Limited Edition Zine & Print Series
My good friend Sean Woolsey recently released a limited edition zine which portrays his film photography gathered while on a summer long road trip with his wife Sarah – titled “A Record of Time: A Journal of Wanderlust”. I recommend you get one of the zines or his photo prints (on wood) HERE.
I was able to do a short write up on the piece, which you can read most of below:
It wasn’t long after SoCal-based artist, designer, and craftsman Sean Woolsey (already a CH favorite) came across a quote by American author John Green, that he and his wife bought a 1987 VW Westfalia van and took off on a road trip around the US. The quote (from the book “Looking for Alaska”) read, “You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.” Those words are nothing short of haunting for anyone progressing into their late 20s. Most people have felt it, but the true dilemma is what to do about it.
For Woolsey and his wife—both independent designers—the balance of leveraging their creativity as both a passion and a profession is difficult. So, in an effort to recalibrate their creative energy, they took their van to the one place they have always found inspiration: Nature.
