We Are All Soft

Kelly, an art director at Hallmark just passed away. I didn't know her very well, but i didn't need to, to know how good of a person she was. I had been following some of her recent hospital visits, but i had no idea it would have come to this... no one did. My thoughts and prayers are with her friends, family, and team here at Hallmark.

Life is a constant trial. I have been thinking about that a lot lately, but not too much, so not to make my head hurt. I guess it's true of me, when my mind isn't busy with work, i starts to wonder... but i am in a much better place now.

It seems Autumn has come early this year. I like it.

Sincerely,
Josh

PS. I got the pictures from the Seattle Trip. I will let you know where they end up.

Still So Infantile


I can't thank everyone enough for being so awesome on my birthday. i wish i had more to say, but i am extremely tired and i will post more "tomorrow".

Oh, officially the word is out now, i am moving to a new team at Hallmark. The hip/cool/trendy design team.

Lost Without Limitations

Stefan Stagmeister was at Hallmark today. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out either (well maybe a little, but i won't go into it because it's not really relevant). SO, he came and won me over immediately with this Austrian accent. Just as Chip Kidd, Stephan grounded me on the design world outside of Hallmark and gave me perspective. Stephan's latest project was involving a diary that he kept. In the diary were statements like, "Keeping a diary supports personal developement." He used these to create his book Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far. The book is filled with innovative and often traditional typographic solutions for his "things he learned". So many of the things he mentions i struggle with myself... it was pretty much the perfect time for him to come. The "book" is actually a collection of books each with interchangeable covers for the die-cut in the sleeve. It's pretty super... i must say. Ok, enough of that. I just think Mr Stagmeister is pretty swell if you couldn't tell. ..

I was pretty homesick at the end of this weekend. It's slightly better now, but there was so many things about being home that i miss. I miss my friends back home a lot... i have to say though, if it wasn't for the awesome new friends i have met out here in Kansas City, i would probably be insane...

Clovers Pressed in Book Pages

All this week i have been bombarded by speakers in hopes to awe and inspire us. I think they have done a rather good job at it judging by the reaction of myself and others here. Our very own Marita started out the week with her own trend predictions for the year. Tuesday brought Denyse Schmidt, fabric designer and quilt maker (currently). Jane Fulton Suri, the creator of such things as Banks of America's "Keep the Change" Program, and the resurgence of "casual biking (coasting)", among many others. She was my favorite. It felt as if my mind was set free... i haven't really done much of anything with it though. Soon, i'm sure. Issa, I didn't get to see, i heard she was great too... she just seemed like a hippy to me... Today, Chad Pregracke came to our eco-rescue with his stories of cleaning up the Mississippi River. Each presenter has some sort of book based on their works. And each day, we put in our segment of paper with our name on it, hoping to win one of maybe 5 books each day. So, on the last name, of the last day, of trends week, my name was called. Anyone who knows me, knows that i am not a very lucky guy, or at least thats what i believe. I have had to make my own luck all my life. I don't win anything. So you can imagine to what surprise this was. Partial thanks to my friend Tobe for her help. Blah blah blah, i'm rambling... Here's to hope for a good weekend.

"This winter is lasting forever, at least for tonight."

Oh MO! Oh YES!


Frank Chimero; The States. The childish and brilliant idea of putting items in the shape of the 50 states... he is a little short right now though. Check out his other work too if you get a chance. He's from Missouri. ooo...

Polaroid's Last Shot
Articles like this one i am linking you to worry me. As a basic summery, Polaroid feels like they are becoming outdated in the "instant camera" market, so they stopped making them. The company that made instant film a "polaroid", is now moving into the digital age. My how times have changed.

The forcast includes a small chance of more snow and ice today. Yey... but i think we are in the clear now.

Living in constant mess,
Josh

Hard to Swallow.

[image removed]

Last night i took my work home with me. unfortunately, my art director didn't appreciate the result. So, now the internet gets a taste because *EDIT* doesn't own it, i do. If i'm lucky, i will still use it later on something else.

