7 Things About Myself
  • I'm hoping to go back to school this fall to start an Associates in Graphic Design

  • I'm an INFP, which means I'm thoroughly introverted, a day-dreamer, and love to keep my options open.

  • My idea of a perfect day is waking up without an alarm, snuggling up with my cat, sipping a little coffee, and reading for hours on the couch.

  • The best place I've ever lived is Portland, Oregon. Someday I hope to move back.

  • I would love to travel... everywhere.

  • I'm a t.v. junkie. My guilty pleasures are Survivor, Gilmore Girls, & X-Files.

  • So far my 30's have been better than my 20's, if only because I have more confidence to reach for my dreams.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
