Photobooth Friday: Wanna be Warhol!
Ah yes, the culla' o' money!
Actually, I took this in art school when I was lacking dough, hoping it would magically force the universe to pay my tuition by cosmic suggestion. I think it was taken in a mall or a themepark in one of those Japanese import photo-sticker booths. You know the kind...you step into it, and pull a blue screen down behind you, and pick your graphic surroundings...then it prints out a page of stickers of your shot. You know?
Well, I chose a hundred dollar bill. But don't let my obnoxious glare fool you...I was pretty hard up for cash. I think I had like four jobs that Summer between semesters. One was waiting tables, one was working in the Housing Office on campus, one was giving tours of the college to prospective students, and one was delivering trash bags to all the residents in our dorm. Luckily, putting myself through art school has paid off somewhat. I've been enjoying the happily employed, monied lifestyle for the last five years working at a design and animation studio (when I was in Atlanta).
Although, now that I'm in New York, the finance struggle continues...will I squeak by, or will this city pick me up and snap me like a twig over its knee?
Only future freelance work will tell...
Until then, I'm enjoying the photobooth assignment inspired by Hula Seventy!
