Welcome to my design blog!

Hello! I have decided to create my first ever "design blog" - in which I will do one or more of the following:

- discuss existing designs (typography, packaging, identity)
- showcase original designs (works in progress, fun projects)
- blog about other blogs that inspire me creatively.

Because the third point is the reason I decided to create a blog, I feel it apt to plug their sites here, on my first-ever-design-blog-post!

Ironic Sans:
This blog is amazing - every post makes me say "I wish I had come up with that!" and that is a very good thing. I like the way his mind works, and on this blog you can definitely see it working.

This blog has great illustrator tutorials and cool reviews to boot! Awesome. Also - it made me want a Cintiq. *sigh*

This blog is what finally pushed me over the edge to start a blog of my own. On this blog there is great graphic design, tutorials, and yes, Patent Illustration. (My favorite kind of illustration... after reading Patently Ridiculous Check it out!

Well, I think we're off to a good start. My goal is to get inspired to the point where I can inspire others. I'm saying inspire a lot. Inspire.

This was fun, and until nextime,
