It's been maybe a year of me discovering this media, and there's not much of skill there just yet but I've started to realize and appreciate that specific beauty in its subtleties, that perfect marriage of design, illustration, and animation, which gives me a positive blast in the head at times.
Chicago is one of those cities that sweep you right away and get you addicted (the weather's just sweeping though). In all of my time here (the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly) I have been and still am learning to live here, appreciate its mentality and laid back attitude, and love its shapes and dynamics.
Thank you, Chicago!
Sincerely, your 4-year resident.
