In all honesty, going into this first semester of college as an art student, I didn’t think I would be any good. I saw so many people who were talented and amazing and had been doing art for years, where as I just doodled for the majority of my life, dropped it for a few years, and started drawing again last fall. If I thought I drew something decent, I would find someone else’s art that was tons better, and I would feel discouraged. Halfway into the semester I was seriously considering changing my major and dropping art altogether, because for as long as I’ve known, I’ve only be okay at something, not great or amazing.
These past few months in my art classes have been fun, I’ve been pushed to draw things and use different mediums that I never have before, and I feel like I’ve improved a lot. Take my drawings over the summer and compare them to now, I’d like to think that I’ve gotten better. After getting some of my projects back, I’m surprised that I’ve done better than I thought I would. To declare a BFA, I have to average a B in the 4 bottom art classes. In the beginning of the year, I was panicking, because I was so sure I would have to take a class over, or that I wouldn’t be able to make it. So far, though, I think I have a chance at it.
Not sure what I was trying to say, other than maybe becoming an animator isn’t that impossible for me. Not as much as it was a few months ago, anyway.
Does anyone remember the show ChalkZone? That had to be one of the coolest shows ever, I was so sad when it got cancelled. But it was awesome, I always thought the idea of the show was insane and had limitless creativity. Just the idea of everything that was ever drawn and erased came to life in another dimension, and whatever you drew in the ChalkZone would come to life or become something real. That was something I always wished I could do, just draw a different place on my chalkboard and whoosh! I’m on the other side of the world, in a different world, in a different universe, anywhere!
I could create anything and everything, and when I’m done for the day, I could just step back into my room.
