bohemienne-savant asked: Did you go to UCSD? If so, how did like it? I'm a Art- emphasis in graphic design- major looking to transfer soon. Any info is appreciated!
This is a comic I made during my last year at UCSD, it was published in the school newspaper.
I had a love/hate relationship with UCSD’s Art Program. They were very theoretical in nature, and don’t walk you though workflows or creative programs very thoroughly. If I hadn’t come in with trade based Community College art courses under my belt I would have had no foundation to stand on. However, without it’s very theoretical courses, I might have become less well-rounded in mentality, and medium.
Don’t rely on the classroom to teach you everything.
That being said I still had a life-changing experience for many reasons including:
• I had multiple internships I got through school.
• I was the cartoonist for UCSD’s Guardian Newspaper.
• Exposure to a wide array of interesting people.
• Art homework while strange, in retrospect helped me become more than just an illustrator introducing me to a wide array of mediums.
Like any other degree, an Art Degree is only as good as the effort you put inside and outside the classroom.
