Whopple:  How long have you been an artist?
I don’t know how to answer that. The knee jerk reaction, like so many others, is to say I’ve been an artist forever.
But the truth is there have been periods of time when I wasn’t an artist. Basically life got in the way.

Whopple:  Tell us about your first attempts to be creative.
I remember a time in grade school when we had to write a story.
I used the letters of the alphabet as characters and did it on a roll of brown paper with illustrations running down the border.

I wish I had that now, it would be fun to see.
