Hello,  my name is Chris Herdman.  Since around middle school, I have had an interest in sci/fi and/or fantasy role playing games such as AD&D, Marvel Super Heroes, and Star Frontiers.  I began drawing (very) crude comic book strips with my friends around that same time.  As I started to improve, I decided that I wanted to draw comic books for a living.  Immediately after high school, I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with that goal in mind.  Years later that particular goal started to fade, but not my desire to continue my D&D hobby and art.
