Hi everyone


    When I was 22 years old, I had dreamed of studying illustration in some good college in USA. I had abandoned the dream because it is impossible for my parents to pay for a super-expensive tuition free and a high cost of living is a big punch in the stomach. How could Asian middle family afford that? like my country, Thailand.....30 baht for 1 US dollar. That is a true story and what we can do is to accept defeat. Two years later "Torch passed, new path illuminated" I have walked on a new path and left that dream behind. I realize life is hard and chasing your dream is harder. It is waiting for you on a dangerous mountain peak and climbing is the only way to reach it. No shortcuts, no magic portals...just you and the rocks to put your fingers on. But it does not mean I give up my life as an artist, just a longer and rougher road. I really believed it.
    Then...like he has toyed with my life! My friend brought me a message from his trip to universities in CA. My face was like "What is this dreaming scholarships!? Is it true?" It is true and not that easy. It is scholarships of CCA, also known as Califonia College of Arts. If it sounds so dreaming, there must be people out there who want to study here too. What about me?.... Well, this will be the most unforgivable thing in my life if I won't try it! That torch comes again and I will grab it tightly.
     By the way, the deadline for scholarship applicants is February 1. Fighto!! and wish all the best for you.

Thank you
Apinyo Yuwasilp

I know you can do it if you put your mind into it. Your work is amazing and beautiful. I wish you the best and hope you get the scholarship.
But, if you do not get it, do not feel bad. You can learn most of the things they can teach through tutorials and the net (and practice).

You know, I had a dream to go to a good university too. And did, except it turned out it wasn't as good as I expected. I took a lot of money from my parents and now that I'm almost graduated I think I know even less than I knew before the course began. I of course wish you luck and all but if you don't have it in you no school will help you, most universities only tell you that a certain knowledge exists and you can find it in this book, but they don't teach much. Especially in the case of art you can learn everything on your own.

I know that. I already graduated with one bachelor degree, a science of animation degree. It was the worst choice I ever did. I want to risk with this once again. Whether I can get the scholarship or not. I know I did do something.

well, do try, maybe you'll manage to somehow stay longer in the US, get a job there, if there is a place on earth where they need artists it would be there
even if you only write down some names and addresses to send an online portfolio to it will be something, make some contacts
