new: ashley g “i’d rather be” prints

if ever an artist summed up both of my main desires these days, it would be ashley g. her new “i’d rather be sleeping” and “i’d rather be thrifting” prints seem to encapsulate my current urges with frightening accuracy. each of ashley’s prints come signed and are available in two sizes: 13″x19″ ($38) and 7.25″x11″ ($20). at this relatively early hour i’m going to go with “sleeping”, but later in the day when i start feeling antsy and want to find something new to inspire me, i have a feeling my inclination is going to tip towards thrifting. click here to check out both and make your choice…
