Funny story. About 7 hours before the doors opened for Sylvan’s show in Manhattan I went back to my alma mater Assumption College in Worcester. I spoke with the students there about where I currently am in my graphic design career. That was amazing. Gave them some great pointers on the real world and to NEVER GIVE UP. I also discussed with the class how I met Sylvan (last photo is of when I first met Sylvan in Boston back in 2017) and how we still keep in touch today. Showed the class a digital painting replicating his recent album cover of Apologies in Advance for the show later that evening I’m handing to him after the show. Absolutely loved it. Keep doing your things guys! It was an honor talking the class.
Fast forward a few hours, now in Manhattan for the Sylvan show. The show was phenomenal. Speechless. Loss for words. @akinyeminyc it was great meeting you after the show bro. Glad you liked the digital painting! And yes I got you bro hahaha.
To @sylvanlacue and @jbenavente_ _. I strongly feel you both deserved this. Sylvan and J your creativity, and ways of expressing it are amazing. Just keep doing you guys! I’m just another wise fan sharing my gratitude to you both. Moments like these are the reason why I love doing what I do (holds tears back haha). 1st Timothy 4:14-15
