THEY MADE THEIR OWN WINGS; THEY MADE THEIR OWN WAY BY ALEC DEJESUS

April 3rd, 2018

Last year I headed out to the Midwest, Peoria Illinois to be exact, and I heard some rumors floating around that Alec DeJesus was working on some sketches for a mural he would be creating in Florida. Needless to say, I was excited because every time I visit, Alec is working on something bigger and better and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Sadly I couldn’t stick around to see the wall coming to life but Alec was more than happy to share his story, the meaning behind it and how a small reunion took place.
