I drew a lot! And got excited about learning a lot, and had good timing a lot. That’s about it.
Or: WB had a storyboard revisionist position to fill right when I was taking Jay Oliva's class at CDA a few years back, and Jay offered me the job at the end of the term (he said he would have hired me earlier if I hadn’t stopped turning in my homework for a few weeks, GOOD JOB ME). I did storyboard revisions for a year, learned a lot, transitioned to doing storyboards, learned even more, worked hard, made buddies, got a little bit better at drawing superhero butts, got a job offer from a buddy who’d moved to Titmouse, and here I am today!
