We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place?

On the fourth anniversary of Beginnings, I talk to LA-based artist Jon Vermilyea. Jon graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2006 with a BFA in cartooning, and his violently psychedelic comics and art have been published in numerous places including Ganzfield, Vice, MOME, Complex and Marvel Strange Tales. Jon also animated the "My Girls" video for Animal Collective, and worked as a background designer on The Cartoon Network show "The Problem Solverz". Currently, he designs backgrounds for "Uncle Grandpa", and his latest book Fata Morgana can be purchased from Koyama Press.
