I have always loved art, and will always appreciate the world of imagination that brings life to an artists soul. Unfortunately for me my brain thinks way to much and I am most of the time at its whim. A lot of my ideas come from being bored just sitting around the house either playing video games, watching anime and movies, to just drawing. The greatest thing about it is I get to create new things daily that come from imagination and share them with the world. H.M.
