VOLUME 27 ISSUE 04


EDITOR'S NOTE 2

Here it is, our moment has come. Starting our degree a few years ago, no one could have imagined that this is how it would end. Through the shattering of our realities, perspectives, and difficulties, from all over the globe - we all made it. The last year made us stretch our limits far from what we would have known or imagined, and caused us to adapt to uncontrollable circumstances. Through resiliency, persistence, and genuine passion for our craft, we managed to find harmony through creation in the most challenging times. I'm sure that these life lessons will forever go with us. Keep exploring yourself and your art. Don't forget to give a louder expression to your gifts, remember that you are a work in progress, and dare to transcend those portals that will feed your evolution. Take some time to yourself, and be proud of making the past years what they were. This issue celebrates the creations of the class of 2021 and our main editors as a part of it. After a few years in the Visual Opinion family, it is our time to say goodbye as well. One journey has come to an end, but another one begins in the same breath. Here's to our next adventure! Love and light, Ori VISUAL OPINION

A LETTER TO MY FELLOW CREATIVES

58

I don't have much advice or anything to give you all. I mean, we're all graduating together so I don't know what I know that you don't know in this regard. I will, however, like to say this I hope that you always remain childlike in both your heart and your art. Remember to not overthink. Trust your instincts. Don't worry about if whatever you create fails or not. The beauty is in the construction anyway. Try and see an opportunity in every situation. Wake up looking forward to the day. Remember to smile when you feel happy. Like really hard...like with your whole face. I hope you stay curious. I hope you keep your imagination free. I hope you learn from your past, lean into the future and live and love in the present.
