I work in the technology side of a magazine (both a print and online magazine), Mother Jones. I consider myself a hobbyist 3d image maker because I can't rightfully call myself an artist. I studied Comparative Literature in college, and, yes, job availability for people like me isn't easily had. So, I used my love of computers to switch professions, and at the same time came upon 3d art. I tend to favor science fiction and fantasy in my images, but sometimes I do get carried away by very beautiful 3d models.
