Nice Things: A Mission Statement

Nice Things

A Mission Statement is defined as “a formal summary of the aims and values of a company, organization, or individual”.  Any company, organization or individual worth their weight in shit has a Mission Statement.  It’s often a good indicator of the direction and professionalism of an organization.  Take a look at Warby Parker’s:  To offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses.  Isn’t that nice?  I’d definitely give Warby Parker my business.  In fact, the bespectacled goblin who’s typing these words is seeing the world through a pair of Warby Parker frames.

Closing Reception Revisited…

Here we are at the closing reception at the ESKFF Residency. It got a lot more crowded as the evening went on. Some of my guests include: Blonde Jenny (now with blue hair), Milos, Paul Dennison, Rebecca Graves, Sandy DeSando, Dan Frohwirth, Emi, Fermin Mendoza, and thanks to everyone else whose photos I didn’t snap. We had a great time and special thanks to Gina and Eileen Kaminsky. Dinosaur drawing will most probably be left undone. I like it the way it is. May be a whole new direction, but who knows.

Stay tuned…
