Be Positive

I finished all 12 pieces for my concentration part of my art 4 ap portfolio!!  The theme i chose for my drawings was something to help me get through a really rough few months.
It's about being positive.  After getting rejected from Calarts, i was devastated to say the least.  I had it in my head for a week I was a terrible artist and everything i worked hard for was all for nothing.  Basically i was questioning whether i was really destined to be an animator, I started to really doubt everything I was doing.  And then I couldn't go to my second choice college due to financial issues.  I am not one to fully believe in a God, but I thought that if there was a God he certainly used me as a punching bag.  That's not true though.. no matter how hard my life gets I always have my art to hold on to.  The college doesn't make the artist, the artist makes the college.  And even though I am going to my plan Z college choice, and it has the worst animation program I have ever seen, I am going to make the most of it and become better.  I will work harder than I ever have before to prove I can make it into Calarts.  So I chose the theme being positive to keep my chin up.  Now that i am finished i am more confident in myself and that I will keep improving everyday, even if i didn't get into the best college in the world.

Here they are, they go in a specific order because it sort of tells a story!  Enjoy :)



  1. How lovely picture series! And the message is great. :D
    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get into the college you wanted but like you said yourself: try to make most of it. Personally, I don't think the school is the matter, it's the talent and improving your skills all the time. :)

  2. Great work! I love the yoga illustration!
