10:00AM FRIDAY
IT’S ONLY A CRAZY DREAM UNTIL YOU DO IT

Realize that every person that ever doubted me, my talents or my choice to major in Art, Can now find a piece of MY WORK in the NIKE Archives. I take a step back and see my wings next to a looping commercial with such admirable athletes like Shaquem Griffin and the slogan “It’s Only a Crazy Dream Until You Do It”and I start to cry. I look at my dad and say “I told you I’d be here one day”
