    Sometimes you don't get paid too much

    I Found Myself In Art

    It began in 1999 and progressively got better from there. I never got professional training. I taught myself how to draw when I was nine years old and also started writing deep, inspirational things by then too. I fell in love with computer art when I heard of graphics design...
