I did this oil painting in college. It was inspired by the opera La Bohème. My illustration teacher Teresa Fasolino told me that I should submit it to the Society of Illustrators annual student contest. I was like, yea, sure, OK. I got my slides (probably the day before) and sent in my entry. A few weeks later, I get a phone call from the late Jack Endewelt, amazing illustrator and head of the School of Visual Art's illustration department, congratulating me. I got in!
On this #ValentinesDay I want to encourage you all to love yourself enough to never doubt yourself, your talents and your abilities. Keep honing your craft and chasing those dreams. Life is too short not to.
