The class of 2020 is a historic one, with graduations online, faces under protective masks and the fall semester uncertain. We asked prominent Oak Cliffers to look back at their senior portraits and give themselves advice for the future.
Jeremy Biggers, artist
Jeremy Biggers is an Oak Cliff-based fine artist and muralist, who also has a clothing line, Stem & Thorn.

Advice for his 18-year-old self:
“Cherish the time with your loved ones because you never know how long you have with them. And invest every dollar you make into a thing called ‘Google.’”
