I want to either go to Ringling or cal arts, but at my present skill they would laugh at me....
I haven't drawn with much dedication or effort over the years, and at my advanced age (19) I felt it was impossible to be admitted to the art school of my choice.
furthermore, being the lazy sloth that I am I have art is only one of the many things I am bad at. in fact I wouldn't have gotten off my ass to make something of myself if my dad hadn't sat me down and told me, objectively, that I suck.
a lot has happened in 3 months, and long story short I will be sworn into the airfoce where I hope to serve as a linguist. from what I see its a pretty good package. I get a free ride to any college (including art schools) in the US. (provided they accept me)
I have not forgotten the childhood goal to be an artist that I have done little in the past to accomplish. (besides idle day dreaming). so in that regard I have decided to create a sketchbook to chronical my progress from today onwards.
there are no lifedrawing classes in san antionio so I have resorted to illustrating my own strange face and body via a mirror next to my computer desk. I do a lot of drawings on my tablet with sketchbook pro, or simply plain sheets of printer paper with pens and graphite/conte.
here is a list of my recent self portraits. the latter posts are more accurate. (the one with the wider jaw)
