As a lad I was most always drawing. I did not fit in too well at school at first. When at home I was very happy to sit down with my drawing pad. That magic window, to go anywhere, see anything. Then some of my classmates saw the paintings. Life became better.
Some classmates and friends would ask me to “illustrate” a particular car, dream or monster to fold and later see.
That required skills to bring a vision onto a sheet of paper. This was my beginning as an artist and of my collaboration with the World.
