When I’m not working on textile designs or random d.i.y. projects, I sometimes freelance for Pottery Barn Kids. This week is one of those times. I used to work there full-time, so it’s a familiar trek from my apartment to the Oakland BART stop (the west coast version of the subway), across the bay to the 16th and Mission stop, and then through the Mission neighborhood to the office. This morning I had my camera with me, and snapped a few photos on my way. There are days when the Mission – with all it’s urban grime and chaos – feels a bit much at 9 a.m., but this morning what I noticed was all the color. There is paint everywhere. Even the graffiti is graffiti’d. Here are a few photos. I’m hoping to get a project post up this week, but I may be putting in some long hours at the cuteness factory, so it might not happen til next week.
