Ever since I was a boy I loved to draw. I dreamed of becoming some kind of artist when I grew up. But my Dad urged me to find a career that assured a reliable income, benefits, etc. So, I took the conservative route and pursued law enforcement.

That was just the reality in those days. It was hard to see a way to make a living creatively then. Now that the internet is so ubiquitous, and tons of opportunity exists, a lot more kids are going for their more creative dreams.
I have a similar story of giving up on my dreams, but now I’m on a mission to take them back.
Thanks for the inspiration, John! 🙌
