Don't worry about it

...easier said than done, eh?

Anyway, a sort-of random splattering of postings for today, but interesting as always!

The first is this insane wallpaper by James Jean for Prada store locations. I wish I could make something like that, much less create enough of anything to cover a 17' x 200' space. Wowza! Imagine the commission on that one! It's gorgeous. Don't forget to scroll right for full effect!

Secondly, I found this way-cool article, "Old-School Portraits See Resurgence Online" (courtesy CNN) about a guy who makes tons of money painting people portraits to use as Facebook photos or online identities. It's interesting to think about how we're portraying ourselves and who sees it, and how they may see it differently. As mentioned in the article, we create identities for ourselves based on what we do online, whether we're conscious of it or not. Where do we hold accounts? Where do we comment? How active of members are we? The list goes on. It would be interesting to have my online identity analyzed, though I doubt anything they come up with would be much of a surprise.

And finally, as a reminder to [mostly] myself and the few of you out there who may read this:
