"Growing up as a young kid, I knew that I wanted to be a designer. My passion has always been drawing and creating something with my hands," Jacob Vega said. "Now as a grown adult, my passion is still drawing, but it’s more about the feeling or the message that my work conveys. Every piece that I create in some small part is a reflection of how I feel or what I’m going through at the time. Lately, my work has been inspired by my love for the taco. The taco, no matter what time of day/night, is a good way to stop and share the silence of global happiness."
