Time to visit Calarts!

Well, my flight is in a good 12 hours, and this will likely be my last access to a computer for the next five days. Can't wait to get there and finally see the campus and the artwork. I'm going to take tons of pictures and bug as many teachers with my awful portfolio as possible. Whats even better, all of this is occurring during a lecture from one of the animators at Pixar and someone else at an advertising animation company!

A weekend full of critiques, life drawing classes, lectures from professionals and animation lockdown! The holiest of combinations for any animator. Man, if one weekend is like this, imagine what being enrolled at Calarts for a whole year must be like! :D

Dear world, I'm in portfolio hell.

*various grumbles among swear words*

The Preferred deadline is like, right here almost. It's just three weeks away! Whats worse, I don't think my portfolio will be up to snuff by that deadline. Nothing I have in it really has a punch in it, at least I think. Add in the stress of college applications and you have yourself one hell of an exciing month coming up. Oh well, I'll get profesional pointers in little under a week, during my trip to Calarts which should be pretty damn exciting. But really, putting together a portfolio while getting piles of homework done is a horrible, horrible thing. Remember kids, get your crap done early!

I'll upload some portfolio considerations given the time. Right now... I got a biology report that needs doin'.
