"When life has given me lemons...I've used them to ward off the impending scurvy." Really, an illustrator in writer's clothing. Though writing is a passion, illustration goes hand in hand with it. Every story (whether it is posted on Protagonize or not) has a series of illustrations that go with it. The combination of art and writing has worked well for me. Both started out as a past time for me, but I quickly realized i needed both as much as I needed air.
