In 2009 I drew, "Viper Queen," with mechanical pencil on standard 11x17 paper. VQ took me roughly, hmmmmm, I don't remember since I was drawing her off and on at my last job. DESCRIPTION
Ever since High School, I loved Michael Turners style, his detail, the way he drew figures - sleek, sexy, beautiful, and gave them emotion. He inspired me like he did with so many others. My first con was the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, where I got to talk and receive sketches from some of the artists at Aspen, but Michael had just passed away. I was upset that I couldn't meet him, he was someone that I looked up to. However, with every story I heard about him I felt like I was getting to know Michael. He was a wonderful, caring, creative artist, and friend. After knowing that he was an amazing person and seeing so much more of his work, I went to my hotel room and began to draw. I have not stopped since. Thanks Michael Turner, for rekindling my passion.
