class of 2010

sneak peek of our class photo session...
this is the edited shot that will hang in the lobby of our portfolio show.
crazy ones will be posted later (they are pretty funny... :( though not edited yet)
plaid theme!....

spring shoes yo

My new favorite shoes for spring and summer.
Swedish-style wooden clog sandals.
It's interesting how a pair of new shoes will make you feel better, I found them when I was having a bad day a few weeks ago. They were $30 off at Nordstrom Rack :)

they can be found here for more money

secret urban trail

dane and i just found and amazing and beautiful wilderness trail through the middle of capitol hill! it's at the end of 19th street - which turns into a foresty drive - with a random trail-head off to one side that goes up a big gulf. along the main trail there are sub trails that kind of look like homeless people trails... we found discarded pillows, blankets, condoms.... - and possibly a body(dead?) in a sleeping bag. it was pretty exciting.

here come the cards!

self branding...
so i think this is the winning design for my personal business cards.
the color might change... and it would be cool to letterpress the information side, we shall see...
