School starts up again in about a week. Am I excited? Damn straight. I actually sort of miss the daily grind and being forced into productivity, even if I don't exactly miss the bizarre sleep habits and the total lack of energy. However, this is my last year, and if all goes well, I will be a graduate and have my Bachelor's degree in May. And oh my god I miss Detroit. I really do.
This summer was amazing, though. I went to Pasadena, California for a week as a student volunteer for the ICON6 illustration conference (and got to see L.A. on my free day with *Rougaroux
!), went to Traverse City, MI for a week, did not nearly enough drawing but some very fun projects (storyboarding for a student film, awesome experience!). I have no complaints.
SO WHO ELSE IS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL any new exciting plans for fall? TELL ME EXCITING THINGS.

Also, why am I suddenly being given like 8000 llamaa badges? I MEAN THANKS I'M A SWEET ALBINO LLAMA NOW but is it like LLAMA DAY or something?
Also .2, I still plan to go through and respond to the comments left, but a general thanks so much to all the new watchers/favorites/comments/etc. for the daily deviation I received the other day. I really appreciate it!
Hopefully I can get myself a little more motivated and post more often, haha.
