Gimme the Keys

Doesn’t this piece by Julia Seizure at Hong Kong’s Star Crossed Tattoo remind you of the good old days? You know, pre-recession era (because everyone just had burlap satchels of gold doubloons instead of worthless American dollars), when traveling from New York to Los Angeles (or Missouri to Oregon) would take 30 years, and half of your party would die of dysentery, and several babies would be born by the time you got there, and people just rode around on murderous bears like it was the thing to do? Ah…memories.

More shots, after the jump.
