one of our big williamsburg goofs is that every time you sit next to someone in a bar or meet them at a party and ask them what they do, they say they're a graphic designer. hubby always says, you are what you are paid to do. you're not an graphics designer who has never had a job, you're a barista and you're not an actor that's never been on stage, you're a waiter - get used to it.
i was starting to feel like a goof myself this year. since 2008 commenced, i haven't been paid to do anything but pour cocktails. you're a bar owner, andebobandy, get used to it. but now it's official. i've been paid for work in 2008, and i'm officially a professional once more. i wouldn't want to survive on my take, but i was able to buy a beautiful new laptop bag to carry my beautiful new (well, not so new now) laptop.
it's from a cute company called timbuk2. they do custom bags. i like it, because i'm frighteningly paranoid that my laptop is not protected enough from bumps and bruises, but this bag has a super padded corduroy lined pouch inside for my baby.
so this is the spot that dana (of blush and flax) and i worked on for the above the influence ad campaign.
we aren't responsible for the idea of it, only the t-shirt designs.
and just a little side bit for my mom: hi, mom. i swear that we're coming to visit. you'll know when, just as soon as i do. xxoo.
