Finished another  #notebook today. It was started 4/30/19 and today is 9/14/21. Day 273 at Atkins Global – Day 421 at Spiceworks. 

It began at a weight of 249.4g, and grew to the weight of 270.9g with the help of  #ink,  #flowers,  #postitnotes,  #sweat,  #hopes,  #frustration,  #bitsofstring, and lots and lots of plans and ideas.

January 1st of 2020 I decided to start writing down all of the good stuff that happened in the last pages, and work my way toward the wave of jagged little letters flowing in the opposite direction. I’m so glad I did. And I’m glad I kept going past the end of 2020. I could have never guessed how ironic it would feel to only write down the good stuff from years like the last two, or how glad I am that I did it, even when “woke up” was the only entry for the day. Not all the entries are “good things”, but I did my best to record the events that were also “for the better”.

I’m usually a little sad when this time comes; but I’ve got a strange little ray of hope blossoming in my chest. Not for any one thing, but maybe because I can put this book to rest? There isn’t a square inch left to mark on. I used it all up. I don’t know what’s coming, but I can feel the earth shifting under my feet, and I’ve got another book ready to keep track of it all.

Seems like there's a lot of people out there coughing for the wrong reasons. With our friend's health being priority  #1, we think it's a good idea to push back our kite-sesh to a day when things have calmed down a little.

Getting High with the Lightbulb Exchange is being postponed; we will begin the refund process in the next few days.

Keep an eye out for updates and other goings on. We've got some big stuff coming!

Please stay safe, wear a mask, get vaccinated, and listen to Steve Miller Band.

In the past year, my friend @_itsamelthing and I teamed up to mix art direction, design and photography to produce some pretty dope postcards. We have launched a collaborative Etsy store (link in bio and below), so you can shop online!

It was a fun and gratifying experience working with Melissa, and I hope we can collaborate on projects in the future. What a weird and wild year it was!

The Mood Mixtures Postcard Set (8 different designs) is a flavorful collection of postcards, featuring concoctions for all occasions and the key components that go into creating that special moment in one’s life.

Shave & a Haircut
It’s the end of the week, and work was the pits. What you need is a refesher, to ease your mind and sharpen your wits. Sit down, chin up; shave and a haircut; two bits!

This past year, my friend @_itsamelthing and I teamed up to mix art direction, design and photography to produce some pretty dope postcards for y’all. We have launched a collaborative Etsy store (link in bio and below), so you can shop online!✨

The Mood Mixtures Postcard Set (8 different designs) is a flavorful collection of postcards, featuring concoctions for all occasions and the key components that go into creating that special moment in one’s life. Over the next week or so, Melissa and I will be posting a card every other day, with a description of the special occasion in which the card might be sent. 

Some influential designers that came to mind while working on this project were @temi.coker & @djpentagram. Their use of playful textures, typography, and collage led us to pair our design styles with elaborate, groovy imagery and dramatic photo sets.
