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.

Feltron Annual Reports

Feltron Annual Report 2009, Cover

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 […]

Visualizing a Life

Work Life Chart from Whatever You Think Think the Opposite by Paul Arden

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 […]

Wolves Disguised as Sheep

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, […]

Rain or Shine or Tropical Storm

Apple Watch, 4-mile run, Coral Gables, Miami

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 […]

Having Standards

When you have standards, you produce work at a higher level and quality that most others in your field. The downside is you also make your life more difficult because you won’t tolerate shitty work. Some people will complain that you can be difficult to work with. Ignore the whiners. Let them tap themselves out […]

From Newark, Back to Miami

Landing at MIA

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.

The Verge Redesign: A Lesson In Usability & Testing

The Verve redesign 2022

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 […]
