I dropped out of Yale because I wanted to pursue my passion for art. I’ve always loved art, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to the world of digital art that I found my true calling.
I started by doing simple drawings on a tablet, and then moved on to creating digital paintings. It quickly became apparent that this was something I wanted to do professionally, so I focused all my energy on learning everything I could about it.
The more time I spent with digital art, the more time it took away from other things in my life. Eventually, I had to make a decision between pursuing my dream or continuing my education at Yale.
It wouldn’t be fair to say that dropping out was easy; it was one of the hardest decisions of my life. But ultimately, I knew that if there was any chance of success in this industry, then quitting school would be the best way for me to pursue it.
