    ...I have a sketchbook?

    I still love you steve! You know it! And like I should talk.. if WoW had come out a 2 weeks earlier during the last term I was in, I'd have failed everything.

    Damn, we can't even carpool. Almost had color theory together. I guess I won't see you around at all. I was talking to Kaufman before finals and he told me to charge at a canvas with a paintbrush while naked... Knowing you, I say get rid of Letterform because its in the morning.

    The social life at AC is pretty high if you ask me. I knew people that were going to bars, golfing and freakin road trips. Did they do as well as they could have? Who knows.

    But the social life at AC is freakin awesome. At least for our term since everyone feels so easy going. Few days out of the week I would camp out in one of the room with trans and product guys just doing sketching (picked up some good techniques and tips). Doubt I contributed anything to them since I’m such a mooch hah.

    Although the atmosphere was fun since we had maybe 6 people in the room (trans mostly) and just doing homework. Sounds boring as fuck but everyone had an interesting story to share. But those poor basterds pulled so many all-nighters.

    If anyone is curious you can take over room 201 and pull all nighters. Maybe we could all meet up sometime and do some sketchwork/other homework.

It's so far away and so expensive. AND trying to find a place to live! but damn does it sound worth it . alright wonderful, cant believe how difficult you guys make stuff. ^_^
    could some of you post your portfolios that you got in artcenter with? im curious how hard it might be and what i have to look to.

    hi, i am planning to go to AC, but then i am a lil confused as to w/c major to take. i want something that covers a lot of the bases that i am really interested in like, concept art, graphic design and 3d? can anyone kinda point me in the right direction...??

    my portfoilio that i am gonna show mostly consists of some graphic design, some freehand illus using PS, and a lil packaging design. if anyone can help me out it would be really great, its kinda hard to wade through all 7 pgs here.. but i am kinda leaning towards illustration or GD..

    if anyone wants to see some of my work..

    also... since i am working as a graphic designer and i get paid pretty decent for someone without a degree, i dont want to give up working yet and go to school full time.. is it a good idea to go to school at night? or are there no degree classes at night??

    I feel like you're more of an illu person instead of graphic design, because I don't see a lot of information graphics or type work. Do you do any motion graphics/web design at work?? How is your life drawing background?

    I'm not sure if it will be an issue of you finding night classes (most of them are more of an afternoon block) but more of a question of how you'll balance the workload.

    major is easy. illustration if you want to draw with a stick. graphic design if you want to make brochures for pharmeceutical companies. trans if you like cars and little else. product if you like ipods and mac mini's. photography if your index finger needs a workout. film if you can't do any of the above. advertising if you're a . environment if you are really, really confused. and fine art if... well i won't go there.

    looking at your work, illustration looks like a no brainer. you can incorporate a lot of design in contemporary illustration/art. hell half the shit that comes out today is design driven/oriented.

    as for working while going to school. fine for night classes. potentially disastrous if you are going to school full time. it's kind of a paradox, on one hand you want to make money and pay for the damn thing, on the other you want to maxmize time and energy spent on school cause it costs so much in the first place! there was a star trek episode about this once i suggest you look it up.

    cheers!

    Thought I'd chime in, and say 'ello to all the other artcenter people.

    I go there... errr.. I took last term off. But I am comming back for term 5, which is frightening. I recognize some of your names, but some of you I don't know. Or perhaps I know you, I just didn't know you were on CA. Anyhoo, this seems like a good thread with alot of good information.

    `What sort of people live about here?' asked Alice.

    `In that direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, `lives a Hatter: and in that direction,' waving the other paw, `lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad.'

    `But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.

    `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here...

    This is hilarious.Especially advertisiment part.

    Anyway, what you said about going to AC full-time really worried me.I plan to get a part-time job when I start but do you guys really think it's pretty impossible to keep them both up?I dont want my grades to suffer because of my part-time work...maybe I should look up that star trek episode...

    Star Trek has so much wisdom.. it's the bible of my life!

    Oh, and Steve Kim is also full of wisdom. Wisdom and levity.. and a great butt, a true sage of our time!

    Yeah the whole part time job thing might be a problem. If you're going to have one you probably at least need to do the bare minimum in terms of class load. You'll be really surprised as to how much time you devote to homework even if you have a light load.. Art Center guilts you into feeling you should be doing work during every available moment.. it's like a long, monolith-on-its-side, overbearing spouse. Honestly, if you'd like to pick up cash you should look into working on campus, really its one of the only feasible ways.

    hmm...On campus jobs eh?Sounds good and reasonable, I should look into that.Thanks man.
    The bad thing is, I want to use Art Center's every opportunity to improve myself and I'm afraid of overburning (and becoming broke).Anyway I still have time to put together a nice workin schedule for myself.

    By the way does the Digital Painting night course still goes on?I remember reading somewhere about it, I hope it still goes on so I can finally get some serious help on my painter skills.
