Hula!

So the Main Gallery show was a COMPLETE SUCCESS!  (Probably pictures to follow soon.)  I couldn't have done it without all the support and help of my amazing department and school and classmates.  I am constantly amazed at their love and the sense of community here at CalArts.

Also, I got what must be the most awesome thank you card ever....


It was signed by SO MANY PEOPLE!  I'll go ahead and spoil the mystery- I cried when I started reading it....  (I am not posting the inside, because I want to keep it for myself.)  Thank you so much to my stellar cubemate, Louise for making it for me and for tracking down the people to sign it.  Seriously, Louise- if you are reading this- that card means so much to me.  You may never know.

Been working on this for what feels like WEEKS!  Time to show off!

Now back to work- I mean...  I guess it's time to go to bed...  It's 4:30 in the morning!

MAJOR update

Well, this post won't be HUGE, but it is definitely an update.

I apologize once again for being super-quiet around here, but life has been crazy-insane-busy the last few weeks.

The big news is: for about five months now, in addition to my classes, homework, and jobs, I have been working with the Film/Video department/fighting with the Art department to secure the Character Animation Main Gallery show here on campus.  And I will sum up those five months by saying that things were NOT going well....  We organized a petition and have been collected signatures to ensure that this situation will NEVER happen again, but basically all hope for this year was lost.

Then today, we got the biggest news and the best we could have ever hoped for.  A space opened up and we have a show!  The Main Gallery show will be Feb. 11th- Feb. 18th, with a reception on Feb. 16th.  We are BEYOND thrilled and hope to make this show one to remember!

If you are a CalArts student now, or an alum, or just a friend somewhere in the nearby area- PLEASE swing by on the 16th to browse the work, get a free caricature drawn by one of the students and support us in our show.  Thanks!
