Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

    These layouts are great. I love those old photos. I can’t even imagine digging into those to do layouts. I’m scared… LOL… I agree with Vanessa. You should use those layouts for the challenge because it will put you ahead of the game to be able to buy more products. LOL…
