CHARACTER:

1: Mastery:

You understand that with time, focus, and energy that you have the capacity to create anything. Perfection is never achieved, it is a continuous pursuit.

2: Coherence: 

  • We are not alone but part of a connected whole. We must learn to work together. Alone we can go fast, but together we can go far.

3: Continuous Delivery:

  • Until your work is touched by others it is merely an illusion. It is through continually manifesting your ideas into physical form that you are able to see and improve them. All art is finished by the viewer.
