Graphics have always been a part of my life.

When I was a little kid in the second grade, I got sidelined by a kidney infection and couldn't get out of bed and run around or go to school for about 5 months so my only source of amusement was a bunch of drawing materials.

Nowadays, my free time is still usually spent playing with graphics but now it's usually on the computer.
Why? No clue.
Maybe because there's less clean-up.
