my favorite person

i have been lucky enough to meet the sexiest dude alive. back in milwaukee when i was 16 and i walked into a skate shop with my mom. he had a beard and dressed like a grandpa before it was cool to dress like a grandpa. he was an artist before everyone was an artist, and he's still funnier than all of you jerks. he turned 37 on Friday.

i made him a paper mache mobile to put above his new computer.

and all of his friends came by to play CIRCLE OF DEATH

time flies when you are john mcguire's girlfriend.

the art project is great, but this book is even more amazing because the two artists that give the assignments studied each of the over 5000 entries they received over the past 5 years and picked the most challenging, heartbreaking, and hilarious ones to present.
my favorite assignments are the ones that turn out to be the most personal and honest:
assignment 52: write the phone call you wish you could have
assignment 53: give advice to yourself in the past
the ones about interviewing someone who experienced war were pretty interesting too.

assignment 30: take a picture of strangers holding hands.

assignment 42: list 5 events from 1984

this book is awesome. the website is still accepting entries and still giving new assignments randomly.

shopping for a good cause

please help LA artist Kime Buzzelli pay for her surgery by buying her great stuff on ebay!

here's her self portrait, wearing a t-shirt with her tumor on it. serious bummer.
