I’ve been drawing since I was 18 months. I wanted to be a cartoonist when I grew up. I moved to Atlanta, GA in 1994, and drawing kind of fell to the back burner as my aspirations changed. I was born in 1985 in Madison, WI. I’m a 80s baby-country boy. Hip-hop had a major influence on my adolescence. I wanted to rap. I had some indie deals on the table, but they never went anywhere. Did college for a couple of years, because that was what was expected of me, but institutional secondary schooling really wasn’t a need for my career plans or life goals. Not to mention the fact that it didn’t guarantee an income after completion, and I had a child, presently. It was only after 14 years of running half-ass in the “rat race”, that I decided to take my art more seriously as a profession.
