It’s funny, because when I was going to high school, I always thought kids went to art — that took art classes in high school were sissies, in a way.1 They were sort of — I don’t know how to explain it, but it was not my cup of tea. I was out in auto mechanics and places. But Mrs. Soares, the art teacher, she knew that I was a big proportionalist, where I could take — I had a good proportion and I could draw. So, if it was having like this Sadie Hawkins dance or something at the high school, she would get in touch with me, and I would sketch out her posters for her. I had a big spread of paper, and she’d show me a picture of it, and I could draw it. So, I had been a good proportionalist, and I was — so that was sort of my exposure to art there. But then the rest of it, if you want to do something, you can learn to do it.2
