Growing up, I wanted to be a children's book illustrator. When I went to college, I spent my first 2 years as an illustration major (before switching to computer graphics). Drawing is still something I love to do, even if I'm not glued to a drawing pad as I was as a child. Now that I have kids of my own (who also love to draw), I'm rediscovering my love of putting pencil to paper.  I'm even working on a children's book inspired by my kids.
