So my Senior Year at the School of Visual Arts starts in 2 days and I'm very ready for it to start. When people find out that it's my last year in school they always ask if I'm going to miss it. I know that I will, but because I was a transfer student from Pratt I have been in college for 5 years and I think its time to go out into the "real world". I have also been asked quite a bit what do I want to do after I graduate, and I never know what to say. I'm not even sure if I will be able to still live in NYC. But I still have time to figure it out, and my teacher for portfolio this year is the talented BECKY CLOONAN so I'm sure that she will put our class in the right direction for jobs in the cartooning buisness.
Looking over my last post, I see that I reported that Alex was working on my website, and he still is, while he is also working on a portfolio for Nickelodeon, which is exciting! There isn't a day that goes by without me thinking about Fragile Products and my guilt over not updating it in so so long. It's not like I haven't been doing comics, for instance I did a comic about my lovely friend Cat who is a burlesque dancer and I also have been working on drawing up a script I wrote for Jack Harris's class this year called 20 Fingerprints. It is about a girl with four arms who becomes caught up in a murder. She's fun to draw. In other art related news, Alex and I have an etsy-neisse-although right now only bracelets I have made are posted.
The last couple weeks have been pretty busy, since I am helping out at SVA to get the new students used to NYC. Last weekend we moved everyone into the dorms and gave tours of the neighborhood. I refrained from telling freshmen where to get liquor without getting carded, but I'm sure they'll find places if they try hard enough haha. We also took them to see Wicked, my second time seeing it but the first time since completing my thesis project on it, and we took a group to go clean up Central Park. It was hard work because the storms we've been having made a real mess of the trees, but it was satisfying to be able to play a small part in making it better. Today all I have to do is take freshmen to the movies and see whatever they want to see. I want to see Ponyo though!
