Art + Design + I Design Stuff

Where I work.

    It’s funny, I just used my xyron for a project this morning, and was thinking about how no one talks about them anymore, even though they’re great!

    Awesome! You’re style is enviable, really!! I saw one of your book jacket designs at the Barnes and Noble…”How to be Single” I think it was! So cool.
