Shy girls who suddenly know how to use their hips when they dance are my kryptonite

Guys, I think a lot of you misunderstood my “nervous about a career in animation” comic! My teacher for that class, the mustache guy in the comic, is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and he told it like it really is: it’s tough, and you have to be tough to make it. I needed to hear that, because if I tell that to myself I go “hA, IT CANT HAPPEN TO ME!” and go on living in my world of endless optimism, simply because I wasn’t able to accept the hard truth before I heard it from someone who knows the industry and has been in it for many years. I have the utmost respect for my teacher, and he is candid and helpful and intelligent in so many ways. I was not casting him as a villain, and he was not berating me in the comic. That was something he said to his entire class.

Additionally, I came to this animation camp to find out where I stand with animation. I’ve always had a fairly even split between animation and illustration and now that I’ve been to this camp and actually had some experience with animation, I realize that 3D animation isn’t for me, and that I LOVE 2D and illustration. It’s been a learning experience, and I’m glad I figured this out before I paid tens of thousands of dollars for real college.

While all your encouraging comments are wonderful and really sweet, I have faith that I am capable of whatever I apply myself to, and now it’s just a matter of figuring out what’s best for me. Thank you for your kind words, and if you stick around here you’ll see where I am in a few years as it happens :)

It’s almost like your body gives you signals so you know when you’re dehydrated!

I don’t know if I’ll be back by midnight, so this is a place holder comic until I get back. I’ll be damned if I don’t get the ice cream at the end of this line through

Sand is nature, and yet

It’s so humid here the towels never dry after you get them wet and your bed feels damp when you go to sleep. But art is here so

To all you guys who asked how animation camp is going, I’m feeling a *teensy* bit stressed about the way my career is headed

❝ What do you have to get up so early for? ❞

I was driving 6 hours to animation camp, just to get there really early because my dad had a flight to catch before my stuff even starts ^^;

I can hear the trolleys and the seagulls from my room and I’m sO EXCITED

❝ Can we use your 'FOR ART' picture as a reaction picture because that is literally the best thing ❞
