    Oak Trees in the Sun

    I think art, for me, is kind of playful. I think that's kind of where my style, my approach, kind of everything comes from. If it's not fun for me, I'm probably not producing something good.

    In terms of the poem, I read it, and I just kind of had this idea of a fox curled up around a building. I chose a landmark building in downtown; it's kind of what Syracuse meant to me, and I drew the fox in referencing the very graphic kind of look. I'd never utilized text in any of my pieces, so it was fun finding my style in hand lettering. I think any assignment such as this where you get invested in can always yield positive results.
