Only about 14 out of 30 students each semester get accepted into the program. Sometimes even less. I had a small panic attack when I went into the review room and saw tons of students hanging up their work. It was so overwhelming.
My paintings were all 30x40" so the wall space was very limiting. Each student only had a TEENY bit of wall space. I think my wall was the one with the most space. I still ended up having to lean some of my paintings against the wall instead of hanging them up. There are four judges who will look over all of the work tomorrow morning at 8:30 AM. Results will be posted by 10:30 AM. My professor says that I shouldn't worry so much. He really thinks I won't have a problem getting in. I hope he's right...
I took some shitty pictures from my cell phone of a few of the students' work. There were a lot of good ones. It's so interesting to see each person's style. What excites me is when you start to recognize someone's painting because of their very distinct style.
Mike's work. I really like his style. It's gritty and usually has a political/war theme that meshes with cartoon-like figures.
Don't think her work is very strong, but she is very cocky about it. Ick. I really don't like cocky people...
I love the way this girl paints. It's so smooth and well-blended.
Really random abstract stuff I will never understand. Nor want to paint. HAHA.
Apparently one of the judges loves weird abstract stuff like this. :(
Too bad that's not what I like to paint at all... *sigh*
My little corner.
Vulva, yarn, mangoes, and scents? Hmmmmmm....
This person paints really flat, 2-D, childlike stuff. I think it's really cute.
I LOOOOOOOOVE this girl's style. She paints really strange, creepy images with a very distinct style.
Bold lines and very bright colors. She should have put more of her work up though..
She has a lot of good paintings that aren't shown here.
This girl had her work up when I went into the room, but 15 minutes later I look back at the wall and she had removed all of it. Weird...
Everytime he walks into the room he screams.
Is that really necessary, dude? REALLY?
Oh my god. I hope I get accepted.
