What a weird coincidence! Even more so, that I made this piece my sophomore year in college. It just goes to show how far art travels and little we realize people cherish it. I think about this piece sometimes and how happy I was with how it came out. You'll have to show me the mug sometime, as I've never seen one in person!
Also (furthering the irony since I was your digital teacher) - this was one of the first digital pieces where I incorporated textures!
