lettercult- "L"


Lettercult has the "L" letters posted...again, i submitted 2 and let him choose which one to post.

what a mess!

uh-oh. the projects have moved into other spaces...as in the kitchen counter. (that's a big bag of intelligentsia coffee-espresso-thanks to alex!). it's getting out-of-control...just wait til one or all five of the cats lands on this mess, they'll be walking around with PMS chips hanging from their tail...

WOW!!!

"HOW" magazine just named "theydrawandcook" as one of their top 10 sites for designers! woo-hoo! check it out here (oh. and 9 other great sites were also named!)

the number 4 book





I'm making another book...the tiny size book that you make on your mac and send off for printing. I am kind of addicted to making these small books. this one is for my brother-in-law (big birthday coming up)...he loves the number four. um. I hope he doesn't follow my blog or the surprise won't be a surprise.
