Ah the bitter sting of rejection
Once again the Scholastic Art Awards has rejected me. I wish I could say that I will just work harder, but there is no next year. Ahh well this is just another growing step for me as an artist and I will learn from it. Nothing is more educational than losing.
On a brighter note I am visiting colleges this month! I have been accepted to SAIC, Massart, and Lesley! So now it is time to check them out and make my decision! Deciding, however, has never been a strength of mine so this might take a while
Anyone here go to these schools/ know a lot about these schools? I would love to hear what you guys think
Right now I've been working really hard on finding my style! my senior sketchbook is filling up with reference pictures and characters drawn in different styles. I can't wait to go to my first college class As much as I love my art teachers at my school they are not really sure what to do with me anymore. I've pretty much been on my own this year preparing myself for college work. So far I've taken it upon myself to practice timed drawings, figure drawings, perspective, different mediums, character studies and development. Of course I'm not sure if I am doing it correctly, but I guess I will figure that out when i get to college
I do like the freedom I have, though. Without a teacher I am able to draw anything I want, even if it means sketching for a whole day while listening to music hehe I'm not sure if other teachers are okay with this but I know my teacher doesn't like when you sketch with no larger goal in mind.
I have to head out now I'm going on the train! No better place to get ideas for new characters! Hehe well not today, I have to get over to Massart for an acceptance dinner and tour!
I'll tell you guys what I think when I get back
