what is so awful about the administration?

yoyonaki:

ninjies:

i, and a lot of other students, disagree with how the illustration major is run. illustration students make up a third of the entire student body, which is ludicrous. they intentionally let in people who aren’t good so that they can make more money. i’ve spoken with teachers who are in charge of reviewing entrance portfolios and they are shocked at the skill level of some people they have to allow in. classes are woefully overcrowded as a result and a lot of people (ME) can’t get into required classes. the advice from administration is “try again next term”. illustration is used as a cash cow for the rest of the school. we don’t even have our own work spaces. they built some “homeroom” thing, but it’s 15 minutes away on another campus and you have to pay to use it, and afaik there’s no place to actually work, just couches and stuff. no one i know has actually been there.

when we bring up these concerns, we’re told to “not be critical” and “not raise a fuss”. but at $18,000 a term we are not getting adequate resources compared to the other majors. transportation design gets their own room, couches, and cintiq monitors. entertainment design gets their own room that you need a card to enter, cintiq monitors, AND A FRIDGE. when we asked for something similar, they told us to go outside and work there. the core problem is that they let in waaaaaaay too many illustration students, and then they don’t have the space/funding to accommodate us. on term it typically takes 1-2 hours to meet with an adviser to get one question answered or get one form signed because we have ONE ADVISER. stuff like that. the teachers speak out but nothing changes. students speak out and we’re told to be quiet. it’s really disheartening.

I have to agree with the fact that this is all true (because hello Art Center Student studying illustration)….and let me add my frustration with my school:

I’m angry by the fact that they give to scholarships to students WHO DOES NOT TAKE ART SERIOUSLY…because I’ve seen a lot of first term students not giving any shit with their school works and fooling around. I remember this one girl and idk how the hell she got into Art Center because she cannot draw a fucking head (btw a lot of students come in with average drawing skills but this girl cannot draw at all).

That bring up the new campus. I go to the campus three times a week because let’s be honest, its a real good working environment (there’s a cintiq lab, homeroom, and less people)….but the con: you have to pay fucking $25 for key card access like oh c’mon…..we’re almost paying 18k and I still need to pay $25…..for key card access.

btw tuition used to be 15k when I came into Art Center. Plus Art Center needs to stop buying stupid shit like what monitors in every wall at school to show current activities/news…really we need new desks and easels…

goliosi:

be nice to your art. Almost all artists have this irrational fear that other people will judge us if we take pride in what we draw.

You might not be as talented as you want to or anywhere near someone else’s level, but that doesn’t mean you have to blame your art. And lets be real:…

I spent my two-hour layover mourning the two halves of my Ovation. Help me save others from the same fate!

SIGNAL BOOST. I honestly didn’t know this.

See, I was planning on taking a trip out west to visit a friend, and bringing my guitar along. So to whoever submitted this? THANK YOU. You just saved me from having to mourn mine snapping.
I’m so sorry about your guitar, though :(

Moving to the uk next February definitely useful or my fiddle.

I want to let people know about this app, especially for those people who suffer from social anxiety where telephone communications might be triggering or uncomfortable.
It’s called “TalkTo” and is available for iOs devices for FREE here and is also available in Google Play for Android devices! Essentially, it allows you to ask businesses questions by sending a text message instead of calling. For businesses that aren’t set up to answer a text message or an email (it will try to send it either way) a TalkTo agent will make the call FOR you, and then will text you back with the company’s response.
I have used this app to make reservations, check for stock, check store hours, and more. Certain businesses will have a higher response time than others but if you ask ahead of time then you won’t have a problem. I sent a restaurant a question this afternoon (see picture) and i had a response within 15 minutes. 
Give it a try!

OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS MEANT FOR ME


WHAT!!! WHAT

Perfect.

OH GOODNESS GRACIOUS PRAISE SWEET FANCY JESUS IN MANGER WITH MARY PLEASE GOD LET THIS BE REAL

Manga Studio on sale for $18 on Amazon again!

frenden:

Manga Studio five is $18.99 right now on Amazon again.

Last time I posted about this, they went quick. I know a few folks missed out, so I figured it was worth the heads up!

Manga Studio 5 is like a mix of Painter, SAI, and Photoshop. It’s my favorite app to make art…

Hi guys. we need to have a serious chat right now.

the-fury-of-a-time-lord:

Two years ago, there was a movie called Paranorman.

image

It didn’t do so good at the box office, despite it being one of the most important, game changing animated movies since the Disney renaissance. It made its money back, but it wasn’t the smash hit Frozen was.

And this is a fucking tragedy.
