hoping to hop out of this rut
i'm unfortunately rethinking my intended major. transferring to a 4-year art college this fall is my plan, but the thought of graduating with a degree in painting and having to resort to teaching is not my ideal situation.
i've always had a secret mindset against the idea of majoring in painting until it hit me; perhaps graphic design might be a better idea. it's not because it seems more practical to my situation, but because it would help me grow more. after reading overviews of its program it seems so much more multifaceted than the descriptions i've came across (business cards and webpages, not quite my things). i've always been fond of semiotics (the study of signs) since i took a postmodern studies course at the community college i attend. the thought of book design and packaging tempt me too much.
this rut, this horrible rut i am in is that my portfolio consists of work that is MOSTLY observational, fine art pieces. i'm just afraid that it wouldn't show potential in graphic design really. would it? i still have a few months before everything is due, is all hope lost? someone give me hope.
