My name is Joshua Swanagon and I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. It was my love for art that gave me a lifelong drive to find a way to be more than just a starving artist but to make my art lucrative while still being enjoyable. Over the years I have gone through everything from t-shirt and sign design all the way to Web Design and Development. Which is where I find myself now, I am an Interactive/Web Developer for a global marketing firm. However, I cannot seem to make it through an entire day without thinking about illustration, cartooning and a love for all things art. It is for this reason that I spend my nights drawing, I can’t help myself. My deep desire is to get into illustration for children’s books and the occasional graphic novel, and it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see my comic strip ArDuffle (http://www.arduffle.com) become a success either.
