First of all, my friend Yezi, Ringling grad like me, wrote a blog post about choosing art schools. It’s full of great insight on selecting an art school, Ringling, and the animation industry. If you’re looking at going to school for animation, it’s worth a read.
Secondly, I was thinking of writing an update post, but I’m probably not in the best mindset for it, so instead here’s a video of John Cleese talking about creativity. It cheered me up a bit today and maybe it will do the same for you.
