Yes, like the Chicago song!
Every year I make this resolution to be an inspiration and to be inspired. For my last post of 2008, I want to share with you a website that has inspired me to become a better designer and take pride in my work.
The Touch Agency inspires me. I love how the work fills the whole page. It just shows that he does take pride in his work and isn't afraid to show it. There's even a clock on the page that tells real time!
Happy New Year to all of my friends and may you prosper in 2009!

A friend of mine stumbled upon Charmingwall and I have to say, I am in total awe. Charmingwall is a New York gallery specializing in a curated selection of open-edition fine art prints. The artists they represent come from diverse backgrounds, from traditional fine arts to comic book culture, but what they have in common is a gift for creating richly imaginative images.

The animation makes it fun to navigate and it is definitely charming! Check it out here.

In an attempt to add something interesting to my Facebook, I stumbled upon Unique Los Angeles. (I was looking for interesting groups to join ;). )The day before the Felt Club, I was in Corona, and due to the fires, some freeways were closed. So I see this as a second chance and I will hopefully find some awesome Christmas presents!

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the event brings together over 150 of the best designers, artists and merchants.

I went to the opening reception for Letters & Ligatures at Subliminal Projects in LA on Saturday, November 8th. It was a small venue, but the place got packed quick. I don't recall the liquor they had at the open bar, but I quickly got buzzed off of that! I've been a fan of House Industries for years and it was awesome to be there. Not to mention that this gallery is owned by Shepard Fairey. That's him on the ones and twos! It's not too late to check out the exhibit. It ends December 5th. Visit Subliminal Projects for more info.

I absolute love Veer because they love me back! Look what the UPS guy dropped off for me tonight. Just in case you're wondering what it is, it's a corduroy messenger bag. I took the photo with my photobooth. (That's why the fancy's backwards!) It came with a little note...
Awwww! Thanks Veer!
