There is a lonely moment in the middle of all scenes, walking to the mailbox with the last month’s worth of health insurance claims in hand.
If you can understand this, you can build great stories. You build products, not apps nor features. You can erect kingdoms. If deepest empathy is yours, so are we.
The least lonely moment I’ve ever endured is when my best friend in college found my doctor’s card with our next appointment on my desk, and enveloped me in a hug I could never have asked for.
Sometimes, the universe shines. It sparkles. It glimmers with depth and glitters with superficiality.
Today is one of those days when the sun shines brightly with the air outside brisk. I feel the loneliness and alienation more palpably - they linger with me as I drop that innocently stuffed envelope into the mail.
Things may feel fragile, but we all have stuff we just gotta deal with.

I made these for Pinterest’s adorable Valentine’s Day campaign. Send one to someone you love. :)
I love campaigns like this, and making art for them even more. I only spent a Saturday afternoon (with Ash and Rebecca) working on these, but I can’t help but smile at the idea of making more lovey art!
the first one took me like four hours and the second one took me 20 minutes (no joke). two different styles, i suppose. i’m sick so not too much writing this week (zzzzzz).
my friend sent me this amazing gouache photoshop brush that i’ve been experimenting with at work (and the brush itself has been really well received - “did you do this by hand??” nope, wacom!). I have this idea for a print that I want to draw this weekend. I’m calling it “dear queen.”
"How’s work these days?"
"Uhhh.. I get to work with my heroes everyday, so I’d say… pretty effin’ good."

"If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original."
I feel that the lesson the universe keeps trying to send me is the things that scare me the most that I keep walking back into, even in that fearful dread (and tinge of excitement), are the wildcards that keep defining this winding little path.
Seems obvious, but hard to emotionally know until you’re ready to.
all novels, all poetry, are built on the
never-ending contest in ourselves of good and evil.
and it occurs to me that evil must constantly respawn,
while good, while virtue, is immortal.
vice has always a new fresh young face,
while virtue is venerable
as nothing else
in the world is
one day, I’m going to letter a massive mural of this quote.
