Recap of some changes.

Hey blog, long time no see! Things have been unusual lately, so I haven't had much worthwhile to post. But there's been a lot of stuff going on.

Probably the most significant, and recent, change is that I decided it was finally time to part ways from my full-time position as an in-house product designer. Technically I've always been freelance, but now I'm 100% off-site and solo.

Well, not exactly solo. I'm officially part of Paper Bicycle now. So I spend my days with Lindsay and Francesca rockin' packaging, product and design for a bunch of different clients. We just moved into a new studio on the corner of Lake and Lyndale in Uptown Minneapolis.

I've spent about 2 1/2 weeks in the office and everything is already almost busier than I can handle. Things are pretty great.

The other gargantuan undertaking we wrapped up as remodeling our kitchen for a reality TV show, which threw our lives for a month-and-a-half long loop. It was a DIY show, and while we didn't do everything, we certainly ended up doing our fair share.

I'll spare the whole story, but to give you an idea, we went from this:

To this:

Maybe it's not really art, but I feel like it's Lindsay and I both had a hand in making it real. Plus, we painted a mural. So that's art, right?

New job, new studio, new home. Things have been changing fast and furious. But things are starting to normalize a bit, so hopefully there will be more activity on this blog, starting immediately.
