I had a weblog once. It was, to put it simply, THE weblog to end all weblogs.

Photograph of a Paris street from a Best Western hotel window. For real. Tagline: libre y suavemente

Uh-oh. Now I want Donut Plant doughnuts.
Canon PowerShot. PS4.
This someecards blog post (“Person giving away kittens has never heard of kittens”) was so entertaining, I just had to make a graphic-y quote to frame in a white 9” x 9” shadowbox IKEA frame:
Words to live by.
Some fun in Illustrator, for once, creating lettering for a website that was canned. I may end up using the idea to create a font.
Ai4, PS4 to showcase.
