I’m Sollin and I don’t dream about making a Superbowl ad.
I came into this industry by drawing Newspaper cartoons, and my goal is to make an ad worthy of becoming someone elses Newspaper cartoon. That’s not going to be easy, as I know most journalists (including my journalist family) hates ads. Luckily, what they do like are things that are interesting.

So do I :)
