My friend, Michelle, is a damn genius.
She has ideas... lots of them. They're pretty fabulous ideas, too. Where most people feel complacent with a surface scratching review, article or art project for that matter, Michelle goes the extra 457 miles... or in this case, 31 miles.
There are 31 days in October, and Michelle is writing 31 unique blog posts on manhole covers. Did you know this is a thing? I never really gave it much thought... until Michelle sent me hunting. (I got car sick.) Collect photographs from people all over the world and curate blog posts? Easy. Anyone can do that.. Research, reach out to photographers, authors and find obscure books on the subject matter? Totally Michelle.
You should go take a look at all of the manhole covers I found..and while you're over there, look at all the stuff Michelle found... it's pretty great. Click here for Manhole Madness.
PS- A lot of people ask me where I get the stencils I sometimes use in my art.. the cool, graphic design inspired ones... those are Michelle too..you should poke around her shop while you're over there. Just saying....
