LIfe at SCAD

Hey everyone,

It's time for a way overdue update. As some of you know I'm currently attending SCAD for my graduate program. Around 2 weeks ago i finished my first quarter there and I gotta say I loved it. This was my first time living on my own (minus the roomates). It felt good being on my own and getting more responsabilities (sounds weird, I know!)

I went to SCAD for the Sequentail Arts program to learn some of the foundations I still feel I need to learn and I gotta say it wasn't a waste. I felt I learned a lot in this quarter. I now just need to find time and put to practice what I learned. The school is full of wonderful resources even comic book library!

There were also activities like the comic arts forum, where professionals in the industry came to give advice, portfolio reviews and workshops. Legends like Mark Schultz were present at the activity. I got the opportunity to be reviewed by Marvel Artist Paolo Rivera and SCAD Alumni Robert Atkins (G.I. Joe). Getting that review was one of the most insightful things of all quarter. Robert had a ful bag of tips and advice and of top of all he's one heck of a guy.

Overall, my first quarter was a successful one.

I also had some upgrades in my work space.

A bigger table is always a plus. If you guys are interested in the stuff I was able to do during the semester check out my DA gallery regularly for updates.

I'll be going back to Savannah at the beginning of January to start my next quarter. Currently I'm working on some stuff. I'll be keeping you guys updated.

Take Care,
