Hey world. Want to know what I've been up to? Doing game design for slot machines for one. It's actually pretty cool. UI is so fascinating to me. Also I've been getting acquainted with things like combustion. -And the secret to winning - there is none, so don't even bother asking. I participated in the character design of the game, DIETVILLE. www.dietville.com Check it out. Otherwise, work keeps me super busy. I need to find more time for me and my own work. Ok! Carry on.

Year in Review...
Found out a show I worked on for a studio won an Emmy. Worked at a graphic design firm, and have Easter bunnies for Hershey Chocolate coming out. Had a comic published for a little bit. After getting laid off, been working on my pitches, have to meet a friend for dinner to talk show pitches, and working retail to make ends meet so I can get into my field. What a year.

Hi! Thanks for the question! So bear with me, I'm going to give you the most honest answer I can give you. Yes, I am working in my field of study, but it's taken a long time for me to get there.

Honestly, it's a good school, and you really do get out of it what you put in. I loved going there and have grown a lot as an artist and person there. The great thing is that they let you focus more on the foundations in art more than schools like Temple or Kutztown.

The only thing is that with the way our economy is now a days, you really need to know what you want to do and if it will secure you a job. The school is fantastic in that it teaches you solid foundations, but then when it comes to after school, there's how can you get work.

While looking at art schools, let me throw something for you to ask yourself:

-Does the major I want have good job prospects? (Ie, animation, graphic design & multimedia are pretty decent)

-How much can you handle deadlines? Do you burn out easily?

-Can you handle TOUGH criticism and feedback? You will need a thick skin for teachers and clients/bosses once you get out into the field.

-Do you love the field enough to move out to another state for work?

-Do you have enough drive and tenacity to get work even if it means living at home/on a next to nothing budget?

If it's not, as much as I love to encourage people to follow what they love, keep your options open. If you are interested in things like glass work, jewelry and pottery, I strongly suggest you have a plan for after school for getting a job. Otherwise, I would say look at a "Plan B" where you have a major you know you can get work in, but still can have your free time for your art.

I hope I've been able to give some honest feedback. My family always told me to keep a "Plan B." Good luck, keep your chin up, and keep doing art whether or not it pans out. :)

Well, I know I'm showing my age here, but I don't know where most of that stuff is anymore. I applied to them 10 years ago, graduated in 06. It's a challenge, but honestly, you get what you put into your work there. If you work hard, you'll get places. If you slack, you drop out, and my animation class started with 31 people, and graduated with 14. The ones who worked hard are now are working in the field one way or another.

My best advice is to show a little bit of everything you do. Sketches, sculpture, painting, and fleshed out drawings. Also, if you can, go and find where you can do figure drawing. You can add maybe one or two of your photoshop pieces, animation but no more than that. Also draw as much and as often as you can of real life. It really improves anyone's drawings by leaps and bounds.

Also, if the Scholastic program is still around, definitely submit work!
