Here is where the story really begins. And at the start, its a personal story. I’ve traditionally been a A-student. In going back to school after family and marriage, I’ve sometimes found it hard to cope with classwork (particularly in the sciences) while being a good father and husband. And I take it hard when I don’t do well on a test. There is a little bit of me in all the characters I create – it’s almost like splitting my personality into individuals.

Also you can see how I’ve really started to get into shading detail, here.
