This is more or less the portfolio I submitted for my art schools of choice (PrattMWP, SCAD, MIAD). SCAD and PrattMWP each has a slideroom portfolio submission page; MIAD requires you to compress your files into a single .zip file and submit ONLY that file. MIAD is in Wisconsin (not my preferred state but oh wells) and I applied at the very last minute, just to try my luck at a possible bigger amount of merit scholarship. (Yes I'm desperate enough to do that, but anyway, I don't mind going to any of these 3 schools, although I really want to go to NYC, because ... it's freaking NYC.) One of the reasons I applied to MIAD was because of its luxurious apartment-style dorm which costs nearly the same as the puny dorm rooms at SCAD and Pratt.
I've always wanted to start a youtube channel and I believe I've filmed and deleted over 50 takes by now, just because I couldn't stop cringing at my awkwardness on screen. FINALLY, I have something legit to talk about on youtube—my portfolio! So! If you'd like me to make more art school videos, be sure to comment/like, and subscribe! Would really appreciate it.
There are a lot of design pieces in my portfolio, but I wasn't entirely worried about it because I did have some observational drawings, and the portfolio as a whole represents me as a person and my daily activities. However, if I were to redo and resubmit my art portfolio, I would have included more experimental pieces and some paintings.
There's still time for fall 2017 application to most art schools! Hope you make it in time.
Comment on what you'd like me to cover next. I will try my best to oblige, if I'm knowledgeable about that topic enough to write a min 1,000 word non-bullshit post! Sharing helps a lot as well!
Sign up for my mailing list for updates and big news! I promise on my eyebrows that I won't spam or send you bullshit stuff. I will send only the content I would love to receive myself.
