Fireworks! Sparklers! Air conditioning! All things we indulged in this 4th of July, though, while the Macy's fireworks display is pretty awesome, it is not nearly as rad as the festive shirts the folks behind Lumi made for Independence Day. Hard to believe the fireworks on this sweet unitard were printed solely with sunlight, but, it's true! 

While Jessie and Stephen were busy printing shirts with the sun, Breanne from Nails in the Key of Life came down to the Big Apple to show us firsthand that her project isn't just about getting your nails done. It's about creating an "intimate platform to exchange ideas and conversation." Spending the afternoon with Breanne, we spoke about the nature of art in the new millennium, how a nail is as much a blank canvas as a, err, blank canvas, and how the simple act of painting one's nails creates a unique bond between manicure-ee and the manicurist.

If yes, you are probably awesome. If not, click play again.

      Answer: Yes, yes we are unicorns. We fart rainbows. Should be an awesome year with two art cars and a camp maze to see. Check it out, contribute, and participate with us. WOOT!!!
