Since I've admitted I'm a writer, I need to add the other half of my Artistic Hyphenate.
I am a Voice Actor.
You know--funny character voices. Like Mel Blanc (Bugs, Daffy, etc). Rob Paulsen (Yakko Warner). Pat Fraley (Krang). Those guys.
It all got started when I would make up voices for the NPCs in my campaigns. (As in D&D campaigns. Yes, I freely admit geekery.) Two goblin guards would sound like a couple of gangsters. The goblin leader as Don Corleone. The former mercenary-turned village blacksmith as Sean Connery.
A friend said, "You should do voices for cartoons."
'Nuff said. I went and found me some classes.
Now, I've done a number of audio drama podcasts. With more to come.
Nothing paid yet.
But I'm working on that...
