Croqui Collection: Plato's Symposium

Yeah, you heard it: a collection based on something written by an old, dead, bearded Greek philosopher.

Croqui Collection: Star Wars Villains

I really like Star Wars, okay? And I really loved Force Awakens, especially the Villains. Yeah, you heard it: the villains have a great aesthetic.

Virtue and Wealth: The Roles of Women & Their Clothes in the Renaissance

Duchamp's L.H.O.O.Q. knows more than you. 

Alright, listen up. The Renaissance was great. Da Vinci, tons of new inventions, art, music, treatises! And, although women's clothing was great too, their positions in society weren't so great. At all. But, hey, jewels, amirite?

Croqui Collection #1

Sometimes I do fashion drawings. 

     This marks my first collection! I took inspiration from prosperity- the hatching of insects (butterflies, dragonflies), flowers, buildings, skyscrapers, sexuality. I incorporated lots of bright colors and patterns into this croqui collection, as I thought bright colors were common when associated with prosperity and happiness. However, I've also chosen to include some black and white pieces/accents, as I believe prosperity does not always benefit everyone. We tend to think of prosperity as mostly good, and while it is all of those things, those good things are not all parts of it. The black and whites, clearly opposites, strive to demonstrate that prosperity benefits some, but others are left behind in the wake of that prosperity.

Happy Summer!

(A photo from dinner in Early June!)

   I've had a great summer so far and I'm about to head off to college, so here's a huge post about where I've been this summer: NYC and Montana, two completely different places!
