Not exactly a model for output, am I? After making a point to try and get my Spare Change project up and running at full steam, I have so far failed quite miserably; after the busy days I had last week my mind was simply exhausted.
The pub gig I mentioned recently went without a hitch, as anticipated. I made a few very minor mistakes but I doubt, unless you knew what I intended to do, you would notice. The after party went into the wee hours of the morning — I believe I was back home at 4:30 or 5 am, but can’t quite recall to be honest. With the exception of a few parties, no more serious gigs are booked, but Gio usually waits until a week or so before to mention it.
Since then the company myself and another friend are starting is getting rolling: Business cards have been ordered from Studio On Fire, one of the finest letterpress and design studios I’m aware of; our website is being coded as we speak; and we’re set for a meeting with a friend’s acquaintance whom is apparently quite market savvy. (I’m really stoked to see these business cards. They printed my personal ones, which unfortunately I don’t have a good photo of, but they’re real sexy. 220lb cotton stock, Pantone Cyan on both sides and the edges of the card. Mmm.) In other work news I’ve always wanted to design a magazine, which has finally come to fruition with a client’s new publication aimed at independent travel. It’s going to be fairly locally-based, but I’m excited for the opportunity.
Well that sums up this update. I’m on the fence as to whether or not I’m going to try and continue the Spare Change project — I’m considering other ideas, perhaps a weekly installation, that would be a little more realistic for my schedule as of late. I’ve got a post that’s been in the works for a while regarding our written language (heady sounding, huh?) that should see the light of day this week.
Stay tuned. Or don’t. But I’d like it if you did.
