This project was inspired from a moment of immense emotional struggle in my life. Used as a way to pre-occupy myself and turn sadness into joy, I hand drew, digitized and then screen printed a reminder to myself that life continues to change ever constantly. That we dont always have options, and that acceptance often leads to a happier existence.

In all honestly, this print has quadrupled its initial investment of pain, and has brought me more happiness then I ever could have known. It was both hung and sold at the Pre-BFA show that my senior class put on, and has become a way for me to cheer up my own friends and loved ones when they are sad.

A very apparent case of how art and design has literally changed my life.
