Shourt could swim before he walked (age one)
and drew before he talked (age five).
In junior high discovered
that his drawing skills with technical pens (pornographic) found
favor with those that would otherwise beat him up. In high school
didn't find the same skills helped as much but that the world
of the line was a great place to retreat to. Quit junior college
to work for a special effects house doing storyboards and rotoscope.
In later years jumped to digital effects. The preoccupation with
the line varied during these times. After a long time of not being
hired took up a good offer to move to New Mexico. The line now
flourishes. Real world and digital.
