"It's a GOD-given talent, but it's the demon's that drive you".
I was born on a cold December day in 1960. I started drawing at age two. I was never smart enough to stop.
I am an illustrator specializing in fantasy and horror art. Although I create art in a wide variety of styles, media, and genres, it depends on which personality is in control, I guess. I also do this with little or no adult supervision.