Today after my 9 hours of work, i took a break to go see Sweeney Todd, and then back to work for another 2 hours after that. SO, more tomorrow... because right now, i am still at work and i want to leave.

*EDIT*
Based upon what my anonymous tipsters mysteriously threatening comments, i decided to take down image just in case. I'm upset that something that i do on my own time at home, as soon as it touches *EDIT* ground it's theirs. sigh.

Abortion

Update on Richard Quest:

Finnish Newspapers Reported.
The gay Jewish guy is Richard, the Jolly bearded guy is Santa, the card in their hands is the one we designed for them (notice the huge-ass Hallmark logo we slapped on the back so people know).

Whispy Winter Weather

Gemini Card Company

This weather reminds me of back home. It makes me miss it. There's about an inch of snow that covers the ground and it's cool. Something about this weather doesn't make me cold right away, but it has a very specific feel to it.

Big weekend planned.

Shades of Grey

My motivation has been lacking lately (I wonder how often i have started posts out with lines similar to that). Work has been a constant struggle, I think it's probably because i haven't been off work in so long, and i haven't had a whole lot of tickets to work on. Now, i finally have work on my plate, and i can't seem to inspire myself. But it's not only work, when i'm home i don't even feel like working on my sisters website, or even blogging.

Have i lost my muse?

Lately, i have found myself much happier than usual (except when i am staring blankly at my computer monitor of course). My social life is getting much better... it's a shame that my work life is probably suffering for that exact reason.

Questionable Content. This web comic kept me from doing work all day Friday and already a lot of this week. It's probably the most relatable comic on the internet for me.

Last night, i watched:
Next - It was an original take on an age old story. A man, who can see 2 minutes into the future (that's the original part) is called upon to save the world, but he is reluctant (that's the boring story i have heard over and over again). The acting was drab and lifeless, especially Jessica Biel. If only you were as good an actress as you are hot in this movie. Parts were corny and uncalled for, such as the stupid love story element, and the "evil" FBI vs crazed Russians. However, the great action scenes and special effects made up for SOME of this. Sadly, not enough to make a full recovery. If only the rest of the movie was as good as the last 20 minutes. In the very end, they almost left it open for a sequel, but like Nicholas Cage, i was able to see into the future, and i saw a box office bust. ZING! Seriously, Epert, give me a call when you are ready to retire...


I think i should probably get to early, maybe get a fresh start on tomorrow. I promise i will post something a little more interesting later.

Living The Lie



I picked this up on friday during our research trip. It's a beautiful children's story, about a boy who eats books. Marita, our famous trends lady, is pretty awesome. She was able to point out a handful of good places to research and some good ideas on what to look for. I hope i get to spend some time with her later.
After researching, Aaron, Heather, John, Ashley, and I ventured out to "Worlds of Fun" for their "Fright Night." It was really amusing. Yesterday, Halo and then Vacancy. Today, church and then Halo. It was an interesting weekend, good overall though.

out.

Among the Leaves and Vines

Today, at work, we painted pumpkins. There aren't a whole lot of places you can work that allows you to come in late, play around all day, then leave early, and have it be part of your salary. Good times. They will be donated to the Sun Flower House, and auctioned off. Mine's the one with face in the hoodie (if you can tell which that is).

GAH! Ok. My boring life doesn't need to be displayed on the internet. So i deleted the last post. I know i have said this before but i am going to try and stop posting personal things on this blog. Or rather thing that should be left for real life. I feel like i turned the corner here, so this time it might be for real. It's just sometimes it's my only way of getting through ya know? maybe i'm just a screwed up wuss.

With Talons.


