My love for graphics started long ago I think maybe 1998 when I got my first computer and created a t-shirt for our Youth Ministry at the church we attended at the time.
After owning a computer for two years I got internet and discovered VP or "Virtual Places" from excite.com. There I could enter the chat rooms with a small image of 102x116 - my pallet for graphics made its debut. My goodness what we could do with that small amount of pixels and I even had a "Paint Shoppe" for others to come and make requests for their own "avatars".
Then in April of 2007 a co-worker friend introduced me to the IMVU.com virtual environment. I think I got hooked developing there only after a few months.
My creations for IMVU came to a halt in 2012 when I rediscovered my Second Life account I had created in 2008. I am there now - a honored resident that rents a beautiful tropical Island and collects A LOT of Second Life residents creations. THEY ARE EPIC to say the least and I am enjoying the life of virtual reality to the full. One day I will become a creator for Second Life. I have taken nearly all the in world classes at the Builders Brewery in world at Second Life. I am learning Blender sloooowly. So soon.
Graphics are my love - truly. Although I have never attended graphic school I feel I am advanced about graphics and using color because I am self taught for more than a two decades now. I am savvy with logos and business slogans - not to mention I can also create websites.
I see many of you putting "LOVES" to some of my stuff and it always delights me. I wish I could get back to every one of you with a "thank for such and such", but real life is just way too busy and I have other online activities "graphically" keeping me engaged.
