Typically, it is my custom to mark the beginning of each new year with some sort of retrospective on the closing year. Last year’s write up on Anno Domini Two Thousand and Nine (or, as I like to call it, Em’n’Em Eye Ex) was, frankly, a little depressing. 2010, as it turns out, was not equally depressing. 2010 was actually pretty interesting and, dare I say, exciting. But — there is always a “but,” isn’t there? — its largest and most conspicuous features were, dammit-all, kind of depressing. Its epitaph would read similarly to that of 2009.
So screw it. That’s what I say.
And screw it I shall. Instead, my first post of MMXI (which, yeah, sorry for dropping the ball the last few months. I’d tell you about it, but like I said… depressing) will serve only to alert y’all to the fact that the exceptionally swell guys over at 604 Republic commissioned me to do a couple designs for them and that one of those designs is now for sale (in 2 different colors) at their site.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope that wasn’t too depressing for you. I’m not trying to complain. Surely, my list of complaints is a mercifully short one, and I’m grateful. None-the-less, I’m not really up for writing a 2010 run-down that literally nobody is begging for or would likely find interesting. I’m going to stop talking about this now, because it’s starting to sound like someone ASKED me to write something and I’m letting them down, which, of course, could not be a greater departure from reality. 🙂
More regular updates to return soon.
