Today I'm writing my news entry from a hotel in Burbank, California (near L.A. for all of you who aren't sure). I decided to go on the Emily Carr Illustration/Animation Trip for my reading week break this year, and it's been really amazing so far. I'm one of 18 students who will be spending the next few days listening to presentations from professionals in illustration/animation and going on studio visits to get an idea of what working in our respective industries might actually be like.
In order to document the trip I've been asked to blog about our experiences in California, which will be completed through a series of compositions/drawings. I should be updating pretty regularly this week with pages full of fun photos, drawings, and quotes from the presentations and studio visits we'll be on.
Also, I'm pretty excited to be in LA. It's warm here :)
