bringing in the new year

with the best christmas present ever. my very own url.

check it out. but don't judge. i'm well aware that i probably built the whole thing the wrong way and the long way... that being said, suggestions from those in the know would be greatly appreciated. it is definitely a work in progress. and there are definitely some things i'm still trying to figure out. (like why it takes so long for the images to load. and how to get my name to stay when you scroll.)

don't open till x-mas

they might not make the best type choices (yes, i'm still bitter about the switch...) but ikea certainly has the best wrapping paper. festive without any repeating reindeers or candy canes or santas.

the calm before the finals storm

some photographers i've fallen in love with over the course of the semester + some old favorites. one thing that photoimaging, unexpectedly, has been really good for... finding and defining a photographic aesthetic that excites me. once you get past foundation year, it seems all to easy to get sucked into your major and miss all of the other exciting stuff outside of your medium.

still at a loss for christmas presents?

mica's art market started today. & goes on until sunday. go check it out! i was definitely pissed when i had pull this stuff together mid the craziness of finals... but now that i'm done making stuff and inventory lists and price tags... i'm feeling it.

(the stuck gd upstairs on the second floor. which sort of sucks. good thing we have these sweet signs.)

33. take field trips

words cannot do this place justice, so i'll let the photos do the talking. just know it's even crazier in person.

please support globe and buy some of their legendary show posters. they would sure make good christmas presents (not that i'm considering doing that for anyone or anything...) and are worth way more than these modest guys would ever admit.

you can also check out this recent city paper feature for more about globe.

carol never wore her safety goggles. now she doesn't need them.

a group of us from aiga have been working on billboards for the maryland optometric association/maryland society for sight. and in an effort to be a little less jarring than carol's sad story, i think these eye oriented pick up lines are quite fun.
