So! In the top row are a few drawings from 2008/2009, right before and during my first year at art school.
In the bottom row are a some drawings from 2013/2014, after I had graduated.
I don’t regret going to art school, but I don’t really believe it was art school that caused my improvement. I think I’ve improved at a rate that any artist drawing consistently for five years would have!
Art school was great for making artist friends, encouragement, being forced to draw frequently and for trying new things. It also sucked for several reasons, mostly student loan debt and having to take toooooootally worthless classes that contributed to student loan debt.
But yeah! I did progress over the years I was in school.
