WHAT'S ON OUR WALLS
Wellcome Collection in London. I picked it up when my dad and I visited about three years ago. It was one of my favorite places we went there (so much to see that you would never expect), and I loved the art on this bag. It easily fit into the frame with no cutting, and now I can look at it easily. You can make art out of anything.
Venice last year, it was one of the places I dreamed of going to most. I read this book called The Thief Lord when I was in middle school, and fell in love with the idea of the city. The main character wore a mask like this, like the old plague doctors. When we visited, I had my heart set on finding a little mask just like his. The last day, I wandered into a mask shop, and they had a perfect little version. It felt like magic. Now he lives on our walls and looks over me.
