This is leftover from a fire of The Internet Archive on Clement Street (ironically presumed electrical in nature). Alas, it caused a lot of damage to the lovely Taishan Cafe, which has since relocated across the street as The Claypot House.

When the charred structure was pulled down, this vintage sign for Vess Cola was revealed. The company is even still in business, although it caters more to the St. Louis, Missouri area where it's manufactured. The cream flavor comes in an unusual shocking pink color! The building next to it was built in 1922, so one can assume that the painted art is even older than that.

“I am a little church (no great cathedral)
far from the splendor and squalor of hurrying cities
⎯ I do not worry if briefer days grow briefest,
I am not sorry when sun and rain make April."
- E. E. Cummings

I think I'm overdue for some more HALLOWEEN icons, ne?

Ya know, I kinda wish I had that "Hello Kitty" song now. You think you're immune to cute and then you see something like this, and wonder why the hell it couldn't exist in your country or if silly stuff like this could be the cure to bring us a few steps closer to world peace.

Then again, I still stand by my fervent belief, that Miss Kitty is out for world domination. But what a cuddly, fluffy domination it would be!!

This took time - scanned & edited from my personal paper supplies of donated goods, paid bounty, and found scrap.
Perfect for: creative bursts, school, Nanowrimo, and killing with cuteness!

Painstakingly scanned from my own stash of Japanese illustrations and made in honor of the very same country who concurred cuteness!

No obligation, but if you feel so inclined, I would ♥ to receive a "Help Japan" V-gift from the LJ shop (and we'll know the ¥ went to charity). Mostly though, I hoped to make people smile.

100x100 bits of art celebrating the diversity of sexuality, intending to titilate as well as amuse. In the realm of fantasy, everything is game. Warning: some are actually safe for work.

Note: Apologies for delay in posting, but it was tremendous work to put these together on a new computer! *see earlier posts re: tech. difficulties
