Mermaids! For Snowboards! Yea!

My final 2d project. I was just having fun with these.

Anyways, I've kind of been neglecting my 100 themes challenge in lieu of trying to finish everything up for the school year. Basically everything is due this week. Bleh.

ALSO I'm a little unsure of what I want to do next year.
I want to go to LCAD, but my Dad is telling me I need to commit to a school and thus give up hope on Calarts. So it's either go to LCAD or stay at home and hope I get in. Which is not really a guarantee, especially because I find it more difficult to progress in my work without an artistic infrastructure around me. So...I don't know. I've been stuck on this for awhile now. I'm about 75% sure I'm going to go to LCAD. I will apply to Calarts no matter what, and if I get in, well, that can be another battle. If I don't, I can stay where I am and be happy, right?
It's just hard. I think LCAD will be a great school, but it's Cal fucking arts, pushing students to their fullest potential. You get to make a film every year. And all the fucking guest lectures! And all the companies that come just to Calarts, every year....sigh...I can't just forget about that so easily :/
BUT I do want to get on with my life, and start working hard and being in animation and stuff. Oh man, I am SO TERRIBLE at big decisions.


  1. you can always go to lcad for a year, and then apply somewhere else - calarts.....that way youre in a structured, artist friendly environment, and can decide if you even like animation. no use sitting around :)

  2. I really like these mermaids! nice!

  3. thanks ambar!

    and yea noam, that's what I want to do but since you can't transfer into most animation programs my dad wants me to choose a school and stick with it. He is helping me pay for all of it after all, so I am kind of obliged to listen to him.

  4. You could always attend community college it'll be cheap and you can get your associates until you get into calarts! Not to mention how cheap it'll be you can live at home and take classes and build up your portfolio for home.

    I know associates is no BFA but that'll give you 2 more tries to get into calarts and I know you can do it!
