tomorrow for animation we are going on a feild trip to SJSU to meet jeffrey katzenberg. my high school class gets to sit in the front row and ask questions with all the college students. exciting!
even though hes not an animator or anything its still cool that he started dreamworks with spielberg. i want to watch monster house again.
im gonna go play zelda :)
i just got back from watching harry potter. midnight showing was pretty amazing. i got in line around 740 with aly. we sat and played DS with about 20 other people in line the whole time. Parents had work and it was too late for kids, so everyone there was around my age. we were all picto chatting and playing mario bros. and mario kart. i kicked butt in mario kart and i heard random people yelling "who the hell is jackehh!?" :) pretty fun.
i ended up sitting next to andre and Aly in the theater. we were doing weird hand snake tricks.
So the movie was awesome. they cut out alot like always, but most of my favorite parts were there. since i just read the book last week i could point out everything they changed. There were alot of funny parts, and the audience kept clapping. There were parts where everything was serious, but aly and i found something funny about it and started cracking up. it was fun :)
cant wait until the midnight party for Deathly Hallows.
Now since i have sound on my computer ive been listening to a lot of new music. i love meg and dia! two girls almost my age who started a band and are touring the US. Their songs are inspired by famous books like the great gadsby, catcher in the rye, and a lot of old british books. The singer Meg has a really unique voice. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ifgVwCfh6YI
well its already 4 and i should go to sleep.
ps. happy belated 1st anneversary of CSSSA 2006 aka best summer of our lives. :)
yaaayyyy! i finally overcame my artists block yesterday :) and now that its summer i can draw alll dayyyy :D
i got an application to micheals, i dont know if i really want to work yet though. i need to make more money for the people to people group so i can hopefully travel to austrailia (or europe) next summer.
i still have a dilemna for what colleges i should apply to. im still iffy about animation, i dont know if im cut out for that. im more of an illustration person. for sure im applying to calarts (for character animation and fine arts) and to laguna beach for illustration. maybe a couple of art colleges in san francisco since there are like 50 there.
i want to go to the rennaisance faire this year. maybe they will have pirate day again so i can buy things for my collection :)
heres a drawing i did last night that kept me up until 3 coloring. i didnt scan the colored version yet though.
school is almost out! three more days. i have finals for the last days of school blehhh
well now that its over and my grades are pretty good, i can draw! alot! :D next week im going to pismo beach, the best place in the world, for a few days. i need to go surfing more. maybe i will buy a cheap board somewhere. and since my mom will be working i can walk around the pier and draw people! woo :)
this summer i am planning on running every day. how fun. i need to get in shape if i want to do waterpolo next year. i am also going to learn how to skateboard (which was postponed last summer because i broke my toe) and i am going to get a job. probably at AMC or michaels.
yesterday i went to the beach with a whole bunch of people. it was so fun. the weather was nice, i got burnt, went booooogie boarding, and played volleyball. but there was a dead seal :(
im going to try and get my animation class to go on a field trip to the next sketch crawl in san francisco. even though its during the summer. sounds like fuuunnnnnnn.
well i guess ill update on my art. i havent been drawing much because im focusing on grades and my computer broke :(
so i havent posted anything in here since december so i guess ill update :D
i got bad grades last semester :( well, a D in english which is retarded. i think im just going to end up going to evergreen jc and transfering to SJSU :\ they have a pretty good animation program (but theyre no calarts) and i hear they have a world renown figure drawing teacher teaching there. i hopt hes still there by the time i get there. i really need to start taking a figure drawing class SOMEWHERE. maybe at evergreen if i can get a ride.
Well a few weeks ago i entered this marine life contest. they will announce the results next month. and i am also painting a poster for the cesar chaves contest. its due the 26th. i have one week of school until winter break. when i am GOING TO HAWAII!!! :D hahah then the next week is my birthday yayy :)
ive started another business making wallets. i posted a picture of my most recent ones. visit my deviantart or myspace for details :D
ill post some of my recent drawings... orr crafts haha. The maquette is a project from animation last year. i never finished it cause i got mad when someone ripped off the arm. and her legs are too short. There is also the paper mache dinosaur from class, and the portrait of keiraknightley done in acrylic. it was my first time painting on canvas and everything! it was fun haha.
