Hai franzzzz! So it's been a little while since I wrote an actual personal journal entry
anyways, here are some stuff and things that are happening in the marvelous misadventures that are my days:I'm hunting for jobs!
That's pretty much a constant thing, but I've really been scouting heavily as of late of places to take my illustration expertise. My current internship is nearing its end (it was also unpaid XD) so that means moar freed up time for another job! I'm still a contract freelance illustrator for Laughing Dog artworks, but as you freelancers know, you need a couple gigs at a time to pay the bills. I'm being considered for an internship with ArtPrize (sadly, tis unpaid), but if I do get it, it will leave enough time for me to work too since it will span the summer and a few months into the fall. I applied for a paid internship to an organization that is partnered with the place I'm interning now, so I have a good chance with that. I also applied for a graduate assistantship that will begin in the fall, but I'm not sure if I'll get it so fingers crossed people!Gots lotsa shows coming up!
Yus, exhibitions errywhere
I've got work hanging in the painting department of my school to show off how good us graduate painters are, work in a graduate self portrait show called School Uniform,
work in the spring arthop (Art.Downtown), and eight pieces in the Grand Rapids Children's Museum until the end of June Painting my arse off!
I've not been so great with updating my gallery as frequently as usual, but I did a submission dump today lol. The painting I'm doing right now is very process oriented so I've got many pieces going on at once. Working on Queenie!
I've been working on Queenie believe it or not, but I've been working mainly on the storyline and where to take it after a certain point (no worries about where its at currently lol) I've simply not had the time to put pages together the way I was before, so the hiatus will continue most likely until my classes are over this semester. I'm going to San Francisco in August!
Wooo! My mom is graduating from college in May with a BA in criminology and sociology and she was invited to present one of her papers at the American Sociology Association's conference in San Francisco
It's a huge deal for her because she's getting a TON of agism in her program from her asshole professors, so this will offer a lot of self esteem for her and validation for her research interests (which have to do with race, the family, and social class). It'll be the first time I've ever flown in an airplane and the first time I've ever been to California
So what's going on with all you guys? Doing anything fun or cool soon? Got any summer plans? Getting ready for college?
