From a very early age, I was introduced to the press, radio, and TV. I sang live on the radio, I was being interviewed for my sketches and illustrations on the TV and I even had a pen pal via children’s magazine (remember those?). 

As an artist, I am always thankful for the opportunity to get my voice, works, and opinions out there in whichever form that takes – more so if I can draw attention to some issue or problems that involve the broader artistic community. It’s really not all about self-promotion, at least I think so; it’s about sending the necessary message to as many people as possible. 

To all my friends and acquaintances in the press, be it magazines, TV, radio, or internet sites – thank you for the years of coverage, and here’s to many more!
