smile, it's friday!

i love this photo. saul steinberg, the american cartoonist and illustrator for the new yorker magazine loved creating these satirical paper bag masks during the 1960's...talk about great cocktail hour antics!
i find them fun, curious and completely amazing. i wonder whether or not he designed a look for people in particular, or whether or not the masks were drawn, at gatherings and parties and people just grabbed them at random? i'd love to be able to ask him!

how is your weekend looking? i'll be behind my computer most of the weekend as i continue toward my graduate thesis deadline (next month! ah!). i hope you are doing something more fun than that ;) enjoy!
