I first got into Supernatural because, frankly, I am cheap. I picked up the first four seasons at a Black Friday sale for like eight dollars (American) a piece, and sat on them for a few months before I finally watched them. Once I did, I was hooked! I started watching live right around Swap Meat and stumbled across fandom thanks to insomnia and late night Wikipedia browsing. There was no going back after that. This is my first real fandom, and even though I have diped my foot into others, It is my home. And for the record, I am a self declared Sam!boy/ Jensen!boy.
I was always a doodler, since grade school. The first thing I remember really getting into and trying to draw were Disney characters. When I was growing up, they had this limited run of Coca Cola cans with Disney characters on them; I would spend hours trying to draw those exact images. Shortly after that, I got into comics (mostly Marvel) and started trying to draw the characters from the Marvel Universe Trading Cards and then coming up with my own. I only took a few art classes in High School, and since they didn't offer distance learning art college courses, I pretty much gave it up after that. When I first got into fandom, I was strictly an author. It was only when I was running into issues completing one of those Bingo Challenge squares, that I decided to draw something again. When I noticed that we had a Disney-themed challenge, j2_everafter that I got really excited about doing fan art. And since then, I have been more so focused on art than my writing-- which is perfectly fine by me.
