Never used to understand why people with no artistic talent join sites of this nature until I found myself doing just that. I can not even draw a straight line between two points and convincingly sell it as a line, and yet here I am, with a meager profile on one of the largest artist collective sites in existence.
Why? Because I work with a small RPG publisher, Adventureaweek.com, and hunting the next artist to work with has become just one of the things I do. And, if one wishes to meet artists, well, one must go where the talent is, no?
