Contact Sheet

Someone asked of I would put together a contact sheet with versions of a project for review. As I was pulling it together I thought about the term “contact sheet.” I know that a contact sheet is a photo created in the darkroom where the strips of film make contact with the photo paper. I’ve made plenty of real contact sheets.

I thought about the kids today with their photoshop and their fancy computers who have no idea what some of the tools of my trade are or how they originated.

When I die at my desk (because I’ll be working the rest of my life to put two kids through college) they’re going to clean it out and say “my God, she used a lot of old timey art supplies” that’s after they dig through the thousands of Sharpies, of course

I bet you didn’t know that I own a first edition Gameboy. I bought it in 1989 at FAO Schwarz. Fun fact: I worked for them for 2 years. It wasn’t as fun as you’d think. The business of toys is just as cut-throat as the fashion industry. 

Back in the olden days it was a family owned company that eventually ran out of capital. It was bought and sold by a number of investors until it was finally swallowed up by Toys R Us. 

Working for a family owned company has some advantages, but there are many drawbacks, specifically when it comes to HR issues. That said, I am very proud off my accomplishments there and a small part of my legacy remains in the 5th Avenue store today. 

Anyway, 25 years later the Tetrus theme music still plays in my head whenever I see a game screen.

Too late for the early train, too early for the lat train GPOYW 

Also, probably the last time you’ll see these glasses. And they’re crooked. 

Made you look!
