hey look a talking horse
Hey, how was the CalArts online portfolio development class? I'm thinking of taking it the next session and am wondering if it's worth the price.

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. 

where are you from?

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.)
