I am a self taught artist. Aside from the two technical drawing subjects in engineering that I had, I was never formally trained to draw nor paint. But my interest in art, specially drawing started way back while I was a little boy.
Influenced perhaps by my love for comic books plus our eldest brother who used to oil paint on stretched canvass.
From time to time I would experiment on different medium. Three or four years ago I tried my hands on oil pastel. I bought just the basic set with 10 or a dozen colors.
