I love my ibook but having half the screen constantly flickering is really distracting.


I've decided how I am to go about my concept art post graduation lifestyle!

The main deterrent from graduate school is the cost, but I've found a wonderful alternative.

Concept Art's Atelier!

It's a school that was founded only a few years back by some of the leading concept artists of our time with a tuition cost of $600 a month.

It has a rolling admission and new people are let in when the old people leave for jobs or graduate after a two year stint.

From all accounts it is insanely competitive to get in as it is a very small school, and the workload is ridiculous.

For two years the only thing you do is learn how to do concept art and study to be better technically, socializing is done in the context of further learning your craft, and upon graduation you have been forged into something truly awesome.

However, the way they can assure you really are going to be awesome leaving is by only accepting people they think are awesome, or potentially awesome, going in.

Between the small window of opportunity to be chosen and the very large amount of skilled people applying it is not likely that I will be accepted anytime soon.

But this is okay, as it allows me to keep working in the field, while continuing to update my application to the school, until the day comes that I'm good enough to be allowed in.

I figure it will be a few years at least. Hopefully I will get accepted just as I've become tired of shopping my portfolio around for less pay than I would like, or for doing jobs that hold no interest.

It's a plan!
