I’ve always considered myself– even defined myself– as an artist, but interestingly enough, I only recently became serious about making a living at it. With very little formal training in fine art, I’ve had to figure it out on my own, for the most part by trial and error.

I feel as though I’m merely acting as their generator to ensure their fruition.
