i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite a new thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh … . And eyes big love-crumbs,
and possibly i like the thrill
of under me you quite so new” —e.e. cummings
julia kuo. found her in CMYK magazine. lovely stuff + she’s a california native. go team!
How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d.
my ongoing doodle project last fall. this drawing probably stemmed from the newfound sense of independence i felt from moving across the country. i left a nerve-wracking family, a heartbreaking relationship and a close-minded city to pursue a new life and, hopefully, a career.
sometimes it scares me how badly i want to succeed. there are about one thousand graphic design and advertising students at SVA. they take the same classes as me. they’re inspired by the same teachers as me. most importantly, they all want what i want: to make a (good) living doing what they love. lately i’ve been wondering: do they want it as badly as i do? i mean, really want it. and if so, how do i make my work better than theirs? sophomore portfolio review is five months away. i have been obsessing since the first day of school. like i said, sometimes it scares me.
