on my own shortly there after. I have kept up learning and improving on my skill ever since.
