tim burton.

harpers bazaar.


Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, "You're crooked. You've always been crooked and you'll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!" said the straight tree. He said, "I'm tall and I'm straight." And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, "Cut all the straight trees." And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange.

actually. i changed my mind. i dont mind the rain. id just prefer if it would stop briefly so i can run to my car with out me and all my tools and bags o stuff getting totally soaked.
then it can rain. it makes it actually feel like fall.


other old projects.

some of my old stencil graffiti work from a project where i used photographs i had taken and made a stencil from some part of it, went out and sprayed it and then took new photos of the spray painted stencil.
