GOOOOOD Morning!!

Background is my main strive in life my wife and kids. I’m a father of 3 so I have my hands full. When I’m not working, my joys are to tap into the inner child and play with my art which is card based. I have dabbled in surreal before but I’m no comparison to the great artists on here. As a child I was a major comic book fan and I have an Extensive Card/Comic collection of both Sport Players and Superheros. I was raised by a single parent mother who put my brother, sister, and myself before her priorities. The morals my mother instilled in me is worth more than it’s weight in gold and I am just trying to replicate that with my own children. I was a Crime Scene Investigator in Florida from 2008-2016(combo of internship and service). Being in that field you have to develop a sense of humor and build a bond with your coworkers that is stronger that any bonds you make. From there I dabbled with some digital art based off of Photoshop training and got addicted (I lost a lot of my FL work from a cheap external hard drive malfunction so it has been a fresh start). From Florida I moved to NC after my mothers lengthy Breast Cancer battle. No sense in being 700+ miles away from the woman that made me who I am today. Kind of like the childhood story Love You Forever (read it with tissues nearby)

My mom has been in remission for 4 years now and going strong!! I found the love of my life and moved to the mountains with her two girls and we just had our first boy in september!. It’s been a weird past year with everything going on. I take work how I can get it now working in a Large Distribution company working remotely so selling artwork is a source of income hopefully. Main thing is I’m happy, we’re happy and we are taking life day by day enjoying the family time as much as possible. Even though we moved I’m still close by to my wonderful mother :smiley:
