Heroes are not always the bigger than life people that we admire from far away, the giants of the industry or award winners. Sometimes heroes are those who have the greatest influence on our work. Who go above and beyond to cheer us on or offer thoughtful advice when we are stumped. The artists who will influence you the most, who will be your heroes, are your contemporaries. Heroes are the ones you grow with as artist and see each other's careers take off.

If you are lucky enough to be in a good critique group, you know who your heroes are. Thank you Janee, Roz, Paige, Laura and Patty!
