blessed be accessories.

Blessed Be Accessories:
This was a book that I made inspired by clubbers, hipsters and random people that I meet at parties. 

"Everyone has secrets
 being young and sexy
 to attract another 
 is not always easy

 One must sometimes 
 conceal their habits. 
 insecurities and secrets 

 Oh Blessed be Accessories
 these small finishing touches 
 help to conceal the cat in the bag 
 at least for a while. 

In a nutshell the book is about different stereotypes and how accessories make you "appear" to be something your not. Example: one girl is covered in tattoos but her coat makes her appear to be quite the classic beauty. etc. you get the idea. 

Rough Sketches: 
All pen and ink. 

This book was silkscreened, letter-pressed and hand sewn.
