I had a triple shot Flat White and it still wasn't enough. I have this incredible craving for the strongest most potent coffee I can get. Damn it! I want a short black! I want a nice HOT double shot short black!

"I will survive, I will survive"

I feel like Death warmed over--thankfully I am coherent after having a double shot Flat White. I will have another in an hour, which will perk me up for another nine hours of classes. I'm very tired because I worked all Labor weekend, which was not what I planned but blah! What doesn't kill know the expression ^_^.

The brief for this assignment was to create a restaurant identity. All the pieces had to be different but unified. This is my restaurant: POISON.

POISON sells poisonous delicacies to the more adventurous soul. The style is supposed to be Victorian / neo-gothic. I love it and it was so much fun to do.

I'm such a slack blogger, I mean I barely bother when I know I should. Blogging is quite therapeutic. At the moment I think I am going quite mad. I'm suffering Graphic-itis. What is this Graphic-itis? I'll demonstrate:

OCD tendencies + assignments + lack of funds + over ambitious plans = insanity by OD (over-designing).

My poor lower lip has become my stress ball -- ie. chew toy with an ugly blister that's big enough to warrant a birth certificate...think I'll call it "Bastard" cuz that's what I curse every time I chew it. I know that no one particularly wants to look at Bastard but tough! This is my blog so you'll be forced to see it. Also, notice the fingernails----they were delicious.

Other than that, most things are progressing nicely. I got Bondage Bear almost finito...I just have to finish the box. Also, everyone keeps reminding me to "add the whips and chains" gah! Nothing is innocent anymore! I mean, just cause BB is made out of vinyl doesn't mean he's a blow up toy. I'm very excited that he's so close to being done. Maybe he'll become a fashion trend.

How are my other assignments? Let's not talk about them...nuff said.


I seem to have run out of things to say so I'll post this so I can get back to chewing Bastard. Happy Labour Weekend everyone!!!

Reach for you Dreams

I found this on YouTube! I LOVED Gigi when I was a kid. I remember sitting for hours watching and imagining my own episodes. This has had a profound effect on my WHOLE life, I've never forgotten it. Probably it was the first thing that inspired me to go into fashion-y things.
