Today was the Sidewalk Arts Festival. We had three hours to work, and only one box of mega chalk, but I had lots of fun. I think everyone that lived in Savannah came through the park, and there was lots of cool sidewalk art to see. I made an underwater forest, complete with mermaids, and somehow was unable to get one straight, shadow-free picture from it, but it'll be gone by tomorrow, so it's alright. It really was a really fun experience. Even though I didn't win any of the awards, a lot of passersby complemented my work, and took pictures, so I consider it a success.
And here are some detail shots.
Everyone should first: stay inside during this awful severe storm system, then second: when it's all bright and sunny this weekend, come on out to Forsyth park for the Sidewalk Arts Festival! I shall be at square 88, not a particularly resonant number, but it's double digits at least. I'm going for a nature theme, or at least I hope to. I can't really be sure until I see what color chalks they are providing for us to use. I'm considering sneaking some pastels in my pocket. Come on out and see all the fabulous artwork, most of which will be done by the illustration students, cause we rock!
So, the past couple days, things haven't been going my way. And I was about to worry that no good could come. Then, I remembered my Lenten promise - to not worry about things I can't control. And these bad things do not get better simply by worrying. So, I stepped back. Took a fresh perspective. And now, things are looking up. Things are looking very up, because not only do I have a prospective off-campus roommate, and a short(er) trip to see my family this Easter weekend, I also have an interview. And not just for any old job, but for an internship. With a design company. In Knoxville. This summer. Can. You. Dig. It? :D
It's not until Monday, so I have plenty of time to flip out and try not to worry, and then I have to remember not to hyperventilate when I speak to the OWNER of the company. Of course, it is on the phone, so I could just pass it off as bad reception. Unless she reads this. Drat.
Anyway, I am very excited, and very glad to see that Lent has not let me down.
Work piles up. Even the shepherd had to hire an assistant, way at the back of the flock. He's gonna have to work hard to move up through the ranks. :)
Just got back from the Career Fair across the river. It was all everyone could do not to stampede in the minute the doors opened. All sorts of companies were there, over a hundred, and with the help of my trusty map I managed to navigate the throngs of fellow seniors. I stopped by Wild Apple, The Buzz Company, Jester, Brand New School, Geneologie, WET and Bigstar. I'd like to thank all the reps who talked to me at the booths, and SCAD for putting this event on. I can't wait to get into contact with them, and hopefully generate something... :)
