Within the past couple of weeks I've stumbled upon two unusual messages. The first images show a twenty dollar bill that I received from a customer at work which had been stamped with some sort of logo. I haven't been able to find any information on the Black Diamond Riders, however discovering the bill definitely made me contemplate the idea of sending messages through such a tangible medium as currency.
The third image shows a letter I found in a book while at the library. I found the small note on page 145 of Factory Made, a book about Warhol and friends during the 60's. It took me awhile to interpret the hand writing but I was instantaneously moved by the message. Though the letter was not specifically directed toward me, I felt an undeniable connection to it. It evoke some interesting concepts about my relationship with my surroundings as well as strangers.

My room is filled with books, photos and scraps of paper that serve to grease my gears. The photos above are a few examples of imagery that inspire me and motivate creative stimulation. They range from early 20th century book illustrations, old hollywood starlets, japanese street style clippings, 1920s fashion illustrations and tacky 60s ads.
