After two decades of drifting through the back offices of Corporate America as auditor, business analyst, IT consultant, etc., etc., I came to a day when I decided to take full responsibility for where I found myself in my life: I dared to ask myself, "What do I want to do with my life? What do I really and truly love?"
Over the next few days, weeks, months, God/Life/The Universe, whatever you want to call it, led me to a day where I woke up and remembered, "You know what I used to love to do as a kid? Draw. Not design. Draw. Not 'apply my creativity to business.' Draw."
So I did.
