If I drew something to represent this time of year it would feature an octopus with tennis rackets on every tentacle.

So many balls in the air.

One ball required getting blank tees and sweatshirts from our distributor and running them back down to the studio to print and ship and ensure delivery by the holiday.

I hadn’t been to the new warehouse for the distributor before. The building was an enormous monolithic slab on the outer belt of the city. Driving up to it felt like approaching a cruise ship or star destroyer.

Anyway, yadda yadda yadda. Items got printed and out the door.

Unrelated: Is that a new Panera logo? I’ve long thought they were way overdue for an identity refresh, and though I’m not sold on this treatment at least it’s not a san-serif?
