Things in New York are pretty slow. Michael Jackson had a postmortem birthday party on Saturday in Brooklyn, thrown by Spike Lee. I went to the Frank Lloyd Wright retrospective at the Guggenheim. I emailed probably close to sixty eight hundred craigslist posters and have gotten two responses so far but they have both been good. I completed my first freelance job yesterday and realized I have never designed anything for eight hours in a row.

Right now I have a bunch of different projects going including a little book of drawings i did on scraps of paper, an illustrate bizarre headlines from the ny times project, in addition to the projects I ve finished so far (designed and printed a skateboard deck, personal business cards, redesigned my physical portfolio, did an icon set for a film making website, ordered a batch of stickers, and put together two magazine articles to go to press.) The only thing thats rough about all of this is the state of my bank account. But I am doing my best to be frugal.

I move into my permanent apartment on Tuesday with Willy as my roommate. We have access to two roofs and conjoined rooms and we are located above a diner with cheap pancakes. Speaking of rooves, i have to go watch the sunset on the Manhattan skyline.

Click Here for a quick link to my aforementioned democracy piece. If you have the time and inclination you should sign up (takes one minute) and say that mine is the best. Well Dylan's and mine are anyways.

The New York sun is murderous. I think it was 95 yesterday. No more leaving the house.

My work is in another spot on the internet tube. My submission for the design competition run by was accepted! Now some dumb voting goes on and then the favorite pieces get shown at an exhibition in Newcastle and are published in a legit book. So fingers crossed.

Im in Brooklyn these days, trying to chase down leads on jobs. Slowly but surely.

New York on Saturday Night

I've been having bad dreams all summer but this morning I woke up exhausted. I move to Brooklyn on Saturday but I haven't been stressed about it really until today. And it isn't even me who is stressed, my subconscious is messing with me at night, making my stomach hurt during the day and it just is getting old. Hopefully after the move I will calm down.

I am still looking for a job but I think once I land in New York I'll be able to set things up more quickly and hopefully figure something out.