Tonight; the season home opener for the Philadelphia Eagles. Most people who know me well enough, know i don't really like sports all that much. I pretty much only follow my home teams when i can, and pick up on the rest while watching PTI and SportsCenter at the gym.
Taking sports into a realm i relate too; the NFL thinks they have a genius marketing scheme on their hands by selling fashion friendly woman's clothing. Such as this.This idea took off about 2 years ago and seems to be doing well. Personally, i think it would be best if the clothing Eagles fans wore to parties looked like the picture to the left.
Of course, the Birds lost in the long run. 20-12. Bitches.




Today at work, they warned us, a second time, about posting "Hallmark proprietary material" on blogs and on the internet. Of course, being the young, technologically savvy Hallmark "kid", I must be the culprit. Or at least thats who i feel. My manager singled me out already, what's stopping the rest of the crew now. Is that going to stop me from blogging? Or blogging about work? Fuck no. As far as we were informed, i am still well within legal guidelines on what i am posting online.
I got a call today to do some freelance work, I am going to call back at lunch tomorrow and see what it's all about.
I think I'll go to bed early tonight.

Big Hollywood Murder

In the Headlines:
• Nice! Paris Hilton is suing Hallmark for $500,000 to a card the costs $2.94 and i personally don't even think is that good. Probably because she thinks she can copywrite "thats hot". Daddy makes all of his money from owning beautiful hotels, and Paris makes her money from from law suits. Classy.

• Someone was murdered in my alma mater Thursday. Reaffirming the fact that the Mennonites have an evil streak in them. Actually, this is really no laughing matter, it's very heartbreaking. It was 3 dick heads who beat up a 19 year old downtown. Story here.

• I have decided to myself that i just need to talk less, that everything i say can be used against me, and that I need to start doing things for myself, because i'm getting no where like this.
• Carrying on the tradition of Japanese cut paper art, Patrick Gannon now lives in Tokyo, Japan, and put is constantly updating is blog with new work. Why can't this guy be me? If i had any talent at all, i would do this.

• Brittany Spears is going to publicly humiliate herself by opening up the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, with her latest hook up Criss Angel. Criss Angel will be performing a trick where he makes Brittany's career completely disappear. ZING! Call me Conan if you need a writer.

Unfit

This shits tight. From Buddha Apparel; Soundwave, Optius Prime and Megaton T-shirts. They actually have a decent amount of nice shirts, and a stylish looking catalog to view them in. You can also view Optius and Megatron searching through. Because the resolution sucks on that website. I included the images of them too.

I'm off to learn CS3. EEEEeeeee....! Thats me squealing in a fit of joy. I'm excited. It's about time we got that here.

Cut

More of Hallmark's wasted talent, Matt "Mad" Hawkins, is leaving. Basically he is a paper engineering genius. You can find all of this paper toys here. He will be featured in HOW magazine in 2009 I believe, which will include a print of an exclusive toy. He is also part of a site called Paper Forest Basically, he is obsessed with paper mechanics, and for good reason; he is awesome at it. Matt was actually a Technical Designer on our Humor team. It's a real shame.

I think this is a venue of art that I could really get into. I took engineering in high-school and aced it easy. My teacher said i was too good at the paper model project. If Poppin' Fresh is any indication, I was the only person that made a 3D toy with moving parts (and with only one piece of paper). Also, with my Pop-Up cards I did in college. I feel i'm ready.

I will come back and edit this post and ad some pictures of matts work.

Longing For the Coast Line

Lately, myself and others have been noticing i have been running myself ragged. I have a lot on my mind, but what else is new right? Other than the constant troubles of being single and alike, I have made my life even more difficult by looking for a new place to live.

I just recently renewed my rent on my current apartment for a 6 month term. Now, i am in contact with rental agencies, realtors, credit unions, friends, family... everyone, so that in six months i don't have to be in this apartment. I even updated my resume on Monster.com just in case. ;)

Other than "moving", some things in my life are getting me a little livid. Things that really shouldn't. I am just as guilty of letting online communities control my life as anyone else, but I hate when people act like doesn't mean a big deal but it does. Besides all this, i feel like I have finally found some things to take my mind off my heartbreak. I feel like i just can't be "stress free", so something new to be stressed about helps. It's nice. I am going to censer myself from further information, but i think i am feeling better?

