2 1/2 Months, and all you get is a Doodle.
Well I'm sure it seemed like this blog was dead for most of the summer. This might be the biggest break that Ive taken from posting since i started this blog. I have been very busy lately. A little update, this summer I left Tri-c, after once again not being able to get the classes i needed to finish my associates degree. So Due to the INCREDIBLE generosity of my Father, plus a much appreciated scholarship, i enrolled at the Cleveland Institute of art, and will be there until the spring of 2014. Almost 7 years of college and just a Bachelors degree isn't the best way to do it, but I'm finally on the way out.
So, three weeks into real art school and I'm feeling pretty good. I have some genuinely challenging courses this semester that have kept me on my toes. I'm also surrounded by a number of equally, if not more, talented and skilled illustrators and that is invaluable to help me improve. Not to mention they've all been really nice, open and friendly. I do find it amusing that even third year art students get all nervous and shy for critiques. I have, for some time now, really enjoyed critiques and found them very useful, if done right. So far, my instructors have provided great feedback. I love that my studio instructor has a very frank, no bullshit attitude.
As you can imagine, i have a few projects in the works as we speak. I will start posting new stuff as soon as possible. I foresee a lot of work in progress stuff, as some of these projects seem to drag on a bit. However, one of my classes, 'Human forms: heads hands and feet' requires constant sketching, so expect plenty of hands, feet and portrait sketches. I will probably have some up tomorrow.
Also, i have a few personal projects brewing that i want to take my time on, so you'll see bits of those soon too.
