I first started in digital art when I was introduced to Microsoft Paint. I was about 4 years old. It confused me, I didn’t see the potential. I accidentally cropped the canvas all the time when I thought I was going to just crop the photo, it was no fun.
Later I became fascinated by the many outrageously colorful and shapely fonts that could grace a Microsoft word document when you knew your stuff.
Eventually that lead to poster and logo design for my small business ventures, and I dabbled in garage sale marketing.
When I was a little older I learned the power of a collage app and a library of fonts. The meme opportunities were endless.
Somewhere in there my childhood friend introduced me to writing and illustrating my own short stories on pieces of folded paper with markers and crayons. That’s when I really started to realize that I had stories to tell, and to move the images from brain to paper was one of the biggest thrills of my life if I can say that without sounding too sentimental. I couldn’t stop smiling when I drew the characters from my head, it was just so fun to make them real.
It was many, many years later when I discovered that there was a website where you could buy and sell crazy ideas. It sounded too good to be true.
Did this mean that all the ridiculous character designs and “put that on a t-shirt” phrases that I’d accumulated in my head over my lifetime could finally serve a purpose?! It looks like it, yes!!
You could say I’m pretty happy to be here.
Let us enjoy the silly little ideas that live in our heads.
