it does look like I’ll be leaving new york city for a while/forever I guess
which is really depressing for me but I don’t have a job outside of sporadic freelancing and my apartment is unnecessarily expensive. So at the end of the month I’m moving a few hours north of the city to live with relatives who vocally do not want me there (hooray) until I save up to move somewhere else. Ideally somewhere I have a job. Or New Orleans.
Anyway point is: to facilitate my boomerang millennial lifestyle, or, more accurately, moving costs, I want to do some $10 USD (+ shipping) small ink drawings. They’ll be done with archival ink/ on Arches or bristol and mailed out.
By Art alone we are able to get outside ourselves, to know what another sees of this universe which for him is not ours, the landscapes of which would remain as unknown to us as those of the moon.
Marcel Proust (1871–1922, France)
