04-belong blk
When I belong,
I’ll be gone
Will I still stand tall?
Make it work
Keep going
Do you sow your seeds?
Or just make ends meet?
Its never as easy
sometimes just sleazy
Belonging freely
leaving never easy.
Who I am now
can’t go back somehow.
It goes nowhere.
Just a place where your soul empties
your mind… numb.
Feelings, none.
Can’t be undone.
Awake!
Before its too late.

My ball and chain

Itec C454e-20150806152623
My ball and chain

it gives me comfort;

makes me feel safe.

At times its heavy;

weighs me down.

But I drag it along

because I need it.

My ball and chain

brings false sense of happiness; false security.

This we do not see,

until we’ve created our own happiness.

Our own security.

That DAMN ball and chain…

I still need it.

I don’t want to need it.

How can I do without it? …Oh how.

Typography I’ve been experimenting with…

Book cover design has somewhat… evolved. Or at least it should. So in my spare time I’ve been experimenting with various media still within typography but somehow feel we can/should add more authenticity to the design of our books, posters… actually just about anything really… 🙂

These are some personal projects I’ve taken upon myself to explore… I hope you enjoy. And I hope to continue with this soon.

The work below is far from perfect, but I think it was meant to be that way.

A blog post about the book covers I designed

GA_medium header4

 

I’d like to share with you a blog post written by a client and friend of mine about the self-published book covers I designed for their company, Growing Agile.

I hope it doesn’t look too much like bragging, but I’m really proud of this, and I think I should be too!

Here’s a link to the blog post as well as my description about the cover process, how I approached them, my rough thumbnail sketches, and thoughts behind the design I done. They also give their thoughts on the whole process as well.

LOVE my job! 🙂
