    Chinese poem

    Ever go somewhere that you haven't been to for a really long time? Doesn't it bring back memories, both good and bad, that make you celebrate that place? Well Du Fu did in a poem called Traveling Again and I'm going to have to agree with him.

    With the rise in popularity with poker or the long history and mythology of playing cards, motifs using spades, aces, jacks, and kings have rose in distribution. We designers will always be influenced by these shifts in culture, whether intentionally or not, and I was the other day. I was just thinking about what I should make and I came up with a king motif.

    Ever people watch? How about people draw? I sort of invented it today. Its a mix between life drawing, people watching, and being a ninja. :) Today I tried to people draw at the DMV and found that its kind of hard.

    Making resumes is an art. You have to be professional, creative, reserved, and unique. So I guess its hard too. Well, today, after seeing so many friends starting to make resumes, I decided to try and make one myself.

    Ever travel to new worlds while drawing? I have. I begin in front of a piece of paper, pencil in hand, and next thing I know, I'm drawing something else I would have never thought other wise.

    To balance the yin and the yang of yesterday's post on simplicity, I decided to make a post today on complexity. See what I made.

  • Simplicity

    M drop cap

    There will always be a time for a design that needs to be busy, detailed, and ellaborate but sometimes you just need something simple. Today's drop cap is one of those times.
