March 6 is my birthday, and when I was a teenager, I discovered that was the same birthday as Michelangelo. That blew my mind.
When I was 3 years old, my favorite aunt gave me a book "How to draw Woody Woodpecker by Walter Lantz". That moment changed my life forever. I became fascinated with drawing, animation, and even more fascinated with the fact that a few lucky people actually make a living doing this. I decided then that this was the life for me. My passion for drawing keeps me interested in anything visual. Since I was a young boy, I always had an aptitude and love for art.
