“So this is where I’m supposed to tell you all the reasons why I deserve it. How I did a gazillion years of school, a century of apprenticing, then worked my way up with discipline and tenacity through a thousand and one jobs, each only slightly less grueling than the last. Clawing my way from nothing, to now stand atop a pillar of the skulls of my enemies and whatnot.
But that isn’t true. The truth is I totally lucked out. I’ve taken a whopping one semester as an art major. I only ever pursued art as much as it interested me. However, that’s really a lot. I grew up with an obsession for creating. Pictures, stories, music, and firey toxic messes with the chemistry set that was but one of the many horrors I wrought on my parents. I was the kid who wouldn’t shut up about his Wolverine vs. Predator vs. Alien vs. Batman vs. Terminator fan comic. (True story.)
A pretty typical geek, my passions were comics, video games, Dungeons & Dragons. Combine that with a super power of social awkwardness and top-shelf introversion, and you have my recipie for endless free time. …I mean success.
Jump cut to a couple decades later, and I’m living pretty much all my childhood dreams. I’m a part of creating the worlds I love so much. I travel the actual world and get to pretend to be a rock star. My heros, old and new, artists and authors and even some movie stars, are now friends. Despite my never having grown out of the awkwardness and such.
I didn’t earn where I ended up, but I’m sure in love with it.”
