Well to start off, I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. Born and raised in Wheeling, Illinois (Chicago suburb). But moved to Phoenix...don't really like it...at all...whatsoever. But I've made the most of it by making the best of friends and letting my dream grow. Which is to become an animator (and go to CalArts!) Which I just very recently got accepted into the Character Animation Program at CalArts for Fall 2012. I love to draw, sketch, paint, etc and of course I love to make hand drawn animations! I thought it would be nice to finally join the site to see what all the "buzz" was about!
You could say I have big plans for the future...but I'm not afraid to go after them because so far I've gotten where I wanted to after working so hard. I want to tell stories, and I plan to do so in animation.

I was laughing with sarcasm too Wei! I noticed tuition went up about a thousand more and their Cal Grant was reduced from $9,708 to $5,472!
I know they have payment plans and other things like that, but I wish I could pay in arms and legs maybe? Just not my drawing/animating hand. Just kidding!
