About

ABOUT: Cut and paste. Magazines. Watercolors. Inks. Bad polaroids and fake photography. Overpriced moleskines and composition notebooks. We run to paper instead of people, and sometimes... we get tired of just plain words. Sometimes we need badly drawn portraits and the things we see inside our heads when we'd rather not see at all. This for the girls and boys who keep journals and diaries, for the ones who gave up on locking them up. We're here to share. Give us some inspiration, or come find your own.
