After two small breakdowns (from me feeling like I have nothing to show for working a year at a job that didn't particularly give me much design experience, moving here, not having a job, getting low on money and gaining weight), I woke up this morning and felt SO much better.

I put in a full day of working on business cards and portfolio. I contacted a gallery called Design Huis to work part time during Dutch Design Week (which is next week... and I noticed that someone hasn't bought their plane ticket yet, COUGH Chris COUGH) and no joke, a minute after I sent the email, I got a call back asking me to come in on Saturday. Excellent.

I have lots of stories to tell. I hope I get to it tonight somewhere after I go for a run and make stew, and between painting portraits of pigeons and crows.

Paris and things

Hey folks! It's been two weeks but I haven't forgotten about this blog thing. I've just been busy with illustrations, portfolio making and hanging with my mom.

We're in Paris right now, enjoying four days of walking, shopping, museums and food. I'm testing my body's capacity to pile on pounds. So far, so good. I do miss my collar and hip bones though... I'll find those later.

It's my mom's birthday today, wish her a good one!
