The registration process was smooth to say the least. It was the only time in my life when my choice of classes were not closed. I think the happiest moment was knowing that I did not have to take a history class, which I had been dreading every year and wimping out of it. The only thing to do now is find an internship and all will be well.

The internship department was helpful, but it was a bit useless. The college central website they gave me did not have much listings for my preferred interests. I did find some, but mostly aimed away from my major or were freelances. My friend was more helpful finding publishing companies for internships in editorial. However, some of the internships I found are close to the deadline. With that said, I have to go through all my old drawings/paintings and upload them as soon as possible.

Here are some of my old stuff from different classes in SVA:


My first attempt in gouache paint of last year in John Parks‘ gouache class. Worked from a photo.

Last year’s drawing class with Phil Jimenez.
unfinished oil painting from last year with Peter Fiore.
Gave it away as a present to my best friend. The hair was very fun to do.

I will put more up in another day. Finding my old stuff is more troublesome than I thought.





The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-1995

I currently finished reading Safe Area Gorazde: The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-1995, by Joe Sacco, for my Culture Survey class with Marilyn Palmeri. The interest at first was not that big, but after reading a couple of pages into it I really enjoyed it. A journalist, Joe Sacco interviewed the Muslims about Gorazde and through them he depicted the tragedies of war most of us didn’t know about. The art work itself is simply amazing and the storytelling is pretty mind blowing as well. I highly recommend it. I wish someday textbooks (history, science, math… etc) could be in comic book form so people like me could better grasp the material.
