Much Better

I must say that this year's portfolio day went much better!
I had the opportunity to present my portfolio to Libby Hux. She is Calart's admissions counselor.
I made an appointment with her previously about 2 months ago.
And she remembered me. Very sweet of her :)
She flipped through my portfolio and seemed to like it.
The only critique she gave me was to re-organize my portfolio. And she told me to include my sketchbook even though it's a hot mess :P
I'm really glad. Maybe too glad? I didn't hear anything negative about my portfolio.
Which is a good thing. But I guess it was too good to be true, so I wanted to hear some negative stuff too.
It was great though, I'm glad that it went really well this time.
I guess I'm ready to apply. And she suggested that I make another appointment with her before I submit my portfolio.

But, at the same time I'm really enjoying Otis.
So we'll see what happens.
Time is flying by so fast. When you start attending art school your weeks become 4 days long.

until next time!


  1. That's really great! I guess that puts you in a tough spot if you're getting accustomed to Otis.

    I do have a a couple more combo packs left...along with 2 more free 2" x 3" original miniature paintings (Chinatown or San Francisco street corner). If you'd like to see photos of the mini-paintings, feel free to email me: gerald_dedios(at)

    Thanks :)

  2. tami! i'm so glad for you
    I hope Calarts works out for you!
    I haven't seen you in forever?! Craziness. Anyways, I hope all is well! Keep up the work! Hope you remember us visioners of irvine.
