Thanks to alicexz (https://www.deviantart.com/alicexz) for the feature, truly appreciated! I came on today and noticed a spike in page views, logged in and was confused as to why I had so many messages!
Also, I recently received a scholarship from the Palette and Chisel and I'm going to be a finalist in an exhibition at the Union League of Chicago tomorrow night, May 31st, from 5:30 - 7:30. More info on my blog: http://adam-nowak.blogspot.com/2012/05/union-league-and-palette-and-chisel.html
Things are looking up for the new year. Taking better care of myself and keeping focus. A small snippet from my adventures at art school: having a core group of friends that you can all relate to in any way including similar views on art can and will help so much. It's something that I think happens everywhere but it seems like most people will not put in the time and effort to really make a difference for themselves while they're still in school. I'm guilty of falling off the track a few times but you have to stop for a second and readjust, just like falling off a bike over and over again and picking yourself up. I'm really grateful for havi
