“How long have you been drawing? Where did you learn to draw?”

Like most artists, I’ve been doodling on things since I was very young. I spent many of my childhood years worshiping Disney animation and wanting to become an animator. While the animation dream didn’t last, I knew I wanted to do something in the arts, and here we are!  Beyond high school AP art classes and independent studies, I attended a 2 year course in Graphic Design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.


“What is a Tsepish, how do I even pronounce that?”

Tsepish is just a name from a really old video game I loved when I was kid called Kings Quest 7 (buy it on steam!!) I randomly started using it about 10 years ago as a Warcraft character’s name and have been using it online ever since. Most people don’t pronounce it properly and have trouble trying to. This amuses me greatly. Think of the word tsunami, you’ll get it. tseh-pish
