Cheers for visiting my gallery, hope you enjoy. I'm the one on the right in the photo, pointing at some unseen wonder. I'm quite the rare beast when the old camera comes out so this is the best pic i have of me, although its a couple of years old now. I'm 25, & I've been an artist from before I can remember (I've seen the pictures!). My parents are very fantsy/sci/fi so I guess I've got them to blame for my affliction, but I'm not too angry at them... I've had no formal education in art, school included, its all self taught, & its the most valued aspect of my life, I don't know how I'd get through life without being creative! Fantsay is closest to my heart, classic fantasy, all the mythological beasties, but I occasionally slip over to sci/fi now and then. I've recently discovered the wonder of manga, as an artform it's mind-blowing, very striking & stylized for maximum impact, so I've begun to delve into its wonderous depths. & not regretted it. My aim? I guess it's to be some kind of concept artist, video games, movies, anything that allows me to be as creative as I want every day... :) Perfection incarnate. Until that far off day I'm happy creating for me & those around me, so I suppose that'll have to do for now...
