On my path to become a professional illustrator, I got into print design then web design and followed that path to a career in website and application design. Now, illustration is primarily a hobby of mine.
The word "amateur" comes from the Latin word "amore", which means love. I love drawing and have no problem calling myself an amateur illustrator.
Current Residence: just outside of Washington DC, the Ninth Circle of Hell
Favourite genre of music: I dig almost any song where it sounds like the musicians actually give a crap.
