I've come to a sad realization recently that I won't be able to go on my road trip.
This is really really saddening to me, but I don't have a few grand to blow on gasoline so I'm considering my options.
FLYING. either NYC for aprox. ten days, or NYC and LA. shorter trip to NYC, followed by 3 days in Los Angeles. Not sure if this second option is worth the added expense when I could have the whole city of New York available to me for longer. I haven't been there since I lived there two years ago and am so hungry for that city. I await the afternoon that I get the spicy cocout chicken soup from my ex-neighborhood restaurant Republic, and then hit the streets with my digital cam and ipod. AH. heaven for realz.
The loss of the road trip is definately a challenge for my senior project, as research was the main goal of this trip, but I think it will be better this way. I'm thinking about a mailing aspect of research, where I send people these lovely packages that have a survey, a few images for them to respond to, and keep, a disposable camera for them to document their lifestyle and a day in the life, and then probably a little candy for good measure. Then I'll double bag it so that they get a package to send back to me already addressed and paid for.
Alright. Well thanks for reading that.. um on a more face level, here is the new installment of images I've found and stolen from the internet. Why do I do this? Because I love judging and sharing my judgements with the etherworld. So read on if you wish to hear a little from my concious.
To begin with, these are two t-shirt designs that I did for my step-aunt's memorial walk. My family has recently began to understand what graphic design is enough to ask me to do things like this.. they aren't great but most definately an improvement on a crosswalk sign or tennis shoe being used as the main focus. (previous two years)
here's an image of the big dogs at the Walker. (photo by Erin Johnson)
I like that Philippe is the main focus, and you can see Peter in the background. Philippe totally deserves that pat on the back. French foxes always do.
this lil guy is for colin's rat tail.
and these adorables are Blue Heelers. the new object of my lust. I want one of these australian sheep dogs so badly. they look sort of like hyenas, and of a similar temperment to German Sheperds. If I am still alone in 2 years this will be my boyfriend.

and here.. the infamous Amy Winehouse. This is the only celebrity I keep up with because I think she's got such a great voice, yet has soo soo many problems. I think her style is awesome. Even if it is crack head shiek. These following images were personal ones that she didn't expect to leak, and I've chosen the sweetest ones. Leaving out the ones of her smoking crack, because we all have our downfalls (hopefully not as bad as crack..) but we are all people, and I was really amazed at how loving and normal these images are.
morning photo op. they look so cute!
and here, Blake impersonating her.. its adorable.
This is like teenage movie shit.. Lovey dovies taking photos of eachother together. Thas love baby.
Moral learned: Even crackhead celebrities can love eachother.
I'm out for now, but will continue to collect random pieces of our culture and report back to you.
