michael jordan in my sketchbook?
We're thrilled to be working with one of our favorite North Carolina writers, Elizabeth Hudson, editor of Our State Magazine, on illustrations for an upcoming book. This morning as I was plugging away at this painting of Michael Jordan from his days at Carolina, I got to thinking: if you'd told me a decade[!] ago, when I was a directionless student at UNC, struggling to pass chemistry, that one day I'd be painting basketball games (and getting paid for it) I'd never have believed it. As a friend reminded me, it certainly proves the mantra that 'not all who wander are lost.'...and thankfully, not all of us are meant to be chemists either!
What paths have you taken on your way to becoming the person you are now?
