The kids go to Washington.

This picture is of my childhood best friend Kate, myself and my buddy Roberto. We all come from the land of Maine. And now we convene in DC to reclaim our insanity by causing chaos.... and more insanity. At the end of it all, I found pictures in my camera of a woman in tye-dye, a large sand lot dog, an eagle painted in the colors of the american flag and a man bending by his car to reveal a very odd butt crack. This is how Kate takes pictures of the "sights" in DC.

Katie was just here in Atlanta for again more chaos and insanity. Also here: my mom and a family friend. It's been a little crazy but exactly how I like it. Theres way too many creatives with too little inspiration from actual life. I get inspiration from the hilarity of my family and friends. It's that connection with real life that I think is the only way to create great work. Too many creatives just think they can get away without having connections with actual people. I can't imagine how some people get their inspiration when they haven't seen family or friends in years. Maybe it's the glare of their Mac screens that are blaring into their retinas but this is no industry to be blind of whats going on around you.

Kids on the book of faces: more pictures of craziness in DC available. Atlanta photos coming soon... or whenever Kate gets around to putting them up.
