I think I will be getting $4628 refunded in check from TAP award. Enough to buy wacom cintiq (hehe). Of course that is assuming they do get refunded. Well I guess I can just use my current $526 to sign up. See you guys there.
Tempting, actually... (what the hell, it costs less than the camera I'm trying to persuade myself to buy.) Terrible timing, though. I'll be in the middle of a huge job at exactly that time, the way things are going, blargh... (Well, not totally blargh, 'cause I get paid. But blargh, because this would be a great opportunity to brush up on so many things.)
I suppose there's a fair amount of homework and class time and all that? (There's some possibility I'd be insane enough to try and squeeze it into my schedule.)
The order didn't go through (wrong browser I guess...?). It might be an omen because my parents are moving and they need to save money and I would feel like a complete jackass for making them spend at a time like this, even if it's for my education. There was a payment they had to make that they didn't expect and when I heard the amount they had to pay, my brain nearly imploded. ( 5000... )
Though, I hope those classes go well for you, Elwell.
Seems there's a whole bunch of people who, like me, would love to be there, but are unable to go. Although Elwell might go round on an awesome tour, and we could all one day be his adoring rabble of art groupies, it's pretty unlikely.
Thus, why not beg for something slightly more possible? Text or video tutorials on some of the basics, or better still, some DVDs made with Jason Manley and such. Just an idea.

Do you do this class often or should I just get my butt back to NYC and take it this time around? I feel like missing the foundation classes in illustration left me with gaping holes I should patch.
Right now I'm out of state working on that proposal for the publisher. Yes, STILL working on that. They keep saying "fantastic!, can we have more?" Which is THINK is good but it's taking so long I really have no idea at this point.
"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams
