Many of the creatives I came across through various markets and events related to this design the most. There was a universal feeling of having to overcome some form of adversity, in exchange for a piece of creative gold. Some created a new song, an original piece, or even a new business venture. Like many others, I was able to come out of it with my own gem: a love for expressing myself through music. The bass guitar was the catalyst that launched me back into my creativity.
