Memory Lane






Here is a sample of my sketchbook from 4 years ago, when I had just finished Art Fundamentals @ Sheridan, and had been accepted into the BAAA for the first time. I had barely made it past the cut with my portfolio, scoring 1 mark above the cut off point, and I think that had I not made it in back then I would have quit drawing altogether. The room drawing, IS my room drawing from that portfolio!

Anyways, Im posting these up, because a friend of mine, Adam Hines, thought it would be cool if I showed stuff I did from the year him and I were in Fundies. I would heartily recommend the Art fundamentals program to anyone thinking about taking animation or illustration while in high school. The program kicked my ass, and I am ever so grateful, as it taught my peers and I, tons.

Taj, I will probably just keep on keeping on. I'm working part time as a cook to pay the bills.

Nathan, I agree completely. Its amazing to see whats being produced by the people from that year these days. Great work abound.

Andrew, the Batman double spread was so bad I had to put it up! I couldn't deny others the pleasure of laughing at that. :D

I love spidey's anatomy in the 3rd pic! Still way better than I was. I got 15 points below the cutoff. Take that, Nathan! If I didn't appeal, I'd probably be at Algonquin College right now.
But yeah, the improvements of everyone are pretty amazing. It's nice to see all that hard work and tuition is paying off. I for one, can't wait till september.
