“Without struggle, there is no progress.” (Frederick Douglass) It’s called ‘The Perfect Progression’.  The drawing took about 2.5 years to execute.  It was worth it because it was an idea in my mind for years and one I haven’t seen done before since I founded the business.  But before the official launch to the public […]
