My last quarter at SCAD is about to commence and I don't feel anymore ready for anything. I quite enjoy school, except for the 30% of it that is complete bullshit. I've taken math, speech, intro to design classes that taught me how to hold pencils, and I still have a few to go as I'm taking Intro to Anthropology this fall. Due to all these classes that I supposedly needed to fit the accreditation of the school I missed out on classes that would have been extremely useful and was looking forward to. In one case they actually fired the teacher and didn't replace him with anyone even close to his pedigree.

My degree does not earn me anything, most people in the rest of the world don't even understand what skills go into sequential art. I usually just say I'm an illustrator, because technically it's true but it also takes less explanation and people have some idea of what that is thanks to familiar names like Rockwell. In theory I could do storyboarding, but without a portfolio to show that specific skill in that specific format I once again am not likely to convince anyone.

I know many people that either just graduated or will soon do so and very few have found jobs in the field, no matter their level of talent. SCAD boasts a 91% employment level but they don't boast about what degree these lucky folks earned, or how much they earn at these prestigious positions. There is a large difference between a degree that has a clear path to a job and degrees like mine that relies exclusively on how much of a go getter you are. The only class I took that was at all about some clear goals was in the Illustration department. Sequential students are basically taught technical skills and told to be timely and nice, but you better be driven or have a specific passion in mind to get anywhere near the next step.

So I'm trying to do something, it's not glamorous and there is more chance of losing money than making it, but it's something I want to do and it give me a chance to see if I can engage people with an idea. I don't want to talk about it too much, not that I'm superstitious, but there is an element of talking more than doing that can fuck you over. If the project starts coming together I will post about it on my blog… Within a month there should be some signs of success or a failure to engage on my part.

But now it's time to draw a thirsty priest ;)

Thanks, I dig yours too, interesting approach, everything is just slightly distorted and in some cases it's hard to tell what exactly is going on.
