Comments:For as long as I remember I was drawing comics. All kids draw, but for me it was definitely something more. The first comic I remember getting really *serious* about was Uncanny X-Men #151. By 1983 I had started collecting mostly Silver and Bronze age back issues in addition to my usual newsstand pickups (showing my age here!).
In the fourth grade, one of my best friends and I started publishing our own DIY kids comics based on the Spectacular Spider-ham concept applied to X-Men.

Tinkering with my toys was inevitable. My first (mostly horrible) attempts at customizing started when I was about ten years old. I remember turning a Star Wars Boskk figure into a rudimentary Lizard by painting his parts green and his shirt white, then adding a Zuckuss coat. Hey, I needed more villains than just Dock Ock to battle my Secret Wars Spidey! I would often accessorize figures via building toys and cardboard--Lego Ghost traps for my Kenner Ghostbusters, a Cobra Weather Dominator device made out of Construx, G.I. JOE HQ made from boxes, etc.

Fast forward more than 25 years and I still enjoy tinkering with my toys (and now my kids' toys too when a little repair attention is needed!). I am thrilled that there are serious artists working with toys as a legitimate medium--totally feel like it's the right one for me!
