Cult of Flowers/Art Shanty

I officially have a flickr now: I will be uploading photos there, rather than here, I think. I visited the Art Shanty's and saw the extraordinary "Ex-Lovers" and stayed long after I lost feeling in my toes.
On another note I basically decided what I am doing for my senior project: An Alternative Magazine for Young Women, entitled (tentatively) CULT OF FLOWERS. I need to collect/conduct interviews/articles for it starting now. If anyone has suggestions for good women role models to interview, or ideas for features or columns, let me know! Sassy magazine (r.i.p) is an inspiration for the content, although I've never actually held a copy. I've also been enjoying researching tons of other magazines for design and layout inspiration.

FINAL NOTE: I found this mysterious .jpeg on my desktop, entitled "bribe" if someone put it there, give me more details please, because the answer is probably yes.

As Of Late:

Now that I have a camera, my life is becoming increasingly more documented. I started a flickr (haven't uploaded anything yet) and wonder if my photos belong there rather than here? But for now here are some of my recent shots.

Went to a strange Home and Garden trade show at the metrodome with my dad. We looked at saunas and house siding and other intersting things.

My dad lent me his bass, and I am practicing. I have started and quit a lot of instruments in my life, but I have a good feeling about this one.

Found this on the free shelf, and had some HD/HL like fun.

Drawing women and thinking about flowers (hint: senior project.)

This camera bag is probably my most tangible and complete break project. It's basically a padded cube with a cool strap and velcro, thanks to Whit for the fabric.
