apartment hunting, round 2 (pssst hey jake i might be your neighbor next year)
just when i got all excited and uplifted at seeing Gracie Hagen’s illusions of the body series being discussed in a Huffington Post article this afternoon..
…i was shot right back down upon looking at the comment section; seeing people discuss “fatties” and how they shouldn’t be naked, how pubic hair is disgusting - that all women should have a bald mons pubis, how tattoos are ugly and stupid. men saying they “couldn’t be drunk enough” to take one of the women featured in the photos home. several commenters seem to go on about a particular “horribly anorexic” looking girl - who i assume to be me.
silly silly humans.
i’ll never understand how you can be so stupid and destructive.
a drawing I’ve been working on here and there between writing essays, working on flash and crying
i’ve been itching to work on it more but i’m happy that i saw Victo Ngai speak before I got to finish it because she inspired me to experiment with color and texture, which I don’t do nearly enough. it was just the boost that i needed during finals week as I’ve been feeling very down about my work.
ilu 2 bb come back to me :(
Just saw Victo Ngai speak. It was really great! I’m a fan of her work, and her talk was just the pick-me-up inspiration I needed during finals.
getting there. i wish I had taken a shot of the book before i ripped it to pieces
