I want to get into Calarts.

Yes, the Calarts of Valencia California. Luckily for me, my artistic skills are no where near the level of accepted students, meaning I need to get to work!! Which brings me to the point of this blog. I'm currently a Junior in H.S., and the ache to get into this top-notch school has me scrambling to improve my skills, create a portfolio, and overall, stop sucking at art to stand out among 10% that get accepted. What a burden. A fun burden though.


BAD ART! THE TOILET
IS WHERE YOU GO!


But it must be done. It is a journey I must embark upon! And yes, you can join me. Watch me improve (or destroy) my art in the period following now until that final portfolio submission. The questions immediately arise! Will my art improve? Will I get in? Will I get utterly rejected? Whatever happens, I hope his blog can be used as a reference for other hopeful animators such as myself who have targeted Calarts as their future, expensive-ass college.

If I get rejected, look at my art as a reference of what not to do and how not to draw for your portfolio!
But hey, if I get in, you'll have a step-by-step reference of what you should do to get into your dream school.
SOMEONE GET THIS KID A MEDAL. NEVER HAVE I SEEN SOMEONE TRY SO HARD.

But hey, what do I know? I still have a lot to learn and no brain mass to learn it with. Damn.
HEY!! WHO UPLOADED MY X-RAYS!?
Well then. The clock is counting down! I officially have 3/4s of a year to get my act together! I'm going to work my ass off drawing until goodness is achieved!

IF ONLY HE COULD READ...
Next time, I'll upload some life drawings for judgement. Stay tuned. Please?

Oh goodie another future Cal Arts student I may get to badger some day. =D This is Jennifer, you posted on my blog a little while ago and I wanted to get back to you. Thank you so much for the kind words by the way. To answer your question regarding last years rejected portfolio, I plan on making a little post about that. Currently, I'm pretty busy between work and school(5 weeks left! AHHH!) so look forward to a big ol' meaty post regarding last year in June. I remember being a hopeful 16 year old, and trying to find as much information as possible on HOW to get into Cal Arts and trying to dig up any information possible so I'm hoping to add my views to the mix soon. Anyways, looks like you're off to a great start, just carry that sketchbook around and make it your new BFF. ;) Well see ya around.

I know this post is from two years ago, seeing as you're know a two second year student at Cal-Arts, but it's good to see that you were accepted! I live in the Newhall area, and I'm finding it difficult to develop a portfolio I feel comfortable submitting. Any sound words of advice?
