Work to be Published in CMYK MAGAZINE
I am honored to announce that my work will be featured in CMYK Magazine's 40th Issue, to hit newsstands this April. The above piece, Blackbirds Are Gathering was selected through the magazine's "Call for Aspiring Creatives," one of the most high-profile emerging creative portfolio contests in the nation. It's moments like these when you can take a moment to step back and breathe; to look upon all your hard work and remember why you pursue your greatest passion in the first place . . . because it's something you live to do, and it's something you're meant to do. I simply can't imagine doing anything else with my life that would bring me so much joy and satisfaction.
For us creatives, even the tears (what creative pursuits come without them?) that try to sometimes get in the way of us reaching our dreams are worthwhile moments of growth that only prepare us for better things down the road. I know it'll really hit me when I see it printed. And I cannot fail to give my thanks to all those involved in my life -- family, friends, mentors, and peers -- who help make a moment like this that much better, and that much more special. You all know who you are!
