When I was given this by dear sweet Paris I instantly thought of a architecture studio back in 2005. It was in the beginning of a project. We had to make concept boards. This then brought up all kinds of memories of those architecture days and all the things I was told and things I wanted to say. I left off one which was pretty much, “conceptualize my foot up your butt.” Looking back, I am glad I didn’t say that, but late nights and sometimes all nighters, can put your emotions on the brink of insanity. None the less, I am glad I thought of this because this is when Paris and I bonded over Quiznos, sweet dance moves, and our love of broccoli and cheese soup. Not my best work, but now that this blog has become my sketch book, I am strangely okay with challenges that are not my favorite. The little challenges keep my mind sharp and create a place for this artistic and design frustration that has inhabited my head in the past 3 years since I graduated.
Wishing you a lifetime of paper rainbows and smooth peanut butter…W the retired architecture student
