Chicago Trip Pt. 2

Goodness, the new term's gone off to a crazy start, haha. Five classes in three consecutive days is a bit much for me, but I'm just gonna have to truck on through!

Sat in on some of my boyfriend's classes in Chicago. I wound up doing a lot of portrait studies, which was awesome practice.

In response to Nophantomsallowed: there's always a bit of grueling/boring classwork, but for the most part the projects are pretty fun. In the lower terms (1-3ish) you're still building on foundation skills, generally speaking. Once you get to the mid/upper terms (4-8), you get to have a hand in choosing what you want to do. Use those assignments as opportunities to really have fun and go all out!

Chicago Trip Pt. 1

Yes, I'm alive!! I'm finally back and starting a new semester at school. Summer term...ew. But can't be helped. Here are some sketches I did of people waiting at the LAX terminal back in April. I was on my way to Chicago!!

And in response to Nophantomsallowed's question: I wouldn't necessarily call Art Center "torture," but it IS very intensive and you have to be serious about your education and willing to work long hours. Some students recommend getting your GE's out of the way at a community college first. If you do, make sure you contact Art Center and confirm that the classes you're taking at the CC/JC will transfer to Art Center. Many classes don't. Hope that helps! Good luck!
