Long time...

It has been a while since I posted anything, but that doesn't mean I haven't been drawing alot! I just haven't really scanned anything. In fact, the amount of artwork I have been doing has increased over the last few months. I've also been taking a cartooning class at a local art school in my area. It has really helped me learn some basic fundamentals I've been lacking, get feedback on my work, and keep my motivated.

I've also made the decision to go back to school for animation and digital illustration and today I was officially accepted to William Paterson University's BFA program. While I don't really plan on completing the 99 credit program, I was able to make an arrangement with the dean of the college to allow me to take the course I want and have the prereqs waived. This will be great. I'll be able to take classes and learn the fundamentals and all the programs I need without having the take some ridiculous requirements. I will be taking them more as a continuing education students. If i want to go back and finish the requirements that will always be an option as well. Having a BA from the school and an MA helped. I am very excited to be going back to school, especially for something that I'm interested in. I really can't wait to start taking some of the digital art classes.
