What comes after triple monitors?

Thursday, August 28, 2008 at 2:08 AM
What I wouldn't do for the above setup.

I am currently working on one of my laptops which is dually connected to my flat screen monitor and I'm watching TV on my other laptop.

I am officially ridiculous.

Downtime Tutorials

Further branding and website theme inspiration through Abduzeedo tutorials. I tried my hand at light painting using part of this tutorial. Pretty nifty.

I have a really frequent habit of getting blogmatized. It's a little better than being dickmatized, but it burns a lot less calories. I've been reading the blog of one Leonidas. Says he,

"I'm 24, from Athens, Greece, currently living in London, UK. I'm interested in intimacy, (male) nudity, sexuality and personal spaces. I only work with film, colour. I also use my sx-70 polaroid a lot."

Anyhow, I find peoples' lives astounding and intruiging (especially other artists and actors), and I've been reading his blog "cover to cover" as it were.

I really dig his photography. And I want to make a shirt like the one above. I'll save my discussions about my fashion aspirations for a future post.

American Apparel Sheer T-shirt

Saturday, August 16, 2008 at 7:18 PM

Very versatile sheer t-shirt from American Apparel. I wouldn't just wear it alone like bachelor number one up there (at least until I get some 6 pack abs), but I think it would be great for layering or wearing under a cardigan. I'm definitely getting one of these, but I cant decide on which color.

I'll probably end up getting all of them, because I am ridiculous.

Boo to "Luau Carly"

My great friend Carly is in Hawaii and she sent me this using her phone. Jealousy!

And So It Begins

Tuesday, August 12, 2008 at 11:52 PM

I've done 250 of these components so far.

Remember this? If you don't (you don't) let me refresh: I'm designing wedding invitations for my friend Amelia and her fiancee Joe (not me) and we have gone through months of edits, text changes, mother's changes, more mother's changes, more more mother's changes- and now we're here!

They are inviting around 170 people (all with at least 1 "plus one"- that's a lot of people!) and thusly, I'm hand making around 170 invitations. See, that sounds tough doesn't it. But get this- Each invite has 4 separately cut printed components, printed labels, backing sheets that need to be cut, ribbons that need to be cut, wrists that need to be cut...

It turns out that when I'm done with them I will have cut 170 x 6 components to = 1,020 components in all, 4,080 (or therearounds) slices of the exacto. Crazy!

Anyway, I'm keeping track of how long it takes me so that when I charge another wedding invite client, I know I'm getting my money's worth. So, its really a good thing in the end. And think of the ice breaker I have at the wedding! "Hey, you know the invite you got in the mail that was absolutely gorgeous? Yeah, all me baby. Here's my card."

Random Model of the Day

Some random dude from the t-shirt website, Design by Humans. I'm only posting this cause my exact words when I opened saw him this morning were "I mean damn!"

My coworkers are used to my outbursts, I imagine.

What I'm Wearing Today

The Smooth Company at ShopStyle

I've decided to do this when I feel I'm wearing a cute outfit. That is all.

Beautiful Blasphemy

Thursday, August 7, 2008 at 11:55 PM
I have been seeing this cover all over fashion blogs recently and every time I have to pause, cause I just love it so. From Pop Magazine - which can get Agyness Deyn and Naomi Campbell to model for them, but can't hire a web designer to make a website past their myspace page (!?!)- September 2008. My first issue as art director comes out soon, so I have my eyes open extra extra wide.

Red? What's Red?

Ever wonder what it was like to be colorblind? Color + design blog has an interesting article (complete with pictures like this Warhol here) of what 7% of men and 0.4% of women in the US and elsewhere see every day.

That being said, I like the color palette of the color blind. I may even do a piece of art with it.

All I Need is a Tux...

Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at 11:13 PM

I bought a bowtie! A real, tie it yourself one too. It's a terrible picture for actually SEEING the bowtie.... I think I need to locate a place in my house that actually supports light, my bedroom is on the bottom floor, and light is sparse. Maybe one day I'll take a picture in the brilliance of day when I wear it out.

I'm definitely wearing it in November, My friend Carly and I are going to go see the Washington National Opera's production of Carmen at the Kennedy Center. Denyce Graves is starring. Apparently she happens to be one of the best opera singers on earth. Awesome.

I have no idea how Fred Astaire found a bowtie for guys with necks as big as his waist, But I want to try this sometime... It most likely would have to be that exact outfit in order to not look ridiculous.

Oh, Anderson.

I was watching the silver fox on Regis and Kelly and amongst his favorite shows are:
  • Flipping Out
  • Project Runway
  • Talk Soup
  • Living Lohan, and
  • Denise Richards: Its Complicated,
    which he calls "Denise Richards Colon Its Complicated"
Like... I'm not saying he's gay or anything...

I'm just saying I watch the exact same shows, and therefore we should watch them cuddling in bed together. While I apply "Touch of Grey" to his scalp.
