    there's something amazing about natinoal geographic magazines from the 1970s and 1980s. the photography is amazing, and i especially love the in-depth reports and photo essays of rural mountain-towns and the people within. don't front, you know theyr'e great. the people in them are great to draw, too.

    whenever you're in art class and you're bored, pick up an NG and start looking through it. chances are you'll find more interesting things to use in yoru creations than you'd care to have all at once.

    i used to have an impressive collection dating way back, thanks
    to my gramps, but sadly the majority of them got filthy with a serious
    mold problem i had at this shit hole house that had a flooded
    basement. many insane photos were lost. i used to cut up
    national geographics for collage.

    My father has been collecting since the 1960's. We have a pretty decent collection in the basement. I read the National Geographic every month, normally. Lately, though, I've been three months behind. We just got the new issue delivered to our home a few days ago.

    National Geographic gets much love.

    My grandfather has a collection that he has had running for a while, they were nice to look through on the trips up there when I was younger. I've got a subscription now, but they haven't gotten me an issue since my last address change. Bastards.

    The big ass books they used to put out (may stil) are cool too. I have one detailing China & the surrounding areas. Can't say enough about the photos.

    there was one from 1979 about the discovery of King Tut.
    I read that thing over and over for many years of my youth.

    i'm focused moreso on the towns you'd never think exist and the ways of life of the people inside them. forget underage tribal porn for a minute. when was the last time you saw a burly man standing proud with speargun in hand, trusty dog at his side, and a "keep on whaling" t-shirt? i'm talking about the people who invented the trucker hat, trend-sters.
