I played with your heart/forgot to update.
Aw. WELL, scintillating and horrifying news.
1. Visited CCA--animation department looks really disappointing, but everything else about the school is magnificent, including their illustration department.
2. CalArts sent me their financial aid offer. I got relatively a lot, I think, but their whole offer (loans, scholarships, work study, etc.) was still less than the scholarship alone from CCA.
3. Going to visit CalArts/be a tourist in LA tomorrow and Saturday. Hopefully that will help me make up my mind.
Gosh, I dunno. I'd really like to major in animation--but I've always liked illustration too. At this point, it's like this:
OPTION ONE. CCA, illustration, virtually free education, amazing place to live (San Francisco!!), large & diverse school with tons of majors and flexibility.
OPTION TWO. CalArts, animation, somewhat stressful financial situation, alright place to live (Valencia..) near a much cooler place (LA!!), smaller & more specialized school with more focus on fewer majors.
I don't know what to do. Sob sob sob, the end.
I'll just give you some more drawings now to make up for my lack of posting lately.
So, like, what do I do?
