For a while, I attempted to become a graphic artist.  I taught myself more than a few software packages, and learned the basics of the craft.  But much like Michael Caine’s character in “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” I learned I had the taste and knowledge of the art, but I lacked the talent to do it professionally.  I did get more than a little enjoyment from making the art, and probably will drift back to it in the future, but for now, this is all that remains.
