CDA and Internship are over: Sadness.

So classes and internships are finally over.  It went by so fast.  I guess it's okay since now my summer can start for the next two weeks and then back to school :D. On another note, I went to the Orange Country Fair last weekend.  That was a lot of fun.  I even tried one of those nasty doughnut chicken sandwiches.  Never again.  I did get hypnotized there though. :) It's really trippy.  You're just so relaxed you don't care what they're telling you to do, haha.

So on to art stuff.  The internship was great.  I met a lot of awesome people and learned a lot.  I hope to keep in touch with everyone.  As a thank you gift, I made them these little felt birds as presents.  I hope they like them.  I even burnt my finger making them. :O 

Each little bird was different. :)  I also gave a piece of chocolate and my business card all wrapped up in a little goodie bag. :D

I also just found out I won a merit scholarship for Animation from my school :D  I just need to write a thank you letter and such now. Yay :) I also won grand prize for that contest I mentioned last post!  I couldn't believe it.  I really appreciate all the support I got from everyone.  It meant a lot to me. :)

Anywhat, so here's the final stuff I did for CDA:

Figure Invention:

And now Analytical Figure Drawing :D

And lastly Environment. :x

On the last day of class, I went to grab drinks and dinner with my teachers, so that was really fun. :)  I can't wait until next summer so I can take some more classes there.  That's it for now, bye! :D


  1. hey Alex! I esp love ur figure invention work! so creative! whenever i try doing design/story stuff, for some reason i never feel creative or inspired for some reason and it just falls flat. :(.

  2. Thanks Rena! When I get stuck, I find looking at art books or other artist's work really helpful. :) I also stay super loose and just try to play with shape and silhouette at first. I hope that helps!

  3. Your environments look good! I really like the first one, with the boat. The colors are well balanced and you have some nice shapes going on in the composition and lighting.

  4. Thanks Anna! For some reason a lot of people like that one over the others too. :x Thanks for the nice compliment! :D

  5. These are really neat! I also especially like those environments. :)

  6. Thanks Kevin! <3 I wonder if I should focus on environments. Hmm...

  7. Keep it up Alex! you can do it!

  8. Thanks so much Q! It was great meeting you at CDA. :) Keep in touch!
