I took my first holiday in four years this summer. I feel like I should have done something monumental, but instead, I mostly just made stuff and read stuff. I’m pretty happy about it.
I’ve been so busy, I completely abandoned blog posts for six months. In that time, I went to ten different countries, bought a motorbike and learned to ride it, and made a few websites.
Argentina is most definitely still in holiday-mode: it’s summer vacation here, a good number of the shops still have their shutters closed, and everyone who can afford to is off on the beaches of Uruguay. I’ve been working a lot more than I’d like to admit the last two weeks. Technically I still have a […]
I love type, but I find that most days, I don’t get much of a chance to really play with it like I like to. I miss the luxury of school (anything that costs more than a pair of Louboutins is a luxury), where we’d be given typography assignments that let us play around with […]
So if you’ve been anywhere within a ten-mile radius of me anytime in the last week and a half, you’re probably well aware of The Big Card Project. I took it upon myself to design a set of six macabre Valentines, thinking it’d be a a fun little project that’d get me away from the […]
After all the hectic-ness and flurry of activity that was the big website launch, I took a whole day off for the first time in ages. I curled up with a blanket and read a good hundred or so pages of The Master and Margarita (which I highly recommend), then went out to a Christmas […]
I seem to go through phases of rapid development, followed by periods of stasis. I just realized, after having worked 35 hours in the past 3 days, that I’m in a “rapid development” phase. Or I’m just working so much that I can’t help but pick up things faster. Anyway, new projects! WordPress theme for […]
I’ve had the craziest last-little-while: personally, professionally, otherwise. I took my first vacation in years and disappeared into the Mayan jungle for a week, and I’ve just recently returned from just shy of a full month spent on-the-road, living out of suitcases and backpacks and the trunk of my car. It’s been utterly fabulous–exhausting and […]
but apparently I’m not. I’ve actually had “update website” on my to-do list for the last three or four weeks. In the past week it’s actually been upgraded to “update website PLEASE” and “for the love of EVERYTHING, UPDATE WEBSITE ALREADY”. I’m starting to suspect it might be easier to switch over from my custom-built […]
Well, it’s been a long, long, long time in the making, but I’ve finally updated my portfolio a teeny little bit (not too much to be overwhelming, of course!) There’s this portrait of my gorgeous little sister: and a “new” website (that was completed months ago). I really don’t like updating my own website! But […]
