I have always been someone that has had a hard time staying within any particular box. When I was a kid I wanted to do what interested me instead of the teacher. I can still hear my sixth grad geography teacher at the overhead projector telling us to copy down a passage describing the Aztec culture. I could never figure out the value of just copying what someone else had come up with. I wanted to understand more. So I started drawing what I thought the Aztecs might do in their cities. I made underground tunnels between pyramids for when the high priest wanted to go unseen or impress the common man.