My friend Julie contacted me tonight to do a little bragging. Haha. Today she started her job at Marvel in New York. Yeah, the comic book (movie, multimedia, etc.) company. She knew that if anyone appreciate it I would. I feel as if she had every right to brag. The job sounds stupendous and she has the resume/portfolio to land it now. Lots of congratulations go to her. Even though i am extremely jealous.

I sorta wish i was home right now... i feel like i wouldn't have to worry about any of this. I know i shouldn't live in the past, but i can't help but wonder how different my life would be if Hallmark and I would have never worked out. So much would be different, but would it be better? I like to hope not.

Speaking of home, I am picking up Heather from the airport tomorrow. I look forward to her stories.

Tonight, i took a break from all this and played some Tiger Woods Golf and Zelda. It has actually been quiet a while since i have just sat down and played the Wii. Zelda is a long, in-depth game, that keeps my mind focused on puzzles and mind games. On the other hand Tiger Woods was getting me a little frustrated. EIther way, both of them gave me a good break tonight.

It was definately a good thing that i hadn't bought my iMac yet, for a bunch of reasons. One, is the new iMac. Man, it is sexy as hell. Unfortunately, it still hasn't done anything with the premiere of the new OSX. It's still coming out on an unmarked date in October. iLife '08 on the other hand comes with the the new computers. One thing i think is neat about Apple is all of their "copy" on their website, etc. is very personable and conversational when they are explaining their computers.

I thought this was funny. As you may well know, i am a big fan of anime. But i don't think i could ever be this big a fan.... or could i?

There Are No Bad Friends (They Aren't Friends at All)


I can't express how i feel about all of the concern i got from all of my friends today. I don't want to go into listing names of all the people that were so nice, but i seriously needed to know your support was there. Some people I felt had more compassion than others, but either way, thanks. Even though I still feel like shit, the fact that you came to me to see if i was alright (maybe just not dead), made me feel the exact opposite emotions i felt last night.
This also helped:

This is Pam's baby. Pam was my lead at Crayola. I had no idea she had this adorable little girl. I talked to her and my other lead today through e-mails. I figured maybe i would keep my name fresh in their minds if you know what i mean.

no happy hour today? thats actually probably for the best i guess. i couldn't concentrate at work today... i hope this passes.

A Page From Your Book


*DISCLAIMER* This image is several weeks old, but i wanted to post some pen sketches of mine. Due to my problems with my laptop, i haven't been able to scan them. I did these about a week after Heather and i broke up. In no way does this reflect my feelings at this moment. I am actually in a pretty content place in my life.

I now have 3 printed cards as far as i know. I got samples in the mail today. I will try and post them up later... They are actually a little embarassing.

Today Cecilia and i officially registered our cards to Mo. Cripes. Scary. It was a long, painstaking process that i am not looking forward to doing again anytime soon.

And then, Heather sent me this. Apperently, there is a fine line between being a geek and being mentially challenged.

"...just include my address next time."

It's apparently part of our job at Hallmark (or at least in Humor), to put in an additional 5 hours of work a week to our 40. I suppose most of that is research. So, in the spirit of that, I have decided to do my blog posts outside of work. At least for this week anyway. I might actually be pretty busy. I have a good amount to do in about 3 weeks.

This laptop is a mess. I really need to get an iMac. Come on Leopard... hurry up and come out!


Get your attention? Look at her. She is so hot, she isn't even playing it right. Moving on, if you have a Wii, you should add me to you're address book. If you don't know how, just ask me. Here's my addy: 8075-4846-3079-3763.

Onto the cool stuff.
Lil' John, you have truly influenced a generation. Crunk was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary among about 100 other words. Ironically, the word can't be defined. This isn't the first, and sure won't be the last. Last year, "bling bling" was added. It's a sign of the times. Sorry Webster, no matter what you add to your "books," most people will still use the internet for FREE instead. The full article here on MTV.com.

