    Dave, that is really nice! Like Jeff, I was expecting something in crayon from a 5 year old...

      Very nice work! Can she do my Cirrus?

      Best,
      Andy
      I'm sure that could be arranged. I'd have to check with her and get a couple pics to send her.

        Abby is 15. She certainly has some talent. She draws all the time. Sometimes difficult to get her away from it. She's in art school now and wants to continue.

          My daughter, almost 17, is an artist. Her favorite drawing style is Anime. Wants to study animation after high school (I think that's from playing too many computer games!)
          Universal has (or at least had) a digital animation school in Orlando. A buddy attended.

          He did not get a job in the industry, but he also was not willing to relocate to LA area. Which was seriously limiting.

            Last year, Nicole did something called "InkTober". It was on some website. For each day in October there was a single word. The challenge was to make an ink drawing each day based on that day's word. She really enjoyed that and came up with a lot of creative stuff.

              She has no interest in going out of town for college. We're looking at the local options.

                I'm in awe of their ability to visualize something and portray it in a work. When Abby was here, we went to the Art Museum in Fort Worth where they had a Monet exhibit. We could walk through and listen to a tape give us insight. All water lilies. As he became more impressionistic, less reality based. At one painting, the tape discussed how he tried to catch motion in his paintings. I was lost. She said they had been working on that in class. Oh well.

                  If I'd lived in a city where I could go to Vanderbilt I probably wouldn't have wanted to leave town to go to school either.

                    OK. This is not college. It a 1 year program on digital animation. Taught by a major studio.

                      A lot of art commentary is pure BS, IMO. (NICE job on the drawing.)

                      There was a "Non Sequitur" cartoon about a year ago, which I can't find right now. It's a guy in an art museum waxing enthusiastic about a large canvas of paint splotches while a small crowd listens. Off to one side, a security guard is saying to another, "I'll let him go another couple of minutes before I tell him it's the dropcloth from painting my living room last weekend."

                      Hate is a self-built dungeon in which a man imprisons his own soul.

                        Ray,
                        When I was an undergrad I faced considerable, enthusiastic pressure from the art historians in my college’s Art Department to move into Art History for my advanced degrees. They were wonderful, erudite folks, but I had the common courtesy to simply tell them I had my military commitment to fulfill rather than tell them how astonishingly pretentious and turgid I thought it all was. I learned a whole lot, and it’s served me well, but a career simply making up different descriptions of pieces, movements, trends, etc. just didn’t appeal to me.

                        OTOH, I was convinced that I was heading for an MFA in the theatre/film crafts, and that never happened, either.

                        Best,
                        Andy

                          Some of us are doers: historians more are reporters. I think I really hurt a Profs feelings when I didn’t go in that direction.
