You know those people who need to find the 'trends' in music, fashion, etc. first? Just, you know, so they could say they did....
I kind of think that can be pretentious.
But then I realized, I did the same thing about 10 years ago....when I watched & discovered the talented artist lying in my then boyfriend. I remember the talks we had about doing 'art school' or not. I remember seeing what interested him and what his teachers said to him about his potential.
Here he is....working at a design firm filled with some of the most talented people alive, (really!)....in fact, you can check out a few blogs that Joel & his buddies, Lee & Mark were featured in.
So proud of this man....and that I discovered him first.
