I was raised by the 80's. A pure blend of comics, cartoons, toys, movies, and video games. Let's throw in t-shirts and sugary cereals too. Maybe some sunglasses for flare.
I've done art since I was a small child drawing in books and on the back of test papers at school. I drew ninja turtles and Spider-Man and monsters and such. I guess that never changed. Although for my freelance work now, I do sometimes have to draw stuff like potatoes and logos.
