In memory of Professor George Parrino:
To this day, I can still hear his words loud and clear, "Do not ever let yourself become hypnotized by your own artwork."
George was an amazing artist and professor who pushed his students beyond their intellectual and creative potential. He did not settle for visual fluff, nor could you sneak it by him. And if you tried, you were met with a carnival of embarrassment.
