I’m so sorry for not adding anything new recently, I was experiencing a creative crunch. I haven’t even tweeted at all for several days, I started posting there less frequently on twitter after the road trip and started adding random quotes and pictures instead. It’s like an idea board now, I just write all the deeply personal info in my Facebook instead.
I’m beginning to have a hard time now coming up with more ideas for the zine, I thought of the layout design but I need to really dig in to more research and look up different kinds of actual zines before I really delve into it. I haven’t even done html for my site yet. I’ve realized now that this is going to be a huge job and I would love it if at least two people would volunteer with me on this project. That would mean a lot to me.
Aside from the zine my mother kept suggesting to me to sign up for a website called LogoTournament. It’s basically a crowdsourcing website in which a business can hold a contest and designers can submit their logos towards that particular contest, and the winner receives $275 to $575. Initially I was reluctant to join, because I might not even win in any of these contests. I would have to submit ten different logos to to each contest in order to have a greater chance at winning. Right now I’m on the waiting list, so I signed on to DesignContest and had already submitted five logos to each contest on that site. Click over here to see some of the work I’ve done so far. Doing this helped me feel more motivated to work more in my opinion, and will help add more work to my oeuvre.
Other then that, my birthday is going to come up tomorrow, I will officially be twenty-three years old. I feel I’ve grown up so fast in these past five years since my mother and I moved back to the states from Israel for college, I’ve also had the chance to learn more about myself and my surroundings as well. That everything in life isn’t exactly how you would like it to be and that you have to work painfully hard in order to get what you want. That you shouldn’t trust people in high positions of power so much (like doctors and politicians) and to always be more open and true to yourself. I’m glad I was able to realize that because one day we might not have that kind of chance anymore.
So thats it, I hope you all had a great summer so far and I will be sure to add some new stuff here as soon as possible. It may take some time, like anything else… but it will be really exciting and awesome in the end.
