Animal Postcards

These animal postcards from the MOMA shop are so fun. I love how each animal has been so elegantly abstracted down to its most essential shape. The resulting designs are clean, simple, and whimsical.

I Want a Dog

Italian Greyhound

Someday, I’d really like to have a dog.

This doesn’t have anything to do with my pursuit of the creative life, except maybe that I’ve decided that in my ideal creative future, a dog must be included.

I realize that I may be romanticizing dog ownership, but doesn’t it seem so nice? A dog is like a friend who’s always glad to see you. A dog is always there for you.

That said, I also understand that having a dog, like having a child, involves a lot of responsibilities. Which would probably not be practical for me to take on right now, given that I’m sort of in the middle of a career change, and that I have no idea where I’ll end up living long-term. There’s also the fact that I’ve never had a dog before.
