Daily—New York City Day 4

Sorry ladies and gents, can't write much today; got to spend the rest of night making up some work. Picture is worth a thousand words and I got about 102 photographs for this post. It's ok, take your time. [su_heading]8:00AM[/su_heading] Nope, me neither. [su_heading]1:02PM[/su_heading] [su_heading]2:52PM[/su_heading] [su_heading]3:27PM[/su_heading] Antique Flea Markets on the weekends....

Daily—New York City Day 3

Dammit, woke up late again. I've tried waking up early, but my right hand was terrific at snoozing the alarm. If I get a dime for every alarm snoozed, I'd be popping champaign and blogging all day. [su_heading]1:45PM[/su_heading] Skipped breakfast and went straight to lunch. Today's restaurant—Katsu-Hama.  They're on E 47th...

Daily—New York City Day 2

Day 2's itinerary—Wall st, Luke's Lobster, SoHo, & Museum of Arts and Design. Instead of the planned 9AM, we woke up at 12 PM. A clear sign that we're still struggling with the East Coast time zone. There's a long day ahead of us, so we left...

Daily—New York City Day 1

Here goes day 1: X'mas gift, Prosperity Dumplings, Empty SoHo, and Time Square. Before New York, let's rewind a bit and start at SFO, where my last post ended. [su_heading]9:52PM[/su_heading] All set and ready, we took off around 10PM. Spending Christmas eve 10,000 ft above ground was like...

Daily—Off to New York City

Quick post; I'm just 15 minutes away from boarding the plane. I'll be in New York for the next couple of days, can't wait to document every fkin' thing I see there. Peace out, Cali. Why, hey there, Big Apple. [su_divider top="no"] [su_heading]7:18PM[/su_heading] Thanks, Phil, for taking care of the...

Daily—Christmas Party

I did some slight rearrangement of my living room. Like the new chair setup? [su_divider top="no"] Celebrating Christmas early, since Michelle and I will be on our way to New York over the next couple of weeks. Perhaps it's not the brightest idea to spend the winter...

Derek Hui—Design Process

Brand development and stationary design for Canada based photographer, Derek Hui. He wanted a logo that can reflect the film like aesthetic and artistic engagements he exerts with each project. The customized hand written script embraces the natural/retro/organic essence that he wishes to convey and providing a...

Daily—Home

2 more days before I leave for New York. Still in the process of finishing up some work before I can enjoy a carefree vaca. (I'm in denial; it's never carefree as long as there's 3G or wifi). [su_heading]10:25AM[/su_heading] Michelle left this on my desk before she left...

Daily—Bone Room, Christmas Tree

Today's been fairly productive. However, I can't disclose most of my work until it is made public by the clients. Fortunately, the highlight of my day isn't the work at all. Instead, it's the final touch up of our x'mas tree and an interesting shop Michelle and...

Daily—Caffe Mediterraneum, Work in Process

[su_heading]9:52AM[/su_heading] All 49ers inspired items are sold out. They're all packed and shipped. [su_heading]11:12AM-8:42PM[/su_heading] Texts, phone calls, sudden errands, and chores. [su_heading]8:43PM[/su_heading] Finally found a place of peace in Berkeley while Michelle attended a graduation gathering with her cohort. ...
