Throughout his career as an illustrator, Jingo M. de la Rosa has been told time and again that one must have a single specialty in order to succeed professionally as an artist. Over the years, he has come to embrace the idea that not having a niche is his niche. In this presentation, he will talk about how collaboration and cross-pollination with other art forms – music, specifically – have further enhanced his career and artistry.
