Welcome to my realm of confusion (yay i have my own realm) i'm 22 and from Michigan. I've always loved art, but didn't start doing art seriouly until about 6th grade, when i started to study how to draw the human form (using myself as a reference model). Since then my work has(I think) improved greatly especially since I took four years of art in high school and now have art classes in college. I'm a graphic design/imaging major and I hope to go into some sort of illustration. I think ink is my favorite medium, but I have worked with everything from charcoal to watercolors- the only thing I have really never tried is oils...they scare me... Some of my influences are Edward Gorey, Aubrey Beardsley,and Eyvind Earle. Also, I do appreciate critical comments, so if you see something you'd like to critique- go for it...
