-How long have you been drawing?
Forever, it seems like. Since I was very young.
-Did comic books play a large role in your love for drawing?
Eventually. I think I was around 10 when an uncle gave me one of those random assortments of Marvel comics that (I think) they used to sell at places like Costco - which was pretty much my first exposure to comic books. After that I was copying things from inside those books.
-Have you always wanted to draw comic book characters?
Nope. Storytelling though - I've always liked art that tells a story. Even if it's a single image rather than sequentials.
-Did comics have a major impact on the way you draw now?
Very much so.
-What was your favorite comic title (and tell me why, please)?
I have a hard time choosing a single favorite title... There are a couple of issues that had a big impact - Conan the Barbarian 231 was in that assortment, I think. I liked the cover (which had nothing to do with the interior) and the story was complete - well, the end of the story was, and the beginning was summed up well enough. Neat story too. Marvel's Godzilla issue 2 (which I must have gotten from my parents... otherwise I don't know where it came from) in which Godzilla attacks Seattle and is driven off by SHIELD. Mostly because Godzilla attacks my home town. And the Incredible Hulk 217 - another one from before my time that I'm not sure how I got. The story was great and complete in a single issue.
