For as long as I can remember I've been drawing. My earliest memories of drawing stem from reruns of the Adam West Batman TV series. I was heavily influenced by comic books and super heroes growing up. I gravitated towards the artists more than the stories at first. Idols of mine were people like Neal Adams, Michael Golden, Nick Cardy, Gil Kane, Joe Jusko...As I grew older I discovered fantasy greats Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta. When I was a little guy I saw Star Wars--there was literally nothing like it. All of these things mashed together and helped to influence my artistic visions. Academics were sort of secondary unless art was involved. Thankfully, I had parents who pushed my artistic side, and I attended various private schools for art.

I've been on a quest to find that style that truly suits me. I don't know if it will ever happen, and I kind of really enjoy that in a way, because it doesn't tie me down. Also, it allows me to explore lessons that I might otherwise pass up. I'm enjoying this unending study of composition--learning the basic rules just to break them.
