Hi, I'm Kris
I'm Kris. I've always enjoyed writing funny children's poetry (I love Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, Jeff Moss etc.) and always dreamed of being published (still do haha). But I never new anyone who could draw to help bring my poems to life... So I began trying to learn to draw, this was about a year ago. About 10 months ago while on youtube I accidentally saw a video called Fish Girl by Will Terry. I fell in love with wanting to learn how to do that. So, over the course of the past 10 months, without knowing anything about painting or photoshop painting I began my journey. Along with Will and Jake's videos I've tried to learn as much as I can through video tutorials. I hope that by being here I might be able improve my art and to gain knowledge into building a portfolio to maybe approach an agent and become a working illustrator. I've started this journey late in life, I'm 38 years old and this is a dream of mine I'd like to go after and hopefully succeed at on some level. Thanks for reading. And a special thanks to Will Terry for Fish Girl... it sparked me to try and dream again.
Hi Kris, sounds like you have had a similar journey to myself. It's exciting times. Wills also inspired me to become an illustrator.
I wish you all the luck and I am sure your dreams will come true.
Have a great day.
