First time I published anything, I was only 6. My art teacher, Mrs. Schafer had given us crayons and pens to create drawings. Obsessed with red hair, I drew a leprechaun. Impressed by the work, she submitted my drawing to the school administrators. They used it for the design on the march calendars each student received to keep up with important dates. I knew then, I was special and wanted to make a living creating art.
