How I met Stephen Hamilton
I want to take some time to introduce my partner in crime to our followers. I met Stephen a few years ago while we were both studying at Massachusetts College of Art for undergrad. We happened to be the only two freshman students of color living in the Artist Res. We hadn't really spoken or introduced ourselves. About a year later, we were finally introduced through mutual friends, while both becoming involved in the Black Artist Union. Stephen and I had become friends that learn very quick how important it was to gain and lend support to one another within our college community. Even though Stephen and I have two different styles, our interests and inspirations overlap. His work captures the essence of rich black culture, traditions and aesthetics. His work as an illustrator has lent itself to his development in fine arts, drawing a very thin line between the two.
