I lied. Right out of high school, I applied to be an In-Store Artist at my local Tower Records. They asked "Do you know how to use and airbrush?" to which I replied "Yup, I sure do!" Moments later they sat me down in front of one and I had to demonstrate these GREAT talents I had just lied about possessing. Somehow through my panic I managed to get the job. Sometimes learning by simply diving in and going for it can really pay off!
