Life, already in progress

After taking a tour of the school, doing the Buffy musical thing, dealing with various sicknesses, and having a birthday I applied to the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art near the end of May. I staffed my usual memorial day convention and when I arrived home I received the letter indicating my interview was... 10 days from that date. Dropping another several hundred dollars I don't really have to spare on flight, car rental, etc, I had my interview with the school which I felt I had completely hosed.

About two weeks later, I received the letter. I actually got in. Why I didn't do this 5 years ago? Who knows.

Now I'm just scrambling to try and find financial aid to do this, as I have been comfortably employed the last 5 years at a decent job, I apparently made too much to qualify for any sort free aid. No one taking into account that I really can't WORK while going to school or anything, not at all, but yeah... that's what I'm doing now.

I did a few new pieces for the portfolio, one was a rehash of a Shirt.Woot derby entry that I decided to actually put to canvas to hang or something (because I love The Sims 2 that much).

Maybe when I am constantly doing art in the next year for school I'll actually have something to post.


  1. Thanks! This is pretty much one of my life goals, so it actually happening is pretty terrifying and exciting at the same time.
