Been coloring since I was 4. I've totally mastered the art of staying in the lines. You'll never find another person as good as me with a box of 64 Crayolas.

I don't know why I do this to myself! I should give up! I will never work for DC. I have been trying for years and never get a foot in the door! But it's my dream and I am 43 so I can't give up! The Hero Maker
