Ever since I became interested in becoming a graphic designer I’ve maintained a collection of stuff that I acquired for its design, weirdness or historical relevance. Some of it I bought just so that I could take it home and document, others because they were crazy finds (sorry, the Wim Crouwel-designed catalogs that I scored for .25¢ each aren’t going anywhere) and others I grabbed because it’s always wild to find something designed by Paul Rand regardless of its quality (both in terms of physical condition or lazy Helvetica work of the 1970s). The Plastic Arts is a spot to get some of this stuff out of my basement and back into the world.—@mvajoshua

Happy Sunday guys long post ahead!! We have been living in this house for a while now and we have worked on the kitchen and just a few paint jobs here and there. I'm still moving art around and still need a few lighting options and furniture to work with it's layout. Truth is when we bought it I vowed I wouldn't touch most of it for a while because we were already stressed with the move and needed a break from renos. I also said I'll live in it for a while until I know exactly what I want to do because I'm really indecisive about my house. It's a balance of brightening and modernizing while keeping its original midcentury character and charm. Finally I actually decided what I want to do and I got my husband on board with my ideas. It's going to be a such a journey because it's a tough project ( painting 20 ft walls and staining ceilings ) but I know it's so worth it. Now I'm just itching to get my hands dirty and start - 6 hours ago
Quand ils prétendaient m'expliquer, les autres gens m'annexaient à leur monde, ils m'irritaient; Sartre au contraire essayait de me situer dans mon propre système, il me comprenait à la lumiére de mes valeurs, de mes projets. - 6 hours ago
