something about being a heathen

Christmas happened early for me since I'm going to Colombia to spend it with other family, so here's some cool things that were bestowed upon me that I think you should know about!
Everyone's been in a tizzy about Rob Ryan lately since he's been doing work for EVERYONE (starbucks, Target, etc.) so I found out that this laser cut print that I got at an art fair in High School was actually his! I'd totally forgotten his name in the mean time. Luckily he has a book and it's super cheap and my mom got me a used copy WHICH IS AWESOME.

And my dad outdid himself and gave me a really personal and creative gift. Part one was this postcard that he bought in London at Portobello Rd. when he and my mom lived there for three years right before they got married. It has Queen Victoria and the rest of the royal family on it! SO GOOD.

and part two was his old 4x5 negative large format camera. ALL MY WILDEST DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE. Ricardo almost peed himself over this one. I can't wait to use it! too bad it'll have to wait until after I study abroad and come back to MICA.

It'll be 2010 when I come back from Colombia. And I will be turning 21 in 2010, how weird is that?

I may be a hipster

But I really need new glasses and what's wrong with these?! NOTHING, THAT'S WHAT. yeah that's what I thought.

Finals have come and gone and now I have time for you

not to make you feel unappreciated or anything. I've basically decided that I'm going to post onmy blog as though there were actually people who read it, and then maybe they will come? YEAH I THINK THAT'S HOW IT'S GOING TO WORK. So just to recap:

-I finished that costume! and it was met with roaring success. Pictures with a hand painted solar system back drop to come soon.

-I wrote two stupid papers (the seond one is being turned in today, finals are not technically over)

-my final crits for drawing and junior independent told me NOTHING about my actual artwork. which was fun, if by fun I mean unrewarding and a little useless. not totes useless, just mostly.

the big news is of course that I go home to Florida tomorrow because of winter break, where I will spend all of 72 hours and then go spend Christmas and New Year's with my family in Colombia! I am so mega ridiculous excited. I miss my cool Colombian cousins and Christmas Colombian style (please refer all you questions to what a Colombian style Christmas is to the latest Modern Family episode: and then the real big news is that I'll be spending my spring semester in Florence! There will be a lot of travel blog posts, street style posts, food posts, art posts, random posts, outfit posts etc. it will just be excellence all around. I'll post my little heart during the break because there's so much I want to share! I've been looking at so much fashion, and watching a lot of movies and amassing a lot of inspiration pictures. you will see them soon. I leave you with some Sally Mann, who I have rediscovered my everlasting love for while rewatching Art21 while I should have been writing papers:

Also, I want to wear this outfit.
also I wish that I am this bad ass in the future.
