The Best Dog In All the Lands

This is my parents replacement for me. His name is Neo as in "the one"  matrix

Little Bro on Drugs

Here's a cute video of my brother.  My dad thought it would be humorous to film him during a vulnerable moment.

Until today, this blog has failed to acknowledge the existence of a very important person to me; Maira Kalman (wife of Tibor)
here you go, Maira. Keep on keeping it real.

Gracie Glass, MFA in Chemical Technology

I introduce to you the other half of this enterprise. 

The first person I see when my head departs from the pillow, the person who shares the same 600 square feet of oxygen and various other air particles day in day out.

This is a picture of what my bedroom looked like in high school:

My dad took everything down because he said it hurt his eyes when he tries to paint. This is what it looks like now:

This weekend I started to look for an internship for summer 2009. I am looking for something in Graphic Design. I had a very specific vision about working for a trendy arts and cultural commentary magazine. I redirected the nature of my search after realizing that I accidently applied to a sex toy and fetish gallery/blog/magazine (the form of media is ambiguous, I just know that the content involved consists of penises with angel wings)

I was so worried about finding something "cool" I couldn't even see what I was doing and I ended up telling someone who makes dildos that I am "eager to be of assistance" to them.

I am exhausted with chasing after coolness.  As of now, I am searching for a commercial, mainstream design firm. I don't even care if I end up working for the people who decide on the typography for Air Conditioner Catalogs. They could probably teach me a lot more about creating a dynamic layout for a spread than the people at Vice Magazine.
