When people ask me if I always knew that I wanted to be a graphic designer, I say "absolutely."
I think back on the greeting cards, posters, dioramas and other collateral that my parents probably have in a Klein's box on some shelf in the dark.
One of these things resurfaced a few years ago... it's The "Catolouge" (catalog)
Elena and I made this when we were 10 (?) years old.
She kept it all these years, and passed it back to me on a big birthday.
She & I were 2 of a kind.
While most girls were playing Barbies, we were having important meetings to map out a plan for our product empire.
We imagined a life that was filled with things of luxury and convenience.
We poured all our wishes and enthusiasm into this catalog.
We were very detail-oriented.
Each item had a name, a description, and usually listed the materials it was made from.
The misspelling of the word "Reclining" has given us the giggles even to this day.
If I had only known that someday, through knowing Elena, I'd marry a man in the plastics biz...
this also doubles as a sex swing...
(it was the 70's)
This would be a top-seller if it was available today.
El, do we have the patents on any of this stuff??
Here's where you would snuggle up with David Cassidy or in my case, Apollo from Battlestar Gallactica.
What do YOU wanna be when you grow up?
