My name is Hernan Aguilar, I am a free-lance artist based in Waukegan, IL. I have been influenced by the working class of my city. It pushes me to do my best in any position I find myself in. Part of my idealogy as an artist is that everything huge in this world has began very small. Little by little the plant grew into an Oak Tree. The paths and decisions we take in life will define who we are, therefore patience is key to success.
