Last Pop Art post and have decided to go with something incredibly stark. Sometimes the most beautiful things are honest and candid, some of Andy Warhols' most beautiful pieces came in the tiny form of polaroids of his friends and Factory People.
Someone once told me that if I was fruit I would be a peach...would I? They are kind of fuzzy and my legs don't grow hair...would I be a peach? I guess because I am extremely fair and their are red hues in my skin tone....Can anyone be just one fruit??
Every fruit has subtle hints of something else. For the longest time when I started eating mangos I thought they tasted like carrots. Now after years of eating them they now just taste like mangos. I really don't know where I am going with this. ..maybe it is about this whole idea of Introducing yourself...can you introduce who you are when maybe you don't know right now.
When I meet new people I feel a pressure to make conversation and I try to ask a lot of questions even if I don't really care. They introduce themselves as do I and you play a game with them. I think about how many introductions I have done and how many really turn into friendships....not too many. It is funny I can remember numerous introductions with people I will never see again, but I don't remember the first conversations of the people I am actually friends with.
I guess at 11:34pm your mind starts wandering...so here is my Self-portrait...nothing too glamourous.
Here I am a little Au Natural. Since 8th grade I have had short hair and never looked back from it, but now I am taking the big leap...growing it out...and going to let it get curly...only when it reaches the right length. In my mind that length is super long. I normally keep it straight via flat iron and some light product, but here you get a little sneak peak into what my hair REALLY looks like.

If I was a Squirrel I would probably look like this. This month in the world of Self-portrait Tuesday it is all about introducing yourself. I think this first photo is a great way to start off the month! Do you agree?
My muffin is amazing this morning. The ratio between chocolate chip and buttery cake is well...delicious! I usually throw away the bottom because frankly I am more i nterested in the chocolate chips and crumbly top than the actual cake part. That is just mainly filler to me. So instead I make a big latte with fat free milk and mostly espresso and I drink and eat at the same time. My tongue has a field day and seems very happy with me by the end! It also gets my brain going in the morning especially on days like this when I am not feeling this whole work thing I have gotten myself into.
My mom got these tea roses at a gala she went to for her job. They are one amongst many bouquets that are now living in my home Although not a huge rose fan I think these are very beautiful and the picture does not do them justice. They are refined and delicate yet wild in their arrangement and color.
Check out these T-shirt designs. I might have to break down this weekend and get one. I love robots, I have a collection of metal ones and I just love the emotion coming out of this tiny sad robot.
I was meandering through the internet several weeks ago and stumbled on this great artist Evah Fan who has the cutest work and t-shirts. Her stuff is sold at Giant Robot. I love her use of negative space and she just comes up with some really great ideas.
