about that.
related to my thesis work.

"A spokeswoman said Mr. LePage, a Republican, ordered the mural removed after several business officials complained about it and after the governor received an anonymous fax saying it was reminiscent of “communist North Korea where they use these murals to brainwash the masses.” " -

brainwashing, really? it's our history.
why are people so fearful of the honoring
of our past? this country wasn't just born
in the advance industrial age. the jumpsuit
that kid is sporting, that alone defines the
working men and women of americas
past. to move the mural to a museum
destroys its value, it should be seen by
everyone because of its educational worth.


two images that i often refer to when
i am designing. vionnet designed for
woman, not for the spectacle of high
society. she boldly embraced simplicity
and stayed true to the body. she designed
and made with care.

Lenore Tawney

" Back in Chicago in 1957, she packed a few possessions into a car and drove to New York City. “I left Chicago,” she later wrote, “to seek a barer life, closer to reality, without all the things that clutter and fill our lives. The truest thing in my life was my work. I wanted my life to be as true. I almost gave up my life for my work, seeking a life of the spirit.” "


yeah man.
