    11.07.2012 / things

    Hey look! It’s November. That’s pretty funny, 2012. I’m totally going to write you a speeding ticket. OK, a written warning, but only because I really like your hair that way.

    Over the next few weeks, I’ll be compiling a few rad gift suggestions for all of the lucky recipients in your life this holiday season and it’s only fitting that I kick things off with my main squeeze: Art. I think art moves and shakes the world, and I dare you to try to find a person in your life that you can’t give art to. (Except for your landlord. Landlords hate art. It’s in the bylaws.) So in the spirit of gift-giving, here are a few of my favorite prints, photographs and pieces that would look killer under the trees of my own friends and fam:
