I love to learn, I just can't imagine not learning. While sometimes, I get so frustrated with the internet and new programs, but it also brings so much right to my fingertips.

I don't know about you, but I never really knew what I wanted to do while I was working in my corporate life. Somehow, I ended up working and being in charge of the accounting department for my company. While I did enjoy the challenges and the people I worked with, I just never felt like this was “it”.

I was very fortunate to work with some people who were cutting edge programmers back before we really had personal computers. And I found I really enjoyed learning new programs. In some ways, I feel I was born too soon, as I think I would have really enjoyed working in that area.

But now I get to learn all kinds of new programs and get to test my drawing skills. When I started to illustrate our early reader children's books I just started to draw digitally. While it certainly presents its challenges I am having fun learning. I am now illustrating our newest children's book Keeney Eagleye, Chief Lookout Elf.

Well better get back to work....till next time.
