Hello everyone!

I've created a facebook page and I'd love it if you would have a look at it.
Oh and I'm giving away a print to one of my 'fans' (aka the people that have liked the page) there. ;)

I need to show my portfolio at the HKU in Utrecht and the Koninlijke Academie van Beeldende Kunst in The Hague on the 29th of april and the 16th of may.
I'm going to die.
Anyway.. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I should or should not put in my art portfolio? (You can point at things in my gallery if that helps ;))

Xx Anouk


**Update May 25th**
In The Hague they told me to come back July 4th :D So now I'll need to make loads of paintings etc. before I go back there. Hope they'll accept me. Though I think I should also have another look at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam before it is too late ;)
Anyway, thanks for all suggestions :cookie: cookie for everyone ! :iconcarameldansenplz:

My cat KC

He had been looking really bad for 2 or 3 days. He had been looking bad weeks before but seemed to be getting better. Yesterday I found him looking dirty because he had been drooling over himself. He hadn't really eaten for days and was really thirsty. When we brought him to the vet she told us that there was a big chance that his kidney's were failing. She took some of his blood and tested it, within 15 minutes we had the results.
There was nothing we could do. Nothing without hurting KC. He was 15 years and we didn't want him to suffer any longer, so we decided to put him to sleep. That happened only 1 hour after we went to the vet.
I miss him. But he had a good life while living with us and was a very spoilt cat. I will miss him running through my room when I'm trying to go to sleep..

I am going to make a little book filled with my photo's of him. He was the best model I've ever had. :)

:bulletblue:DevMeeting Utrecht NL
So, I am going to the deviantartMeeting in Utrecht April 2nd. I really wonder how many people are going. I also hope someone will come with me as I don't want to go alone.
My social skills are rather awful.

:bulletblue:Art academy
I really need to apply for at least 2 art academies before april. I keep postponing it, partially because I'm terrified of being rejected etc. I want to do illustration or 'fine arts'(?) but I really doubt I'm good enough. Ah well, will find that out once I've showed my art. If anyone has got some tips for a good portfolio I'd like to hear it. I've got 3-5 dummies filled with drawings and sketches etc, lots of paintings and drawings digital and traditional and photo's. I should be able to make something nice with that hmm?
    
:bulletblue:I really need to finish things..
I haven't worked on my Emily Deschanel drawing ever since posting a new WIP here on dA. I feel bad about it because it doesn't look bad, I just don't feel like working on it right now. I drew Taylor Swift for my cousin and I will have to draw a little boy for someone's wedding which is... soon.. too soon! And besides all that I started working on an old digital painting again.

Hmmm don't think there is something else I should mention?

:bulletblue:Art Trade
Oh wait, I almost forgot... I'm doing an art trade with :iconangellover89:! She is making me a (rein)deer and I will attempt drawing Cosmo & Wanda (Fairly Odd Parents :heart:) in a slightly more realistic style. Should be fun!

:bulletblue:If anyone has a request.. You can always ask! :)

:bulletblue:Things to make and do:
-Draw a scene from The Kings' Speech (Colin Firth + Helena Bonham Carter)
-Draw a scene from A Single man (Colin Firth + Julianne Moore)
-Cosmo&Wanda drawing
-Emily Deschanel drawing
-Little Boy drawing
-Nicole Kidman digital painting
