Sometimes I feel like I'm living in a snowglobe. It's a lovely feeling when you're holed up doing work but can simply look out the window and catch a glimpse of this picturesque weather. I really do love winter, but my favourite boots (the ones I'm wearing here) broke!
I've been really interested in Keith Haring lately. Even if the name isn't familiar, you've probably seen his artwork. He does these adorable little cartoons that about peace, love, AIDS awareness etc. They remind me of everything that was seedy and vibrant and exciting about the New York City in the 1980s, which was Haring's hallowed ground. He died of AIDS in 1990, but I feel his work is alive and well.
Actually, Adidas just came out with a line of tracksuits with his work printed on it. I kind of love this jacket but its $300.
