My first passion in life was drawing.
Before graduating high school, I recieved the most expensive birthday present I'd asked for at that point: a Wacom Inutos 3 drawing tablet. And I went to work painting in Photoshop people, places, and things. Painting had not only taught me how to be a better artist, but a better designer. Composition, color theory, point of interest, perspective, and contrast has all helped shape me into the designer I am today.
