Monte Bello

Yesterday I went to the Monte Bello Space Preserve in Palo Alto with my classmates to go plein air painting. It was a difference experience and I struggled a lot with the whole process. This reminded me in general that I needed to take it one step it at time. BABY STEPS!! Patience, persistence, and passion come a long way.

Folo folo olie-o

So after months of planning and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, here is the portfolio I submitted for the Animation/Illustration program! Thanks to Cody, Kristina, Craig, Kim and a few others at the peer review for critiquing my work! I feel grateful for having gotten solid and golden advice from you guys in terms of design decisions, and selection of artwork. Thanks to my close friends for tearing my personal statement apart like no other. YOU GUYS KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! DIG DEEP*** XD hahaha.... It made me realize and remind myself why I wanted to do this in the first place, despite going though some tough times this year. I still have a long way to go and I'm looking forward to what the program will bring me if I get accepted! :)

It's 2 o'clock and I'm still up. I'm up and wondering how many hours I've wasted over the couple of weeks. Not really. I'm sure those hours that I did waste were meant for something more :). The portfolio deadline is getting nearer by the hour! I have compiled everything that I want in my portfolio, so no worries! Now I just need to tweak my layout and get it printed by Wednesday afternoon. My personal statement however, needs reworking after some of my friends tore it part. I need to dig deeper! SHOW THEM MORE OF PETER LE. But yes...the stress... I didn't apply to any Universities or Private Art schools for college, so it's my first time really experiencing this kind of pressure. To create a professional portfolio exhibiting the best of your and seeing if they think you're good enough?! geez. XD...well well, only time will tell soon!
