Yesterday was an epic moment for me in my career. I went back to where I started this design stuff back in 1990 at Akron University to talk the students with my classmates Jacinda Walkerand Jermel Wilkerson Sr.about Life After Art School Twenty Years Later!!!! I can’t thank the school enough for molding us and have us come back to tell our story.
