||Many years ago at the prize counter
of an arcade, a young boy makes the toughest decision of his
life. Candy or toys. After a quick tantrum he gets
both. The candy is soon eaten, but the toy lasted for
years to come. The boy and the little rubber figurine
become fast friends, going on many adventures of danger,
action, romance, and self made music videos. The boy,
after threats from his older brother, realizes that his little
friend and their adventures will not go on forever, they need
to be cherished and preserved somehow. So the boy
starts drawing, desperately trying to live the adventures on
paper, for soon after it is promised, the day comes... the toy
is flushed down the toilet by a bullying brother. But it
is too late! The toy lives! In the imagination of
a young boy, and in his sketchpad! He shows his drawings
to everyone and tells the stories... but they suck.
That was in 1994. Inspired by my old rubber friend, I've
always enjoyed cartoons with overly enhanced features, big
expressive eyes, giant hair, etc. Which explains my love
for the anime/manga style. After years of tracing my
beloved big headed heroes out of the pages of comic books and
off paused television screens, I proudly call myself a
"self-taught cartoonist". I still think I
suck, but to a far less degree. And for writing talents?
Well, I get my dear friend Mr. Worthington to write for me.
I still try
