Look what I did!
I've had an amazing, perfect summer.
I love my friends.
I'm leaving tomorrow for Brooklyn.
I'm so excited to go, but i'm terrified of leaving.
It's just going to be so insanely hard to say goodbye to my friends and parents. I've already been crying my eyes out and I haven't even really had to say bye to my best friends yet. It'll be okay though.
I love you all. :)

I'M GOING TO PRATT! Final decision, no regrets, no second guessing- it's my definite choice.
I loved Pratt when I went to visit on Monday. I loved the campus and the atmosphere and I just felt very comfortable there. Then on tuesday I went to RISD and, surprisingly, I didn't like it at all. Their foundation and illustration programs are great, but I just wasn't comfortable there. The people seemed very elitist and I don't know..it just wasn't for me. Plus I could never afford to go there anyway, so its good that I didn't like it. Yay Pratt!!
Wyatt and Shira are awesome and put my art up on Decibelle- go check it out http://decibelle.atspace.com

This is my first post on my lovely new computer. 'Tis an iBook, and (s)he needs a name! Any suggestions?
I got into Pratt!!!! I'm going to college! Now, even if no one else accepts me, I'm going to art school damn it! I got an e-mail from Pratt saying that they were missing my portfolio (even though it was already accepted at portfolio day and I wasn't supposed to send one in) so I called and the admissions guy was like "Hannah! I just found your portfolio and i'm looking at it right now! blah blah blah, you're all set!" and then he called back like..10 minutes later and told me I was accepted! weeee
Now I just have to apply to my other 5 schools...

Holy crap, i'm updating again? Crazy, huh?
I'm a self-proclaimed art hermit this weekend. I have to finish my RISD drawings so I can send in, and do another illustration for school. For my AP art concentration (12 pieces) I decided to do mythology illustrations- I just finished my first one...
( Pyramus and ThisbeCollapse )
I struggled with it at first but i'm pretty happy with it now. Any of you fabulous people have favorite mythology stories that you want me to illustrate? I think i'm going to do Icarus for my next one, but i'm not sure.
I've been battling it out with my artistic self a bit lately. I think that up until this point, i've focused solely on developing my technical skill instead of creativity. But now, with art school applications and all of that, I realized that I don't know how to be creative anymore. I can draw you anything you plop infront of me but I really struggle with coming up with my own ideas and communicating them well. Artists, musicians, mathematicians, any thoughts? I think that will be my goal for before I start college- learn how to be creative damn it!
Oh! Jason Webley was amazing. When we got there we were the only two people there (besides the people that worked at the venue) and it was really awkward and surreal, but after an hour or so there were about 20ish people there and Jason did his thing. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures (I was too distracted by his awesomeness) but yeah, it was great. I hope I get to see him again sometime.
Well, i'm going to go work on my last RISD drawing (interior space!). Bye my lovelies!

After you die...
After death, you will exist as a guardian angel in order to protect your still-living loved ones. You might even inspire a classic Christmas movie.

I applied to Pratt today! Yay! One down, five more to go.
Jason Webley show on Wednesday! wee
I like Egon Schiele. A lot. Bordering on obsession.
I've been trying to write my college essay for days now but i'm still staring a blank screen/page. I never have trouble starting papers...its usually my favorite part. I think it's just that the "this has to be good or else your future is ruined!" thought won't leave me alone.
Jason Webley is coming to the Space in Portland on February 1st!!! Holy fuck i'm exicted! Who wants to come??
I love my LCLSMBFF
(And my original SMBFF of course)

My Jewmas vacation was great. New Years was great. Going back to school and college stuff is not great. That is the current state of Hannah

Today, I finally finished up my left over work from last year when I was sick. What an incredible relief.
I've been really happy lately, even with all the college stress and everything that goes along with that. I'm just very content. This past weekend I went to Boston for National Portfolio Review and got to see lots of my MeCA friends which, as always, was lovely. I met with RISD, Pratt, and MassArt. The RISD rep was really really nice. She loved my paintings and figure work and just made me feel a little bit better about my miniscule chances of actually getting in. Pratt accepted my portfolio on the spot so now I don't have to worry about that at all when I apply! And MassArt gave me some really good feedback on each of my pieces, and she said I'd be a perfect fit for art school. It was a really encouraging experience and I'm really glad I went.
Backtrack- the Dolls show last weekend was beautiful and just amazing in general. Jessie and I got to be brides up on the balcony above the stage during Perfect Fit and crazy beat-up cheerleaders running through the crowds during Girl Anachronism. Everyone was really nice and it was definitely the best first real Dolls show experience I could ask for. Go here for Jessie's pictures. She was a beautiful statue :-) Her friend Adam took some videos too and once they get screen shots I'll post them.
To close, here's a lovely picture of me and Max that Drew took at Meca. Its in the early college catalog which is kind of creepy, considering it takes up a whole page and it's of me sleeping, but atleast I have a copy now!
