I was a children's artist, doing advertising and magazine art geared toward kids. I originally wanted to be a children's book illustrator. Toys never entered my mind until I started freelancing for Mattel's ad agency, and picked up a couple of jobs doing package illustration and puzzle art for a small LA toy company. When I landed my first "big job" at Mattel, and opted to be a product designer rather than a package illustrator, I realized immediately that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. 35 years later it's still my dream job.
