Shane Lewis -- Story Guy / Illustrator
If you ever meet Shane make sure you have 5 dollars to pay him to look like he knows you... I only had three so I got the handshake. Like a disney atrraction Im tellin you.
Shane has been a long time inspiration to me and rocks my sox that Im in the same building with him. Was so awesome to meet the guy who every time he posted made me laff with his stories to his illustrations. I love to animate but would like to understand more story. Hopefully ten dollars will get me a smile and a story tellin tip.
"I always liked to draw but never considered it a possible career choice until I was about twenty. Then I started drawing... a lot. I still wasn't a great artist when I graduated from college... and I'm still not great now, but I was good enough, and I lucked into a job.
"I like animating, but I prefer working in story, which is what I've been doing for the last four years. I'm better at helping decide what should happen than I am at making it happen. I love that I have a job doing some of the things I most like to do: drawing, telling stories, laughing, writing, and playing video games... it's a good life."
Freak Shane.. hooka a brutha up!!
