That is some very shiny stuffJohntaro , circa february 1998
Back in 1998 in high school I spent a week or two on work experience at a company doing administrative work. I was very bored. Mind you back then IT work was kind of a niche thing over here. Luckily I delivered the mail to some of the cool developer folks who teased me (16 yo) with stuff on the internet. They showed me artwork made by Boris Vallejo. This set off two things in my brain.
1. Developers are my people.
2. Maybe I could make some cool drawings.
