1, how was the art school thing 2, are you gonna draw stussy?
awww thank u for asking anouk <3
so…i got accepted, the interview lasted an hour and a half, i already toured the place last week and knew who i was going to talk to, and the second director talked to me a bit and seemed to have much more positive energy than the one who was going to interview me ahah but basically
it was an hour of critique of course but just saying how “maniered” my style was how he was worried how it would render in a comic “have you ever seen a train?” “did you sketch these places at night with no people in it?” and in the few comic pages i brought, that i thought had to develop a very complex idea to give a preview of how far it could go, where “completely unreadable and incomprehensible” the concept must have been “fucked” since the start to give such a flawed result, too much at once
and i absolutely cannot remember a single positive comment and was basically experiencing the mist of indifference by this point continuously smiling and joking, that who would represent poison in a scorpion instead of a spider?! indeed, that is a very big problem (that i was completely aware of and terribly worried about, every comment, i had expected it and it indeed came up) it completely went over me to remotely defend myself i explained sure but aside from that none, going on about a girl who tried an animation school right after and completely failed on a point going on about how he would rather have someone who draws less well but narrative wise way stronger, even if people fail they will still finish the programme are you parents alright with such a job ect (it’s not free too)
and then he goes “of course, we want you” and brings the papers
i couldn’t even leave feeling relieved on the moment because it was a lot to take in lolol but i’ll “weigh the pros and cons” but yeah!
