There comes a time in everyone’s life that they must choose what they want to do. David Reddick is one of those people. From his webcomic Legend of Bill; To Garfield; To Star Trek and many others, to say that David is talented is an understatement. He’s a genius! I know we will have a ton to talk about in terms of himself and his art processes.
