I am a well-traveled guide who wants to help you uncover your own passion and voice and to make work that comes out of those discoveries. The only criterion that matters: Does it work? The only way to get there? Make more work. The more you learn the more you learn, and the evolution of your work becomes more sophisticated, powerful, satisfying and speaks compellingly to others. This is true if you draw comics or build monumental installations.
