Work. Play. Work

The first year in my life where I'm busy to the brim, but have also literally "scheduled-in" fun time. I guess I never realized you could do that before. Life is too short to not do what you love. Life is also too short to work all the time, even if you love it. Another random collection of photos from the past little bit. Work, play, lifestream.

I'm pretty in love with riding culture so far. It's amazing that you can get out of the city so easily, and cover so much more distance than I ever could just on my own 2 feet. It's been incredible getting up early on the weekends and basically feeling like you've had an entire day before most people have gotten out of bed.

The SixCycle boys destroyed the field at Orchard Beach. Really fun race to watch as you can see the entire loop of the crit. Rog took 2nd place.

I'm terrible at being girlie. I wear shitty jean, T-shirts and 10 year old boots 99% of the time, but every once and a while you gotta bust those leggies out. Occasion for documentation.

Drawing process of something special I'm making for friends at OFFF Barcelona where I'll be speaking in June.

Invited to Monotype's Pencil to Pixel exhibition with the wonderfully talented Ryan Essmaker and Mark Weaver.  I'm not overly knowledgable about the nuances of typography. All I know is I like it, and I know when it looks good and when it doesn't. This exhibition had a treasure trove of original drawings used to mint the letterpress characters. I loved seeing all the process drawings, erased corners, whited-out serif revisions, etc. I love all the smudges behing the perfection. I also particularly loved how they adorned the entire space with type—on the glass of the window and over the walls and entries. I liked this simple self-describing statement in the window: "Set in DIdot LT Roman"

I think this 1776 1976 piece was a crowd favorite. Or at least me and Ryan's. Holy fuck, gorgeous.

The mister somehow finds time to run a business, race bikes, keep me happy, and get tattooed. Took a little inking upstate adventure to kick off the weekend.
