This is my latest entry for Threadless. I've always like the era of the 50's, and love is almost the best subject for a picture (don't deny it), so...no brainer? We all had that girl/boy that we had a crush on when we were young, that boy girl/boy we could never quite talk to without feeling awkward. I know childhood crushes rarely go anywhere, but I know a few people who had childhood sweethearts from a very young age, and they've been married 30+ years. In this day and age, they deserve a round of applause/applesauce.
I always try to incorporate a bit of humor in my work. Although the message of this one is "you know when it's love", love can be fun. It doesn't need to be serious ALL the time. When people become committed to a significant other, it seems (and this is purely from observation) that after they get married and have kids, it's all about making it in the long run, making it work so to speak.
That is so...sad. If/when I ever/do marry, I vow to never leave a moment dull. I guess the most appropriate question to ask would be "why would you settle with a person that would 'get old' to you after a while?" Indeed, humans are strange animals. You'd think that functional vocal chords and emotions would make it easier. If only we lived in such a world.
Hope you like this one. I loved switching it up a bit. I'm working on another piece as we speak, so I should be able to get that out before school starts up again. After that, I can't promise regular posts. Oh, well.
Final score: 2.41/5
