On starting a new blog...

Sorry for the whiplash in blog designs this week. I sort of liked my last design but it just wasn't feeling cohesive to me. I swear the hardest-to-please client I will ever have is myself!

I also decided to start a design blog more solely dedicated to my design work and creative entrepreneurial endeavors. I've had the URL saved for awhile and just got the urging this weekend to actually set it up!

The blog you're on now is not going away, don't worry. It'll still be as crazy and fun-filled as always. I just really wanted a calmer, more focused spot to display my designs and focus a bit more on the business side of being a graphic designer. So... hop on over and subscribe if that's something that interests you!


  1. I've been looking to change my blog theme this week, but I can't make up my mind, so I know how you feel! I can't design anything, so I have to go with a pre-made theme, although that doesn't make it any easier! I like what you've done here though. I'll check out your new blog asap!

  2. I am going to start playing with mine this weekend, I want to change it up and streamline it, it has too much extra;)

  3. I think I have an addicition to changing my blog around. I've changed it around so many times in the past year and a half. I think I have finally found something that will stick. Off to check out your design blog! :)

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.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

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 …
