Sketch Blog # 30 - Getty Internship Program - End

Today was the final day of the Getty Internship. The program culminated at the Getty center were interns from all over came to the Getty Museum to end our internship. At the museum, I bought a Pin-Hole Camera from the gift shop.  Now that the internship is over, I want to review on some of my experiences as an intern with the Community Arts Parternship and the Getty Museum. 
"Embrace frustration. "
Having a successful internship starts with introducing yourself to everyone in the office and try to meet everyone you can. I found this to be helpful not only in the office but also with the Getty Museum Events. Leaving the internship, I have to say that the best thing I'll be taking away from the experience would be attention to detail.  Working at the CAP office was not like a working in a classical organization, the best experience I received from the program has to be the stress management ability I earned from the four month program. 

There are essential points that are important for the professional world: 
1. Listen
2. Observer
3. Pragmatic thinker
4. Patient

Although my contract with the Getty's Internship has run out, CAP has decided to hire me on for another semester. I'll continue working a similar position as a non-work study office hand.

Sketch Blog #29 - Scene Construction

Our character starts her day. It's bright, sunny, and a breif wind ruffles her skirt. She stops briefly to push her skirt down and again continues walking.

At this time, we have our first introduction to one of our muscle man,
tom of finland inspired male character. He pops his head out of the
door, looks around briefly, then continues down the street following
our female character. Sausage shops.

The camera follows her into a business district where she joins people
who are eating and drinking coffee outside etc. As she passes the
beautiful small city atmosphere, strangely out of place brut male
characters start to be seen in the crowd, sitting or standing quietly
as if interrupted by her presence, their eyes following her as she

A bird sitting in the tree above her will drop a cute little white
birdie shit onto her hair. All the men will become completely
uninterested, and depart. The bird also flies away, looking satisfied.

She finishes her coffee and gets up to leave. She walks back towards
the same way she came. Her hair slowly getting larger, with a fetus
becoming present in the womb-hair.

She stands at a street light, waiting to cross, when her hair springs
a leak spilling over her book. She looks up.
