I've been illustrating since I was old enough to hold a crayon. Back in the early 90's I was painting and airbrushing vehicles until I started taking classes at IVY tech in Freehand, Illustrator, Quark, and Photoshop. The computer was a natural extention of my skills WITH UNDO! It has taken decades for the tech to catch up to me, and it is finally here. This year I bought a cintiq monitor which allows me to draw right on the screen. Every moment with it has been a dream. From Photoshop to vector illustrations, the cintiq has cut my work time in half! No longer do I sketch/scan/print/change/scan over and over. It's all done digitally.