Skull-A-Day.
A good blog always deserves some recognition. This is another blog where there is a photo for every day of the year. Unlike 356 Portraits, this has only started 44 days ago. Some of them are pretty creative, others are boring. I am curious to see how they turn this 44 into 365.

your shaky voice says it all.

When Old is New Again

It's Friday and i'm just about to leave. I feel like i didn't do much today, but both of my cards are almost finished. Of course the art director could have something to say about that.

Nothing interesting to post today. Dinner went well last night. The chili was just ok though. =) Next time it will be better though. I learn from my mistakes. Last night Heather and I watched a movie called Born Rich, about heirs and heiresses (correct thanks to kristen, spell-master) of fortunes — The Trump girl, the Johnson & Johnson kid. It was interesting, but not thrilling.

The only thing i will post is this. Because i have friend at Nike:
Nike Vintage.
These shoes rule.
I'm sure Nick and Lexi have themselves a couple of pairs already. The site's only OK, but they goodies section is a great idea to create buzz.

and... weekend. see ya Monday, unless i get bored or see something thrilling.

Good Luck, Friday.

Oh good morning indeed.
A few things to post: Because i work for a card company this is appropriate research:
Seriously Postcards.

Some e-cards.


Also, this guy, Josh Powers, just left Hallmark.
I would have left too if they weren't letting me illustrate. Good luck guy. I don't think it would be hard to make a name for yourself.

Come on Hallmark, get with the mother fuckin flippin times!

Trees Are So in Right Now

You thought i was giving up huh? Fat chance suckers.

Today was something else. I worked all morning on a card, only to have someone tell me all the things i should do to it. Sadly, I feel like i should take their advice because my cards don't look "classic humor" enough. Blah. Basically, it's everything i learned to hate in college. Drop shadows, gradients, mixing CAPS and lower case in ways you shouldn't. All well.

I left early from work to help Lindsey move. I am pretty beat, but I'm sure she appreciated it. Everyone is getting a house out here. Hers is a really nice place. A place i can see myself in as well. It would be nice to have a roommate though for something like that. It makes me kinda wonder if i want one too. Hm... This is me wondering.

I have every intention of going home now. I'll be back in PA over the 4th. I am psyched. I'm putting together a list of things to do a home. You'll see it... I mean i post pretty much everything happening in my life on this thing.

Any links Josh? I'm afraid not. Well not design links. Lets focus on music, because the interesting design stuff, i feel, is slim this week.
The Starting Line has an amazing cover here. At least i think so. Album out in July. Philly represent!

Manchester Orchestra. Do not be deceived this is not an actual orchestra. Indie-rock ala Brand New and Nada Surf.

Also check out Cartel. OK, so i am a big girl listening to pop-punk still. But it's just so damn catchy. Their new single Lose it... awesome. Thats all i feel like giving up.

Obviously, tree's are so in. and cool type.

Chances are, no updates for a little. I have a fun weekend ahead of me. But i will tell you about it after it's over.

Remember how the PS3 sucks? I do. Wii sold 338,000 consoles last month. ps3... 58,000. ouch.

love, Josh.

Anniversary of Nothing

Another rainy day in Missouri. I remain heart broken. Today will be especially hard. I had planned to take Heather out to dinner tonight and have a nice romantic evening. Obviously, that won't be the case.

Thats one of my illustrations. this particular character, of myself, i have been drawing the longest out of all of my others. i like how he has gotten progressingly uglier as time progressed. He is a much simpler design but i believe it was for the better. it's too bad i suck as an illustrator.

Mike Perry. Midwest is Best.
I loves me some typography. His illustrations are awesome too. I am getting the impression that most people have viewed this site well before i have... but i am going to post it anyhow, because i think his stuff is just neato. Besides, i haven't really come across anything else worth posting.

If you enjoy looking at what you can't afford to do to your place (i know i am!), then this is the site to visit. Modern interior design in wealthy homes.

