I haven’t abandoned you!

My blog is not dead, I just moved across the world and am slowly but surely settling in to my new job and my new city that has zero street art. #gasp

I am writing to you from Abu Dhabi in the UAE and I wish I could post all kinds of pictures of the graffiti I have seen so far…but all I got is this from the Palm Islands in Dubai:

IMG_7799…which I can’t even read yet. But I am taking Elementary Modern Standard Arabic so maybe in a few months!

Also, the billboards here are GIANT and teeming with potential…


In the meantime, for those of you in the US, this CFP is awesome and you should go to the conference for sure:

Until next time, xoxo Jess
