The Art Department at USD is a hidden gem. Well at least for me anyway. Returning to the “Basement of Camino” (the name it is known by the majors), reminds me of where my journey as an artist and designer began. I struggled there and overcame challenges there. I grew from being shy to working on being confident. I also made friends there who were going through the same things as me. I found these cute little books that chronicles the students form each graduating class and some of our work. I found myself as well as my friends. In fact, the cover art from 2010 and 2011 from two of my very best friends that still inspire me today.
