Blame It On Star Wars
I mean really, that’s where my fascination with following compelling characters and my love for design all started for me as fan. And make no mistake. I only create because I was first, a fan.
While it’s true that Star Wars involves alien planets and futuristic gadgetry while my current work is set on present day Earth, and there’s not a single alien in sight or even alluded to, my notions of even being an author, fine artist and musician started as a seven year old who was absolutely captivated by the ships, the lore and most importantly, the characters who I followed not just to the Death Star, but to Hoth and a variety of other places only referenced in the books.
It was simply irresistible.
Most importantly, it embedded in me a desire to create. It wasn’t enough to just go where other’s imagination took me.
