I finished my graduate school applications and ended up applying to four different places. I struggled for a while with my artist’s statement, but received some great feedback from my brother and Dad — so thanks you two! Also, thanks to my gorgeous Angie for all your support too (and for watching the Brother’s Quay with me)!
Anyway, Angie and I are moving again tomorrow (*groan*), so I probably won’t be posting anything until the end of next week. See you all soon.
Also, above is a drawing of my brother. I drew this some years ago in a medical school morgue surrounded by cadavers. I had the brilliant idea for a painting and somehow managed to convince my poor brother Allister to sit in the morgue with me whilst I drew him as part of a study for my planned masterpiece.
Congratulations for finishing your school applications…that’s a rough job. Where did you apply?
I also like the Brothers Quay. Have you seen Jan Svankmajer ‘s version of Alice in Wonderland? It’s called “Alice.” You might like it if you’re a Quay fan.
Good luck with the move.
I found you via the Drawn! forums; your RSS feeds seem to broken. I’d like to stalk you from afar if you could get that fixed up. I really like your work.
Good luck with the move! I love this drawing!
Cadavers–that surprises me ;)
(I hope I didn’t submit this 20 times–I didn’t realize the code thing was case-sensitive)
Ron — Hello there! Thanks for the congrats and yes it was sort of a lot of work to apply to four seperate places, but it was fun too to see everything come together. I applied to CalArts, UCLA, SVA and SCAD…so we’ll see what happens.
No, I haven’t seen any Jan Svankmajer’s animations, but would really like to…perhaps we can get it from flikr…our saviour here in the bleak midwest. Thanks again for your continued support and it is always great to see you here.
Lindsey — You again :) Thanks for the wish of luck. Yes, the whole thing with the cadavers was many moons ago. I like your cherries ;P
