For the few: a sneak peek at the work in progress. This is merely a tiny sketch (about business card size, folded) for the sake of layout, mind– (Who knows what the end result will look like?) There is much to design and draw! Time for such undertakings still a few weeks off– But rest assured, it will be fancy.
(I’m just excited to work on it in earnest, and also rather enjoying the new camera. Plus I’ve nothing else to report save w o r k .)
While I’m at it, and it’s late, and I’ve finally finished work for the night; rambling a little– can I just say how I love the tag cloud? For it seems to me a concise visual reference of prioroties– at least in terms of what I write about here– size being relevant to repetition… [I don’t suspect it says much in a direct life sort of way, else there’d be lots of names there– or at least things like family, friends, clients, etc– but it’s not my lot to be specific in public on such matters as others’ lives, save –at most– in their least-private intersections with my own.]
Anyway. It’s fun to click something and see what the hell comes up.

Books arrived in the post today:
– The Mysterious Benedict Society & the Perilous Journey, by Trenton Lee Stewart (and this time illustrated by fellow gig-posterer, Diana Sudyka–look her up)
– The Summer Book, by Tove Jansson (of Moomin fame and adoration)
– The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, by Reif Larson (discovered amid map research– and, fellow Brooklynite.)
Joyousness of summer reading! I long for it–

Holyshit. I just was looking at what was happening in my life last year in May (part of what I’ve found useful about blog), and found this entry. Well, what comes around goes– repetitions: rediscovery of animation via jobs, reading first Mysterious Benedict book, return of iced coffee, plans for a calendar… Not much of a holyshit, really, but It is intriguing.
