Happy Times

Nothing much has been shared recently, though much has occurred. I've been greatly occupied with Real Life (TM) and have recently become a Master of Science (in Art Conservation). This required not only the print portfolio (which UPS somehow managed to slightly crush on its way from Canada to America - but it is kind of alright - I guess - though somewhat embarrassing).

But anyway, as this was so happy, I'm sharing some of my favorite things: Soviet propaganda posters. I love the fonts, the stony-faced women, the cosmonauts, everything. I've also been contemplating doing a large mural on one of the walls in the Canada House in a similar style, as a gift to the Interlopers. The working title is, "The Triumph of the American Right".


Threshing machine?


Zepplins. Communist zepplins.


Final cosmonaut.

From the following, where you can translations of the text:
Soviet Lunar Christmas Cards - someday you all will receive one of these.

The big Oral Presentation day was nice (once my talk was over) but strange, because WPEACs were there. But they weren't our WPEACs (ie Alison and Patty and etc). They were strange new ones... who all tried to hit on Bret. Poor kids.
