I've been drawing since I was little, it was only until high school that I realized this was something I halfway knew what I was doing. (Getting an A in art was way better than a C in math). I became a technical illustrator, then computer game artist. But luckily I've never lost sight of the value of 'real' art on paper and canvas, so I've tried to hold on to those traditional mediums like a tree in a windstorm. But I'm truly glad to be here on PIL among all these fantastic artists!
