well, got my grades for my almost last quarter of college.
A Painting Studio: New Pictures
A- Senior Studio Project
B+ Issues in Contemporary Art
B Digital Illustration
conclusion: good enough. but i wish i had done better in digital illustration.
for some reason, i just constantly felt like i was just getting worse and worse in my digital illustration class. i dont know what the problem was. i just always felt out of my element. i tried doing different techniques that my professor wanted me to try out, but man, i just sucked more and more with each one. i really want to get better at digital illustration. i'm getting a scanner probably tomorrow. and i'd like to buy a tablet in the near future. maybe i'll buy one tomorrow when i go to get a scanner.
dang. that class really effected my artistic confidence.
i love my professor Gala Bent. but i just felt like a failure after turning in just about every assignment.

...and i did some random la la la sing sing classes.
its pretty crazy how much i have learned through college. especially in art.
i only had time to take one art class in all of high school. luckily my teacher let me show him all the art i did on my own so i could skip beginning and intermediate art, and just go straight to advanced art.
Majors and Minors I Tried Out Briefly:
it took me until Junior Year to settle on Illustration/New Pictures, though the major wasn't even open until the beginning of my senior year, so there ya go. and now i am a super senior!
