There are very few people in any field that we can truly consider a “master”. Kim Jung Gi was a master. He died on Monday at the age of 47. Here’s a video of him drawing straight from his pen to paper, no sketching. Below is some of his work.
I started buying Nicholas Felton’s annual reports in 2009. These aren’t annual reports he’s done for companies, but annual reports documenting his own life. I would order 2 copies each year I bought one. He limited each year to 2,000 copies. They’re in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. This weekend I […]
An idea popped in my head when I was running the other day. This happens a lot when I run. When I run my mind gets to wander. I agree with David Goggins that listening to music when running is cheating. It’s important to be inside my own head, alone. The physical benefits of running […]
I generated these images with Midjourney, using the text query: a wolf disguised as a sheep. What I like the best about Midjourney is the unexpected results.
Yesterday one of my designers quit. Let’s call him Tater. Tater said yesterday would be his last day. Normally you give 2 weeks notice when you announce your resignation from a job so that projects and documents can be properly offloaded. Tater didn’t do this. My boss was really pissed Tater quit with no notice, […]
When I woke up this morning and looked out the window it was still raining (thanks to Hurricane Ian). What I saw beyond the weather was a brief reprieve from the usually laborious runs I do down here in 85-degree weather with 60% humidity. Running in a downpour? Sign me up. Some people will say […]

Some people will complain that you can be difficult to work with. Ignore the whiners. Let them tap themselves out […]
I wanted to make sure I got back to my house in Miami in time for Tropical Storm Ian. I always wonder if snapping shots out the plane window will ever get it old. They never seem to.
Adobe is buying Figma because they were not vigilant about the evolution of collaborative design software.
The big news that dropped last Thursday was Adobe buying Figma for 20 billion dollars. As Winston Zeddemore would say, that’s a big Twinkie. Adobe is paying such a large amount because they missed the collaborative cloud software boat. Adobe XD sucks. You know it and I know it. For the first 16 years of […]
The Gist: Stay vigilant with your website. Always be thinking about how you can make it better. Don’t let it go stale, but also don’t relaunch it without first conducting proper reviews, critiques, and testing. Yesterday tech news website (blog?) The Verge debuted a new design. It’s not good, but I don’t think it’s for […]
