recently i accidentally spent too much money on a piece of art since i misread the price. as a result of that, i decided i would figure out a more clear purpose and intent behind purchasing art. i decided that art i'd buy in the future would somehow personify each of my friends.
so, my roommate recently started dj'ing for the first time at a specific venue using the pseudonym "Mr J." I'm not 100% sure if he meant the J to refer to the j in joker but, anyway, after i dropped him off I came back to the apt and layered the area above his table with joker cards so he would have a neato surprise for whenever he got back.
he also had a specific image set as his facebook profile image so i found the original image (a card from a french card game), found some obscure store online, waited for the mail and framed it for him.
for that moment in time and perhaps all future times, my roommate will be the joker.
would you personify people you know and what would they be
