How did you become an illustrator?
I grew up with one goal in mind: to draw in exchange for food. So after completing my BFA with a concentration in Illustration at the Atlanta College of Art (now known as Savannah College of Art Atlanta), I pursued just that. I started working in the animation field on the TV shows Frisky Dingo and The Xtacles illustrating characters, backgrounds, and props. Highly proficient at swapping my art for food, I was soon promoted to lead storyboard artist for Archer, working in the storyboard department for the first two seasons.

How did you become an artist?
Oddly enough, being an illustrator was literally the last thing I thought I would end up as. I was always reasonably talented at drawing growing up, but never considered it could be more than a hobby. Math and science were always the priority! So after graduation I enrolled in Engineering and, later, Finance.
