All my life I’ve always wanted to create animations, i didn’t merely just watch cartoons as a child, i wanted to create mine;to take my ideas and turn them into two dimensional pieces of art. My toons serve as a stepping stone towards achieving my dream. I began drawing toons after secondary school in preparation for life ahead as an animator. Though the confines of life have placed me in school, studying to attain a white collar job, the joy i derive from making toons and animations will always be my driving force.
