do you ever make a huge scene and then march off to your bedroom but eventually you get hungry and you feel like you can’t leave your room because you want to prove a point or something
Catching Fire quotes by Suzanne Collins.
things that will always be beautiful:

- orange peels

Alana Bloom + Picasso
I decided to use cubism for Dr. Bloom. As someone who values logic and sets boundaries, she seems to work well with the sharp angles and sophisticated colours.

Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
