I have always loved creating people and places, either in picture or written form. My favorite forum is fantasy, because the boundaries are limitless there. I am especially partial to elves. Maybe it's all that charisma they have. I wrote a fantasy book involving elves and humans, and hope to get it published someday, once I find an honest agent to represent me. Meantime, I've been illustrating parts of the story for no particular reason. I had to give up my career as a tattoo artist because of arthritis, but I found drawing is easier on the hands when using a mouse. When I'm not messing around in photoshop or editing (and re-editing) my book, I DM a group of adventurers every weekend in an elaborate game of AD&D.