At work, none of MY designs were picked in the line-up. "Too alternitive looking" they say. I'm just sick. Today sucks, as usual. Enjoy the sites, i am going to go sulk over what work i have.

Visitor

Kelly is my cubical neighbor. Kelly is like an older me. He enjoys anime, punk-rock music, lonely lunches, and hopeless romances. He recently found a girl that he really liked. He also recently lost that girl. I never really talk about the people at work, but this morning i felt compelled because he had mentioned how he had just broke up with his girlfriend... on his birthday. It struck a nerve in me, and i realized i was staring at myself. He is secretly all broken up about it, but he wasn't really letting the world know how much, especially his newly-made-ex-girlfriend. He went out of his way to make he happy and then one day he felt it was over even before it happened. Now we both sit here at work unhappy with our current persona.

Work is empty today. Everyone has something more interesting to do than sit in a sad little cubical and stare blankly at a computer screen. Research. Vacation. Whatever your poison. So, I believe, seperately, we are going to take off early today.

There is something about Postal Service that is very comforting and depressing at the same time. If you are thinking USPS... then you should possibly stop reading my blog.

Trivia night was a lot of fun. I felt good being able to at least assist with crap 90's music trivia. Who knew actually listening to Wheetus, Harvey Danger, and LEN would help. Napster and I were good friends back then. I learned that I didn't know my Care Bears as well as i thought. I also learned that i have other friends out in KC. I hope they feel the same.

Maybe I will post some Illustrations later.

My Muse

I need help finding my muse, my motivation. I am sitting here, at work, thinking I would rather be doing anything but designing right now, hence the blogging. It's just so discouraging to see something that love get to stagnant and boring. Being that it's Friday is also not helping. Hallmark clears out to a wasteland on a Friday. Normally the only people that try and come in friday are the people that really need to get something finished. I realize this is all just a mental block that I just have to push through. *sigh*

Confusing Fantasy For Reality

My body is tired but my mind won't let it rest.

Life is tough. Don't ever let anyone else tell you otherwise. Things like work, love, friendship, health... they are all plagues of the soul. Ok, I admit, I am being cynical, but thats how I feel all of the time. Lately, I have felt really beside myself. There are just so many things racing around inside my head, mostly one thing, but I know I shouldn't think about it as much as I do. I am the typed of person that likes to get stuff finished, and be the best, I don't like to leave an open end, or an incomplete task laying before me. Unfortunately, I am also the type of person that can never seem to do things right. I know, I know I am bitching. It sounds like a classic case of "sandy vagina" syndrome. But the problem is, it's all I can think about. How I can't be good enough at work, how I am a shitty boyfriend. And the worst part of it is, maybe by other standards I might be pretty good... Designing cards is tough. You really want to stand out. Be "that guy". But it doesn't just fall into your lap like that does it. I can't think of good ideas, but they will come I'm sure. As for love, or whatever it is I'm feeling. I feel the same way; that no matter what I do, I'm not going to be exactly what "they" are looking for. I want to say I have everything I have always wanted; a good job, a girlfriend, close friends, my own place and a loving family that I don't have to see everyday. The problem is, it's all in shambles, constant disarray. It's like having a puzzle, in a box, sitting right in front of you. All the pieces are the same color, shape and size. All you have to do is put it together. Now you're fucked.

SHIT! I mean I need an outlet, but I know I need to watch what I say here. It's so easy to get a jaded opinion or an eavesdropper. I just want to be happy.

So Lost... Someone once told me "it's like a swift kick to the face." Almost every episode I think I can agree with that. As for this one, I feel like they gave you a huge run around about Jacks tattoos, only to truly answer you in the last 15 minutes about what they mean. I hate filler. I haven't checked up on my "nerd site," but I'm sure the "Losties" all felt the same.

I believe I am rambling now. I am getting a little run down, so maybe I can finally sleep. I am sorry about the bitching... I am going to try and make this blog slightly more "professional" from here on out.
