National Portfolio Review Day at Otis

 
Otis, the art college just in couple of minutes outside LAX, looked crowded. Even if you walked onto the campus, somehow without noticing the sign, you would probably guess right that you were standing at an art college. The demographics of that place just screamed out loud of creativity all around me. They all looked different, and yet there was something about all them that was the same. They all had that scared, excited look on their faces.
The first booth I went to was San Francisco School of Art, or SFSA. The guy (I only remember his last name – Lopez) who examined my pictures especially liked the ones taken outside the school. One of them was of Taco Bell at night. I remember that the works of Edward Hopper, especially the “Nighthawks”, inspired me. He didn’t really have any significant negative feedback, so I moved on.
The next one was Rhode Island School of Design, but before I even got there, I stood in line for – as I felt – an eternity. Finally, the woman who reviewed me subtly said that I need “just a little more experience”.
The final booth I went to was School of Visual Arts from New York. The reviewer was currently enrolled in SVA so we had a little chat about campus life. She liked my pictures and said that I do have a lot of potential.
By the end of the day I was exhausted but at least I had some feedback from people outside of Venice Arts, which in general was positive.
