coffee break

10:53 AM

dear design brain,

please focus. the semester is almost done. it is not time to hibernate.
please wake up from your half-asleep slumber. 
please create. better.


Why am I so UNCREATIVE lately?
time for a break; a breather; a refreshment.

off to villabella with shawn & our macs.


this is not a blast, it is a PSA.

if it makes you feel more powerful and happier with yourself, and your situation to blast me on the internet, then i hope you feel better. just remember that a person who cannot control their mouth, cannot control their world, and that unhappiness comes from within, and from personal choices; not from outside sources.

please think about those harsh words that come from anger. it is impossible to know the damage being caused by being so selfish and so hurtful; [your] sanctimonious nature is unwelcome with me. this situation is not about me, but about you, and your own choices.  you are not the victim, but a key player.

if you want things to end, simply walk away. if i am your scape goat, i'll expect a thank you.



[she] just doesn't cease to amaze me with her immaturity. the only person she hurts is herself; while the rest of us laugh over coffee. i win; you lose.

pumpkin pie

a little daydream
Holy Moly, Me oh My, you're the apple of my eye
Girl aint never loved one like you
Man o Man your my best friend I scream it to the nothingness
that we got everything we need
Hot and Heavy pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy Jesus Christ
Ain't nothin please me more than you
well there's somethin I never told you bout that night
what didnt you tell me?
well, while you were sitting in the back seat smokin a cigarrette you thought was gona be your last, I was fallin deep, deep in love with you, and I never told you till just now! 
Home, let me come home, home is whenever I'm with you.

michael eckersley // i heart you

tonight i had the pleasure of attending a seminar-chit-chat with michael eckersley - who is an interactive design principle and a pretty cool guy. my job is about what is going to happen, not what has happened. He was fabulous, and I feel somewhat more inspired than i was earlier. watch a sweet video here.

"the things that irritate you, anger - or dissatisfaction at the very least - play such an important role in motivating what we do [as designers]." //marc newson

winter is to colds; colds are to bad
i feel a cold coming on, so i am medicating myself with my vitaminwater zero, complete with airborn tablet, and i just finished a zicam. side note: orange flavor is a-o.k.

quick illustrations of the last week

and on a final note:

remember to be like a child - they get toys like this!
