calm before the storm.

Super tired today. Yesterday was Comic Thong, which is my school's comic club's comic drawing marathon for the Fall 2012 comic submission deadline which is coming up next month. It went from 8pm to 8am, and I had been planning on going at 8pm and staying until maybe 12. I ended up going at 9:30 and stayed until 6:45. I think by that time I wasn't functioning anymore.
I took some work that I needed to get done first, and then thought about what I wanted to do for my comic after I finished my work. I was working on some children's designs for a scholarship opportunity.

I think I finished around 1:30 or 2, and started brainstorming ideas for my comic. Nothing I thought of seemed to work out, so for about two and a half hours I sat there thinking of what to do without getting anything down on actual paper. Once I started coming up with ideas, nothing I drew came out how I wanted it to and I ended up drawing silly comic strips about things I suck at.

 Love, Kaia

Where did you manage to find a scholarship contest? I struggle finding them and don't know where to look or start...

@Kurahimeka: I didn't fail in any subjects, but my grade was not as high as many of my peers in high school. Because of that, I didn't get into many of my academic schools, most which look for students who had a GPA of over 4.0 (honor and ap courses). While art schools much more lenient on GPA, most still hope for at least a 3.0 in their students. While grades can be a factor, your portfolio is most important.

Anon1: Hello! I'm very happy you like my art. Unfortunately due to school workload, I'm not able to take requests.

Anon2: This scholarship had a connection with my school, so one of the spokespeople came to talk to us. I personally have a hard time finding scholarship opportunities too, but my school does have a board with postings of scholarship ops, and searching online is always an option.
