OMG sorry this is so ridiculously late but it was $1000 and it was pretty worth it. i didnt get into calarts but i made a lot of great portfolio pieces. and it was really helpful for me because I wasn’t in art school during the time that i took it (i was taking a year off). john has a lot of great insight into the industry and the school. but go into it with an open mind- whatever work you make in that class will prepare you for the right place. go into it hoping to become a better artist, and don’t let “getting into calarts” become your only/ ultimate goal as a creative person. that will actually limit you! learn a lot from the assignments and do the work calarts asks of you for the portfolio, but be yourself at the same time. and also draw from a vast array of references…. like, take inspiration from different cultures/times in history. don’t let your sketchbook be TOTALLY full of hot young white people. you know what i mean? most of us have been there haha.
virginia/colorado/now i go to school in washington state!
Storyboard frames for my storytelling class. They’re based on the story of Janus killing a bunch of Romulus’ dudes when they tried kidnapping a bunch of Sabine women. My teammate and I split up the project half/half - these are just the ones that I did (so the story probably makes no sense from only looking at these haha.)
for anyone who still visits this blog!!!… i forgot to mention that i did in fact get rejected from CalArts a second time. But I am now starting up at Digipen as a Digital Art & Animation student (BFA) this week. :-)
thanks for supporting me and encouraging me, it seriously makes all the difference!! thank you thank you thanks!
