First off, I would like to apologize for my inactivity from deviantART of late. I have been dealing with the responsibilities of full time college classes and a part time [30 hours a week] job. Needless to say, I've had my hands full.
I've learned a few things from my classes: I know more about Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, as well as Wordpress, thanks to my great professor and the projects I was fortunate to work on. I also got to do a bit of work in traditional mediums.
However, I missed a lot of class as I dealt with various personal obstacles, homelessness included, and my grades will surely suffer as a result. I also withdrew from one of my classes, due to concerns about the possibility of failure. My decision whether to continue my studies is in limbo at this point, pending the outcome of my grades. Even if I am to pass all of my remaining classes, I may have to retake some of them for purposes of meeting the GPA requirements set forth by the college and the art department, more specifically.
Despite challenges, I feel as if I have grown up quite a bit and realized the consequences of my actions in the real world. Spending time homeless humbled me considerably. I cannot express enough gratitude to the Salvation Army for the help they gave me.
Now, months later, I am stronger, more capable, and more ready for the challenges ahead. I just hope that I have earned the chance to continue forth and grow not just as an artist, but as an individual on this long journey.
Thank you all for coming along then, now, and for the path ahead.
PS: Happy Holidays! Spend time with the ones you love, stay safe, and keep the drinking down at those holiday parties!
By, the way... I know you were trying to avoid it...
I am a third year (junior) college student and art major. I attend Saint Cloud State University and have been going since the summer of 2011. I work with photography, traditional art, and digital art, specializing in anthro art. I create interesting art in all different genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the dA community. My goal is to become an accomplished artist. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be.
