Thursday unleashed the epic hysteria that is class sign-ups. Mass crowding as everyone battled for a teacher's signature into a prized class. It was a sight to see. Anyhow, I got into all the classes I wanted(obviously classes like animation, life-drawing, story, and sound were already registered). Here's my pretty decent schedule:
|BEGINNING CHARACTER DESIGN||Silver, Steve||W 7pm to 10pm|
|INTERMEDIATE TRAD ANIMATION||Zikry, Jeffrey||Th 7pm to 10pm|
|INTERMEDIATE COMPUTER ANIMATION||Jones, Bill||T 7pm to 10pm|
|INTRO TO SOUND DESIGN||Huff, Ben||M 9am to 12 Noon|
|INTERMEDIATE STORY DEVELOPMENT||Hull, Jim||M 7pm to 10pm|
|LIFE DRAWING||Eckert, Bill||F 9am to 4pm|
|AFRICAN & AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSIC/LIT||Smith, Leo||M 2:10pm to 4pm|
Can absolutely NOT wait until the Character Design class! :) And of course eager to get back on the animation wagon and get back to fixing both my 2D and 3D assignments from last semester.
So time for a briefing on this here gallery work I've been mentioning. Every year there's an exhibit specifically spotlighting the student work within the character animation department at CalArts. Anyone within the department can voluntarily sign-up and have the opportunity to show any of their work to the school/industry. I was way too intimidated last year to participate and ended up regretting it big-time. This year however, while still extremely intimidated---I'm biting the bullet and participating. While I was home over break, I got a little too caught up with "down-time" and managed to forget about preparing some pieces for the show. No harm though, I actually figured out a perfect theme that I was already working on: observational sketches! So I've been cleaning up my people studies from both Kauai and the local Oregon Mall, along with doing a smaller theme that involves that quirky squirrel I posted earlier. The animators are taking over the gallery walls this coming Saturday--look out world!
This little Oregonian will be present next week. She was like a triangle with a giant styrofoam ball squished on top--and a Target customer to boot! The hair to face ratio was brilliantly skewed. Oh Oregon Food Court, you never fail me.:)
Psst---CalArtians! The countdown begins: 98 days! AH!
