I’m going to take this as a sign that the KodakKerouacs and all of our photographic fabulousness was just too much for New York City to handle.
Hurricane Sandy is hurling through the East Coast as we speak. Rather, as I type. I hope everyone was able to get out safe and sound. If you are staying put because you honestly think you can go up against a hurricane, then I hope you can swim.
If you remember per our last post, Valerie spent the weekend in NYC attending a photo conference. She had a flight home Sunday that was cancelled or delayed or something. I’m unsure because when I asked her if she was able to get out of the city before the hurricane the only response I got was:
“Renting a car. Driving back. Ugh”
This was yesterday afternoon and she was slated to work this morning. I know she got back safe, but I don’t know any thing else from how the weekend was, or what time she got back. I’m sure she’s in bed right now, passed out from the fun and excitement of the conference, and the thrill of fleeing from the city. But she’s back safe and as soon as she gets her proper 16 hours of sleep, she’ll be writing a post of her adventures and how she landed us a book deal (Hopefully. I mean, I still haven’t had a good talk with her. For all I know, she skipped the photo conference and partied on the upper east side with Jake Gyllenhaal all weekend).
” Where have you guys been?”
“What have you been doing?”
“Are you ALIVE?”
“Or do you just like to ignore us??”
Calm down people. Below lies the questions to all of your answers. And some giggles too.
So, we’ve just changed our whole book proposal idea around, upside down, sideways, back ways, and every which way. And we have nine days left to create it.
Maybe I should give you some background information.
We haven’t been online much lately (our bad) because we’ve been CREATING A BOOK PROPOSAL. AHHHHH!!!!!
Exciting isn’t it? And damn stressful too. We’re creating a book proposal to send to publishers so they can see how awesome our art is and publish us. Yay!
A proposal consists of explaining what your book is about, why they should publish you, how the world cannot survive another minute without a book like yours, and a few sample chapters.
The proposal needs to express:
-how serious we are about ourselves (Oh dear)
-how passionate we are about our work (We make love to it every night)
-how individual our book will be (We’ve honestly never met anyone like us. Really. Not even close.)
-how awesomely talented we are (Andy Warhol is quite jealous in his crypt)
But of course, the KodakKerouacs being who we are, we have decided to change the entire format of our book design and proposal. And we have nine days to write it out, design it and print it.
Well, Confucius say the path to success is lined with empty coffee cups and bloodshot eyes.
