Image and Text, Fashion and Nature

I am a Fashion Design student who constantly feels the need to respect and serve the environment. I recently created an ink drawing combining typography with image. I hand wrote out one of my favorite quotes by Lord Byron, and paired it with a very stylized fashion face and string of beads. Its not anything special, but it was pretty fun to draw...I've been really into this pen and ink stuff recently.
 I wanted to play with the idea of Nature vs. Fashion, or if you dig deeper: minimalism vs. consumption.This piece displays a contrast that hopefully pushes people to see the culmination of fashion and the environment (my two loves).
Haha I just realized that my blog banner really jives with this post...
I need to change that banner I really hate it... Sigh

Winter Photo Diary

"I made myself a snowball
As perfect as can be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for it's head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first - It wet the bed." 
- Shel Silverstein

(All photos taken by me, winter 2011)
Winter was wonderful ....
.... But I'm more than ready for spring.
