It is all I do Right Now

Over the past couple of weeks I've added a few new files to activeden (the stock flash website I sell a my flash bits on). The most notable is a full website/ image gallery called Sideways. The name comes from the way you scroll sideways to view the gallery (mouse wheel supported).

There's a ton more activeden files that I'm pursuing between early hours and late nights (both HTML and Flash). In fact in a weeks time you'll be able to own a wordpress blog just like this one if you'd like I just need to polish up a few final touches and bugs.

All I do seems to be work though. I mean there's a few ours with the kids and a few with Susan at night, but the bulk of my time is spent designing and coding these days. I'm just considering this the season of hard work though. On a recent project runway Lauren Hutton said (I paraphrase), "that she wasn't the best because of her raw talent, but because she worked four times harder than any one else." And I'm certainly not the most hard working—there are plenty people out there that work longer hours and hard jobs than me. But when people ask me what I do for fun or if I did anything over the weekend or the night before the first thing into my mind is I worked on this file or that project. Unlike my friends' response: "I went skiing on Saturday, or snowshoeing with my kids..."

I'll get there. Right now I'm just trying to secure an out or a security blanket if I need to find new work or want to go freelance full-time again.

Feel free to check out the new file or you can check out this versions I threw on the web to highlight our trip to hawaii we took a few months back (see I guess it's not all work). Ha.

PRINT: Did You Think to Pray

Susan and I recently teamed up once again to create a new "Church Print". For the this print we saved up our pennies and purchased the font Carmen and Carmen Fiesta from Type Republic in Barcelona (as a designer getting a new font is pretty exciting, and it's tough when you actually do buy one because they're not a small purchase—I've book marked plenty of fonts in my days and many fonts I'm sure I'll never own because they can add up pretty fast, but they're worth it).

We both thought the Carmen typeface looked smart and would work perfect for the phrase "Did you think to pray". The print comes in loads of colors and both Susan and I have discussed doing a limited edition larger print (think poster size), but first I guess we'll see how is sells.

If you're looking to bring a little "holy spirit" into your home head over to Susan's store.

LAUNCHED: VitaBrevisFilms


Just wrapped this project. VitaBrevisFilms is the video/ motion studio of Skylar Nielsen photography. They do some pretty fancy video work and I have to admit that it was really nice to work with everybody there. See it live on the WWW here.

Year of the Ox


The latest addition to Susan's print line is 12 zodiac prints. Since this is the year of the Ox I thought I'd showcase it. This one was actually printed on Eames Canvas paper for our friend Young (she threw a big lunar new year party last weekend that was fantastic).
