with 13 comments

Some days I don’t really know what it is I want. I burned my hand fairly badly yesterday; I can confidently say that I never want that again.

Oh, and for the curious:

  1. Art School: Been there, done that. I hated critique days. All you needed was one idiot who kissed up to the professor to shoot down everyone else’s ideas. I’m glad it’s over. Now you have clients who do the same…sigh.

  2. Oh!!!! and how is your hand? Get some aloe. Works wonders.

  3. Hand is doing better after keeping it under a cool, damp towel last night. Some light red marks and still a little sore to touch, but should be fine in another day or two. Like critique days, not fun.

  4. Playing with matches again I see. Art for me is something I can only create with a camera. I seem to have an eye for nice photos, but nothing good enough to get me into an art gallery.

  5. Hot chocolate will, most likely, be the death of me.

  7. Oh Biff, you’ll never get to be a hand model if you keep mutilating your hands. Without going to an “official” art school, couldn’t you take some art classes at Montclair or a community college? For fun? Without a grade?

  8. I’ve thought about it. Even received some literature in the mail. It’s a possibility.

    Sounds like an interesting place. I’d be willing to take some classes here as well (when funding permits).

  10. Montclair Adult school has some great classes with fantastic teachers. (It being an artsy fartsy community and all.) I’m planning on taking a writing or sketching course, when I fininsh with grad school (if ever.)

  11. It’s weird, a few of my favorite webcomic artists have either not gone to college at all, or have gone for graphic design and or web design. Just something to think about. None of them have gone to “Art” school and I think the reason is most of those people look down on us lower peoples who think comics can be art, just not their art. Which brings up my second point; I strongly dislike art and the artists who make and fawn over their own pieces.

  12. There’s an exhibition at the Montclair Art Museum on “comic book ” art right now!!!

  13. I didn’t know what I wanted either.. And that’s how i spent $11,000 on a Graphic Design diploma that I never use. To be fair half of that was the cost of living in dirty student accomodation while I studied…
