I was born in Houston, but moved to Colorado when I was two. I grew up in the Centennial State and call it home. I began watching Star Trek in 1976 or so, and went to my first convention (StarCon Denver) in 1984. I started drawing my first comics about that time as well.
I was in 5th grade and my teacher was not impressed as I was SUPPOSED to be studying crawdads.
I went to college and tried to get a degree and, like all good art majors, quit. I didn’t restart college until I was in my 30s, when I went back, got a degree in Animation and then spent a few years in Japan… not doing animation.
… teaching English. But that’s okay, because during THAT time, my Star Trek comic work improved!
I had evolved into a comic artist. So… well… here we are. It’s the 21st century and I’m ready to get cracking!
I have a few different styles that I’ve cultivated. My Manga style is probably the most deeply worked on… but in 2000 I had this weird idea that maybe I could work on an easier style, something that would be less time consuming. A Storyteller’s job is to transmit the story, so if I could somehow find a faster way to transmit my story… Well, Springs was born.
Now I run BOTH of these styles… even though they are nothing alike.
