"While I could easily say that everything I learned at PCA&D has been equally useful, there is one thing that stands out and, incidentally does not have anything to do with what most people think of when pursuing a career in art – keeping deadlines. Throughout the years after leaving college, time management has been something that has been consistently important. It is a huge part of what I do at Laika, as well as having been an equally important component of all the freelance work I have done throughout the years.
Not only did my experience at PCA&D prepare me for a career in art, it was also one of the best times of my life. The knowledge and friendships I gained there are life-long and have greatly enriched my life. It planted the seed that is now growing into a rewarding career that keeps getting better!"
