I never really knew how much I loved design after taking my 2D design class in college.
My professor is the greatest and even though we students groan when she assigns work, I know that she is one of the few people who really care about the type of work we produce. Her words for this final project were as follows: "Please, just make sure you like what you're making because there is nothing worse than spending time making art you hate"
I also saw her sincerity when she gave me this large slab of beautiful, thick water color paper that looked as if someone had hand-stitched it together. I was the only one dramatically overreacting about this.
I also really believe that something in my mind had changed whilst in this class.
I realized that it doesn't really take an expensive art school or hot-shot city to provide great education. As long as you have a teacher who cares about your time and effort as much as you do.
I do this thing sometimes where I miss something before it is even gone, and I have done so with this class so many times. Its one of my many strange habits.
