I always thought nordstrom was for rich people :/

Maybe it always was and I just am remembering it wrong. From my childhood I always thought the store hierarchy went something like:

You think there aren’t enough people in the world with this much money to make these businesses viable, but there ARE and it’s WEIRD

  • High end brand name boutiques (Alexander McQueen store, D&G store, Prada store)

Department stores for the rich and the famous

  • Saks 5th, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales

Anthropologie, Free People

  • this shit floats between these two categories, really. Sometimes they carry things that are ridiculously expensive, but it’s never “$7k polyester dress I once saw at Saks 5th Av’s San Francisco Union Square location” expensive. 

Department stores for the rather comfortably middle class

  • Macy’s, Nordstroms, Loehmanns

Modcloth and its similars

  • It’s really expensive sometimes and fairly cheap sometimes. 

“Department” stores for the middle class on a budget

  • Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls - I was told growing up that Target was the best of this bunch

Stores mostly everyone can buy a thing in

  • Walmart
  • Stores in strip malls that carry unbranded clothes and really sketchy unboxed $10 perfumes. Excellent source of $7 booty shorts. 

I have absolutely no idea how accurate this list is really.

I forgot to really push this, I didn’t realize you could look at sample pages! This is from the freelance children’s storybook I wrote for Farfaria app  Ben Franklin & The Kiteboard, it has such cute art (look at his little legs) done by mollystormjackson you should go check out their other work they do really nice stuff!

If you have any young siblings check out getting a Farfaria subscription for your ipad there’s over 800 stories on there it’s pretty neat and there’s a lot of great artists doing stuff for them. Pitching a few more simple stories soon since they’re curbing back on holiday themed assignments. But ya go check out Molly’s work!

“Let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings extinct Megafauna of the past look down on us from those stars.”

Well I spend a good chunk of time the past couple days creating a pattern of sparkly Megafauna in the sky. No regrets!!!

Apologies to anyone who actually studies or knows things about prehistoric animals. I just cherry-picked the ones I wanted to draw.

Featured: Irish Elk, Smilodon, Glyptodon, Wooly Mammoth, Paraceratherium

I could draw extinct mammals forever, they’re so strange and fascinating!!!
