It's Official-I'm done!

Yep, it's true! I am finally done with school! I have officially graduated from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco this Saturday the 18th 0f December 2010! And it's only after four years of fall, spring and summer semesters since August of 2006. A lot of people have asked what it feels like... well... odd. The Academy doesn't do graduate ceremonies during the Fall graduates (lame). I think the reality will sink in once I: 1. get a job, 2. receive the most expensive piece of paper I've invested in- a.k.a. my diploma, and 3. realize that I don't ever have to go back but instead prove myself to people like the IRS that I am an artist professional and no longer just a student or some hobby artist. Woot! Professional world here I come! Praise God for getting me through these past four years.

Although I have not yet submitted this for my class, this is my final assignment for Bay Area Architecture, the Metreon, and is my last illustration for the Academy of Art University. This was done using Photoshop and Illustrator CS4.

New Self-Portrait (in progress #2)

Don't know when this thing is going to get finished with all of the projects I've got going on and preparations for graduation this December 18th (so soon! CRAZY!) and getting ready for long awaited returns and the upcoming holiday events. Needless to say it may be awhile before this is finished. Anyway, here is a snippet that worked out to be a nice profile pic in the meantime. Everything is done in Adobe Illustrator CS4. I really want and will eventually need the Adobe CS5 suite. Christmas present idea anyone... :)
