Busy Business

I know I may be repeating this a lot but... I really feel like I don't have much time to do all the things I want!
And school is coming ever closer. I'll be following a pretty busy schedule once I start school.
School sounds very exciting :) I'll also be looking for a part time job once I'm fully moved into our new place.

But I wanted to take note about the visit that I made to Calarts last week to visit Libby Hux.
It was a very good visit and I left with some very constructive feedback. Libby also suggested that I make another appointment with her before I turn in my portfolio. I'm so glad that she's super nice and is willing to help. I didn't feel like I was stepping on anyone's toes or anything.
I made some notes about my old portfolio.
- drawings were a bit too formulaic
- the sequence of the portfolio was a bit uneven
- experiment! take risks! show them who I am!
- put in some personal pieces
- most importantly... put more of ME into the portfolio!

About 300 applicants apply to the character animation program. Only about 40 - 50 get in. Will next year be my lucky year? I really hope so. I feel really good about my work right now and I also feel that I'm going in a good direction. I'm a bit overwhelmed right now because of all the work that I have to do.
So I'm going to keep this entry short.
I was rendered useless by that horrible stomach flu this week. So I gotta make up for my loss of time.

Until next time!

Oh, and I wanted to post this lovely picture of my dog :)
