A few times a year, I pull an all-nighter.
I like doing this for some strange reason.
A combination of a goal and adrenaline.

After 2.5 hours of sleep and a healthy set of concepts delivered,
I operated heavy machinery to get something to eat, some caffeine.

Passed this character on the way home.

Field Notes in Butcher orange

Some items I like to have on hand when I’m making stuff:
A good pen, portable paper (loving the butcher orange Field Notes),
and if I need icon inspiraton, the Handbook of Pictorial Symbols

Elder Beerman, Hamilton Ohio

I’ve passed this Elder Beerman in Hamilton Ohio more times than I can count.
I’ve even remarked about the old logo that adorns the building.
It was never busy when I drove by, and now it appears to soon be a relic.

This is sad, but things are so much different now.
I’d love for the building to find a new life,
but what purpose is does a box without windows hold?

I stayed for dinner with Tom and Wendy and their three kids.
Even though they’re out-numbered, they still manage to function.
I am amazed.

I pass by a whole set of apartment buildings in this style every week or so.
I’d love to peek inside one someday.
