So it's September, and I'm at the end of the second week of school. I'm taking two art classes at school and am possibly going to be submitting stuff to the college board for AP Art.

Last friday I went to my first nude and my first post csssa figure drawing session at Emily Carr Institute ( It's different... in the sense that I don't feel the energy I felt when I was at csssa- so it's going to be a bit of a challenge. I think I'll continue to go and I'm also thinking of finding other places to go to.

Something that I'm really wanting to see is Body World 3 which is opening at Science World tomorrow. It's an exhibit with plastinated bodies (method developed by Gunther von Hagen) and body parts of once-living people. I'm hoping it will allow me to be more knowledgeable in terms of anatomy and I'm also wanting to do some drawing there... I have a feeling that it's going to be crowded though.

I haven't really watched any animation or movies for quite a while now, which is very strange because I usually watch atleast one movie a week. And ever since school started, I find myself with very little free time. That is also very odd because I really am not taking a lot of academic courses this year- in fact I have dropped both Literature and History (very tragic!).

I'm kind of glad that this is my last year of high school, but at the same time I'm woried about how little time I have to prepare for portfolios and applications... :( I really can't wait to escape the way high school functions though. The whole social structure, popularity, cliques, and so on. Though at the same time, who says that post-high school wouldn't contain some hint of that? Well- atleast I think it'll be better. I think.

Hopefully my next post will be far more exciting in terms of content and artwork!

OH my gosh!! Those are BEAUTIFUL Cindey!!
The last one with blue hair is my favorite! I'm taking figure drawing as well, and I agree that there certainly isn't that energy we all felt at csssa. And don't worry about after-highschool life. There's no trace of cliques, "higher" or "lower" grade levels, age groups don't matter, and, at least in junior college, you get a whole ton more of time. It's like csssa in atmosphere (although certainly not the same at all when it comes to people and classes) I only have four classes, two a day for four days of the week. You have something to look forward to, be it college, junior college, or even...sigh...CALARTS!!

ps did you get something in the mail?

wooooowww your drawings are pretty! i love the colors. Ive never drawn nude people either. i think it would be weirrrddd hahah.
i get depressed when i think about how much better csssa was than regular school. i felt like i was an adult there, but now i have to go back to doing chores and having to get rides from other people. i would SO rather hang out with you guys than my boring friends who dont draw and dont understand art. hahah are you applying to calarts right away?
