I'm truly honored and excited to announce that I've been asked to be on an art and design career panel to talk about my profession... my profession. It seems almost silly to me that I'm considered a professional now, when it feels like I just graduated the Art Institute (2014), but it also excites me to know that former instructors are recognizing my work and are impressed enough to nominate me for opportunities like this.
This 2-day event will be full of successful panelists sharing there industry knowledge with college students majoring in art and design, or as (former illustration instructor) RAD, would call them, design babies. Amongst the panelist I will also be answering questions with my former instructor/ art director/mentor from Green Acres Advertising Design, Andrew Oakes, who recommended me for the opportunity.
