We're still making proverb flags at the DIA! Here's one I made during my shift today.

That pen is kind of a bully.

Also I'm doing this thing now? It's called Twitter? I dunno. It's weird. I'm practicing for my trip. I tried to do it before because I really like it IN THEORY. Because I really like text messages because they are like little poems. And this is just like text messaging except you don't need any friends, you can just text the internet. Anyway I didn't get into it last time I tried twittering from the computer, but I did the thing where I can do it from my phone, which is the true spirit, so we'll see.
If you didn't fill out your Census watch out cause I'm gonna GET YOU.

I've decided to postpone my crazy road trip until June 3rd, cause I'm making some BUCK$ working for America right now. I have a badge.

I swore all kinds of confidentiality oaths and stuff so I can't tell you any fun stories about weirdos, but I'm really looking forward to meeting all kinds of strangers and seeing into their houses.

Road Trip!

Planning trips is stressful and exhilarating. I love it. And there are TONS of great resources out there, which really just makes for more stuff to pour over.

I'm heading out May 10th with my brother and my good buddy Becca for Road Trip America 2010. Thirteen states, ten of which I have never been to before. It's going to be the best. Also also horrible because it is 100 hours of driving. Suffering is important to me for some reason. I'm trying to think of different ways to document it. I'll probably re-install my twitter account. Also a new zine should come out of it. Ghost towns, ghost highways, canyons, giant trees, mountains, deserts, cliffs, and the OCEAN which everyone says is going to be too cold to swim in but I'm going to try anyway.

Added type and some embellishments.

"A bird in the hand" text is warring too hard with that yellow. Might have to cheat it a little lighter than the gray? I tried it in brown and it was too much brown. HUMMMM.

a bird in the hand.

We're making proverb flags at the DIA this month.

I don't know about this one. Also the feet are kind of my favorite part but maybe they are too detailed and don't fit. Sometimes having a favorite part is a good way to ruin something. I can't believe how simple this is and how long it still took me to make it. I'll probably come back to it after I stop looking at it for a while.
