How did you get a career as an artist?
Funny story. I found out about a colorist position at WAG (then Old World Prints) and applied, planning to work there between undergraduate and grad school. This was shortly after 9/11 and they couldn't hire me. I called back weekly and then monthly, and then 5 days before I graduated, I got the call from the then owner. At some point during that first year as a colorist, I was accepted to Pratt Graduate School, received a scholarship, and the current owners of WAG bought the company. I was heading to New York in my mind, but torn because I didn't want to leave Richmond. The new owners convinced me to stay, I became a designer, and the rest is history!
