The Rise of Endymion quote

from The Rise of Endymion, by Dan Simmons

This quote has stuck with me for over 8 years since I first read the gorgeous Hyperion cantos (probably my favourite series of novels). I don’t know if I truly knew what it meant at the time, but it struck a chord; it resonates deeper than ever now.

Secret project

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Sean and I finally decided on a name and a domain for the secret project! Exciting times…
We just need to uh, get started on the idea/product now. This is the most excited I’ve been about a design project in a long time (branding, website, packaging, p.o.p, ads, general amazingness).

It’s been a long time…

…since I started sketching regularly. Part of me thinks it might be because I am scared that one day I will run out of my cache of Pentel Superb BK77 fine ballpoint pens (I can’t find them in stationery stores in Toronto anymore, but a quick search makes me feel a bit better about their availability on a global scale.)

So anyway, you were bound to figure out that I’m a lecherous perv soon anyway, so here are a couple of pages from my latest sketchbook.

Holy shit, blast from the past!

I recently stumbled upon my old Flash portfolio website circa 2002… I wish I still had the vector files! I remember labouring over those pill vectors into the dead of night.

my old fully functional website from 2002

Vivian is treated more like an experiment, than a human being.

Aside from being a tranny term (a hilarious fact I just recently found out), my website name “fully functional” was originally meant to be an ironic statement about myself. Back in 2002, there were many, many things medically and emotionally wrong with me. The name isn’t relevant in the same way anymore; now, it applies in a more sincere way, with the ultimate goal to being a fully functional ui/ux/interaction designer and developer.

Clearly the design of this Flash site overwhelms the dinky work… it’s kind of awesome to see where this all started.
