Buttons

Monday, July 29, 2019

Things found in boxes.

Did I buy these for a project? Are they from mom? I know she gave me the box. It’s a Hugh Hefner Playboy cigar box.

She had the biggest grin revealing this detail when delivering it.

But these buttons I can’t place.

There are blurry moments and I want to keep them sharp.

Queen in concert

Sunday, July 28, 2019

The show last night was pretty dang awesome (and an extra tip of the hat for this young fan letting me take his photo).

Adam Lambert still feels right at home with the members of the band and they played all the things you’d want to hear and then some.

Detroit Michigan

Saturday, July 27, 2019

First stop in Detroit? Food! Recommended: Lumen—in the very least for the building and cocktails.

Afterward? A tour of the city by the People Mover. (Also recommended.)

That’s Canada!

Lizzo!

GM!
Wait, they don’t need an exclamation point.
GM.

Sugar sugar

Friday, July 26, 2019

An update to Kroger’s packaging and branding for sugar. (The new one is on the right, which isn’t a great sign it was a successful redesign.)

I get what they’re trying to do here. I just don’t think the dart quite got to the board. Perhaps I’m missing the color photograph of the family expressing their joy of sugar.

MEN

Thursday, July 25, 2019

Not the most exciting picture of the day. (I’ve found that after a big trip, things need to be a little boring for a while.)

This bathroom door shot was taken at a restaurant in Walnut Hills while I was waiting to cash out. It was not a western themed joint. (Unrelated, there are still Roy Rogers restaurants in existence!)

The big news of the day? My awesome doctor thinks I might be suffering from allergies. This explains a lot of things! And though I don’t like taking daily medication, I like it much better than some of the ailments I searched online.

Make it matter

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

We’ve new folks in the Depot, a creative group called Matter Creative on the third floor. They had an open house for friends and family and Tom set up the press with one of their designs so visitors could flex their arms with screen printing.

It never fails, sharing the joy of screen printing is where it’s at.

Kyle with Fanta

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Quick loop into Dayton after horsing around all day to see Kim and Kyle. They always boost the spirit. I couldn’t leave without finally capturing this printed portrait of Kyle referenced here.

Refreshment

Having taken the prior day off, today was back to the work proper, which I did gladly but while giving side eye out the window to the fine weather. I was able to make burgers and mime my way through a meal on the patio as my voice was still just a bit of a whisper.

And cheers to the explosive growth in so many varieties of beer these days.
