I Will Be

There are very few blogs that I read religiously, but Luxirare is one of them. Despite the irritatingly sweeping proclamations about ART and FASHION that she is prone to making, I read every word. After all, she is smart. I think that she has earned the right to make absurd generalities that is normally reserved for art school professors. 

Although I love mostly everything she makes, my design aesthetic is nothing like hers. Mostly I respect the way she works-- the way she considers every detail and has a willingness to be completely in charge of the process.

Wheelman & Co.

The perfect backpack. Silly foppish details on a fancy "performance" Chrome-type bike bag. It goes for the obscene price of $200, but that seems to be the going rate for decent looking backpacks marketed towards bike people. Considering buying. I would use it every day, after all. And it does meet all my criteria (weatherproof, roomy, small front outside pocket, comfortable straps, nice looking). It even looks just like the small army surplus bag I use on the rare occasions that call for a purse. But for a person who has been buying clearance rack Jansports her whole life, a 200 dollar backpack is a difficult concept.

I shall think about it.

Tiny Black Sketchbook and Tiny Watercolor Set

Do you ever read Hipster Runoff for a while and it makes you very tired? It can be emotionally exhausting to absorb that level of manic self-awareness. It is basically a website that loathes and makes fun of its readership. Yet it is still very popular and people keep coming back. Like an abusive boyfriend or something. Sometimes it is pretty funny but sometimes I am just like, why am I reading this? It feels masochistic. I wonder if other people feel that way.

I have stopped drawing my outfits over break because they have mostly been pajamas. Don't want to fall of the wagon too hard though. I will start again tomorrow.
