okay here we go

I wrote this little thing to myself while I was trying to sketch. I kept thinking “Man I want to sketch something really cool!!!” but the thought of sketching something cool intimidated me. And I realized I’ve just graduated from design school. There is a huge part of me that wants to impress everyone (for employment purposes) but part of me wants to take a break from that, and I think I will try and do that here. I am not going to judge myself before the final result. I’m just going to do what I want to do and be done with it. I will make lots of mistakes and that will be OKAY here.

I am not a photographer. It is something that has held me back from blogging, being too lazy to edit pictures… but whatever, I would like to document some of this.


As I struggled to find the perfect elipse and pretended I could sketch something great a la spencer nugent, I decided that I need to do something for MYSELF and not worry about what others think of it.

Theres a strange high I get from making things, instant gratification. So i blatantly took this design¬†and made it with scraps I had lying around, specifically some industrial felt scrap that I swiped off of my friend (Thanks Tommy) + elastic…

Simple as hell, and it beats that $50 price tag.

Since the elastic broke off the last felt wallet I made.. I made up for it in stitches.

Ah, it feels good to know I can beat the system and make something out of nothing. Instantly gratified. I totally copied it, but at the same time… its a piece of fabric that wraps around your cards, can you really patent that?
