Huzzah, we are gonna be looking at three or four places in Freret and Midtown tomorrow. Wish me luck! We might end up just going back to Seattle, packing up all our shit, and being gone by the end of next month.

Brush pencil on paper, Illustrator colors. The transparency on the windscreen had to be simulated manually because Illustrator didn't get transparency until 9 and this was done in 8.
Sometimes I look up from my own screen and look around the coffee shop and see what feels like a good quarter of the laptop screens with the default OSX backdrop. Usually Sierra.
I don’t know what it says about them. Or what it says about me that I can recognize that. It probably says that I spend a lot of my time thinking about computers, at least.
