My Interview With Dropship Horizon

I'm the subject of short Spotlight interview over at the hub of all things 15mm, Dropship Horizon.

I won't repeat the text (you'll have to go over there to read it), but I wanted to thank the folks that helped me get here, and who inspire me.

Chad Hardin (Marvel, DC, Boom Studios)

Alan Davis (Marvel and DC)

The list goes on and on, and if you're reading this and I left you out, please don't be mad, I haven't had my Blue Monster for the morning yet. I'm fortunate to know and work with most of them, and inspired by the rest.

I don't know Alan Davis, Erik Larsen, Kevin Long, Kevin Siembieda, or Dave Johnson, but they're huge inspirations.

As to the pics above...the CAVs are a side-by-side comparison of the hand-sculpt Dictator, and my first professional CAD model, the digitally-sculpted Dictator. Those are my kids, Olivia and JBR2. That's my beautiful wife Rachel standing next to my goofy self. Obviously, I'm a lucky man.

Thanks, and stay tuned.
