I joined Neopets in 2003 when I was just 11 years old, and though I am not very active anymore it was a huge part of my life and an important part of who I am today. It was the first time I saw a practical application of art outside of animated films, it inspired me to create worlds and characters and spurred me to draw every day, and I still credit Neopets with kickstarting my in an art career. So while bright, colourful cartoon monsters don't grace my galleries nearly as much as they used to they still hold a powerful place in my heart. Thank you, Neopets, for making me the artist I am today.
