I’m taking a class this semester and it’s been very eye opening, literally. I decided I wanted to up my game so to speak with my own graphic design work. I have, on occasion, done some graphic work for OTN and lately I have found that I tend to go back to the same patterns […]

This Sunday, maybe shortly before noon, a new batch of “adults” will be cast into the world. It’s commencement weekend here at SU and the class of 2015 is about to graduate.
