Every since I was a kid, I have always wanted to be a cartoonist. I took a turn towards science in high school and ended up working in IT for 20 years.
Drawing a bunch of cartoons that no one would ever see doesn't seem appealing. I always thought I needed some fans, even if my work would not be that famous. With webcomics I can do that. I don't have to struggle finding a publisher, I can do everything myself. It's a great match for me.
Besides, I needed a hobby which brought together all of my skills, but still posed challenges.
That's why I do a webcomic.
