What inspired me?.... Well, my family had a 2 to 3 yr stint in Japan so I grew up watching anime and Disney.....And then they finally go around to selling the mangas in the 1990s.....Well, let's say, adding in some talent for writing and natural drawing talent and finding Megatokyo and this I think now obsurce webcomic called Umber, a werewolf comic....seeing at least a number of early webcomicers do well...than fanfiction of course.... I think the turning points was that I didn't have the stomach for doctor or the head for psychology, requirement for teaching, so one had to find something to do with an art degree...so ya, it's cuminlative for me..
What keeps me drawing or at least trying to draw comics? I'm not completely sure, it's more of a really bad habit I have but this time I think I got the story down....maybe....total missed the answer.....blagh.
