sketchbook art

This isn't about lifestyle
Don't be blinded by the hype
This isn't about the Maybachs
And the mansions
The benjamins
Or the bling
As a matter of fact keep the icing
I wanna taste the cake

This is from a Jeremy Piven nba commercial, one of my favorite commercials of all time

Sweet home Chicago

So I interviewed at Beyond Design, a design consultancy that makes a wide range of great products.  The facility was incredible and Michael Prince, the president, was a really nice guy. So if all goes well I will have an internship in the fall.  Thanks to all who helped me get to this point and to Beyond Design for having me there.

Dual Major

So i officially have a dual major-Art Education.  I planned on getting a certificate when I got out of CCS, but I decide it would be easier (and a whole lot cheaper) to do it now, even if it is an extra year of studying.  
I can recall when I was in school how much of an influence my art teachers had on me.  The best teacher makes all the difference.  But I feel as a product designer that art teachers focus WAY too  much on crafts, illustration and fine arts.  I never once had a teacher tell me that I could design products.  There is the notion that one has to be a "starving artist" in order to even enjoy making art.  All of it is pure BS!
I hope that if I do one day decide to be an art teacher I let my students know THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STARVE TO BE AN ARTIST-THERE IS HOPE!! I hope to encourage them to explore more art careers than just fine arts and crafts.  I wish someone had told me about product design before I came here and I hope that if I do teach that my students have the realization I did when I cam to CCS; there is hope as an artist.
