Good morning, its about 6:30 am and I'm already on my second cup of coffee--it seems like its going to be a million cup of coffee kind of day! If you've been following this blog for a while now you might have noticed that its gone dormant in the last few months --years-- I'm sorry, that wasn't my intent but I was transitioning from a post-undergrad struggling to find a way to make a living in art into a graduate student attempting to pursue a rigorous animation program, work full time and maintain my sanity--the jury is still out on whether or not that's been a success.
I'm in my last year of graduate school (hopefully) and trying my best to learn, understand and practice animation. I've come a long way over the last five years (I'm part time) but as is the purpose of graduate school--I never feel like I've come quite far enough, given quite enough time or quite grasped the concepts. This blog is going to serve going forward a place to collect my thoughts on animation process, practice and films in general as well as a look into the life of a working grad student--a reality that is becoming so much more commonplace as schools develop programs that make doing both easier but 'real life' never seems to want to cooperate.
In addition to needing a place to put my animation thoughts I was also inspired by a fellow artist/designer looking to find her place in the art world--Anne-- I love reading her blog and seeing how she navigates her transition into designer. Also the lettering is beautiful and something I'd aspire to if I had that kind of patience.
