Summer Request Post


Requests [open]

Because I haven't done one of these in a while...leave a comment, and I'll make you some icons. ♥
If you're requesting stock, feel free just to name a subject you'd like; for anything else, please include a couple of screencaps.

For 20inspirations' Wonderland theme. My goal here was to start with the familiar visual vocabulary that defines the US, and then twist things just askew enough to create a parallel country -- one that's both recognizable and slightly alien, where the broad strokes of the landmarks remain, but the colors have shifted, the clocks tick backwards, and nothing is exactly quite the nostalgic vision you expect. I've also included a playlist of songs I listened to while making these: would love to hear what you think!

Ships are launching from my chest. Some have names but most do not. If you find one, please let me know what piece I've lost.Collapse )

There's a place at your table with my name on. When we walk they roll the carpet out at our feet. And when we talk they gather around in chairs on the street 'cause we're the kings of imagining things.Collapse )
