Last year I opened up a store that sells odd items. I got the idea for the store from a television show about a couple that sold creepy and mysterious items. I figured there had to be a lot of people in my area that had those types of things sitting around in their attics and basements, collecting dust.

She told me that while her drawings for my own company are great in the two dimensional world, she thought that this company could make them three dimensional and much more interesting.
