When I was a kid, I had a pretty great stamp collection. In the beginning my specialty was puppy and kitten stamps. Did I mention I was like 6 or 7 when I started my collection? It grew to include a lot of other themes as well but I closeted it around 7th grade because I decided it wasn’t cool. In retrospect it was a pretty useful hobby. I learned geography, how to be careful with delicate objects, history, how to curate a collection, and design basics.
I was in the post office today mailing out some of my prints and I totally nerded out on these awesome Earthscape stamps. In addition to the city and suburb stamps, there’s a Monument Valley and Mount St. Helen stamp.
I know, right?!
I bought one to send and one to keep for the collection which I guess is back on.
Someone forgot to tell Southern California that it’s winter.
Went to the desert.
Went to the mountains.
It was a little colder up there.
But we could see forever.
LAX Part 2, so nice, I’m hanging up stuff twice.
Turns out I get to another project at LAX (the airport).
If you are flying out of LAX on Southwest Airlines, you can check out some of my original drawings in the departures (upper) level from now until March.
They’re located behind the security checkpoint, so you’ll need to have a ticket to see them.
It’s always hard to describe where things are in the complicated maze of hallways, checkpoints and gates at the airport.
But they’ll be in a hallway near the Starbucks, if that helps.
If you have time to kill, you can think of it as a treasure hunt.
It will give you something to do.
You know what’s fun? Putting Fresno into Google and zooming around the satellite views of all the fields. So many different greens.
But when you zoom in close, everything turns brown.
Reminds me of that quote from East of Eden (the book, duh).
“And it never failed that during the dry years the people forgot about the rich years, and during the wet years they lost all memory of the dry years. It was always that way.”
Looks like Google fixed that problem too. Not much they can’t do.
