wow haha. first post since April. Apparently I’ve been on some serious hibernation. Anyways, this is my second year volunteering as a mural artist for New York Cares Day. Ohhh boy I had soooooo much fun this year. Second time’s a charm!

 

-Caitlin and Matt concentrating on the painting!

 

 

-Riva and her big outdoor wall

 

-3rd floor Gym wall and ground floor hallway (my fav)

 

-Snowmen and Angry birds!!

 

Apart from supervising and designing murals/canvas paintings for volunteers to paint, I got to run up and down 3 flights of stairs 20+ times. Probably lost 3 lbs in the process. YAY! Can’t wait for next year! (Go Team Strong!)

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Today Every Little Tiny Thing got a facelift. Yay.

Typeface based on yesterday’s post. I’m calling it The Floating Penguin


*What made me happy today: it’s not going to rain tomorrow!

The day I’ve been waiting for has finally come. The Brooklyn Book Festival ’09!!!!!!!! YAY I love books. There were 166 publishers in total. I wish we had this every month. (Sorry for some grainy photographs)
all

So these are books, flyers, bookmarks, leave-behinds and whatnot I got from the festival. Some are nicely designed (love) and some are blehhhhh. There are more on my table. Apparently I’m a clepto.

mbp_flyer

This I like. A typographic flyer of all the title they were selling today from Mark Batty Publisher. It’s a silkscreen! nice yes?

books

Because I like their flyer I bought 2 books from them. They are graphic illustrations by Noma Bar. I don’t know why I didn’t know anything about him until now. Where was I??!?? His works are out of this world. He reminds me of Charles Goslin.

This is so cute. A free T-shirt I got from C-SPAN booth. It came in a shape of a bus.

summerspace

Lastly, food street map. Say food and information design and I’m there. It achieved some level of success because I had no problem finding my food.

What made me happy today: of course, the book festival

help

…and he cried out, “help help….. help”. But no one heard

What made me happy today: new leaf shaped snack plates

Something I can relate to.

From writer Erik Proulx and director Marc Colucci: Lemonade Movie.

“More than 70,000 advertising professionals have lost their jobs in this “Great Recession.” Lemonade is about what happens when people who were once paid to be creative in advertising are forced to be creative with their own lives.”

What made me happy today: Grilled chicken sandwich and fries with a lot of pepper

money

Old, worn, torn, and missing a part. Just like us. Human
(a $20 bill I got from the ATM yesterday)

sunflower

The Death Clock will remind you just how short life is.
(My dying sunflower from “DAY 4”)

*What will make me happy today: getting my iMac back

boring
Nothing exciting has happened in the longest time.
Everything is just plain boring.

allergy copy

This is what I’m feeling right now. Cranky. I NEED SOME COLOR. 

* What made me happy today: Good Humor ice cream sandwich bars
