Mudern Art
For the first time in four years, I walked into the school where I had spent 11 formative years of my life to share my journey and insights on finding a good job with the next generation of graduates. Little did I know that this trip had stored something profound to teach me in turn. In this blog post, I share my experience and how it impacted me as an art director and as a person.

Overview
What is art? For GMC, it's a truck out in the woods spraying, dragging and covering canvases with mud. But what does it mean?
