Yes, I emailed all my Parkland College Graphic Arts teachers to show them that those Graphic Design skills pay off but no, I’m not quitting the day job ;).

So. I woke up this morning inspired to add “appeal” to my animation. That would be, to make these numbers and stuff have character and appeal. Except, of course, I don’t have those drawing skills.

… so, the presentation went well enough at both conference and class to inspire me to dash off a request for being included in our grant request… but too late.
