Here was a fun DIY project I helped out with at Auggie back in November 2013. Robot March is one of their more popular prints, so we thought it would be cool to let kids print and color in their own robot creations. My sister, mariahmakes did an awesome job with a set of her own, so we did a mini photoshoot on her desk (using a folded yellow duo-tang as a backdrop). Filing this under “things I do at work that don’t feel like work.”
You can still build your own bot HERE and be sure to tag it #robotmarch if you’re posting it up on Instagram so that we can find it.
A few days ago, I launched this website for Alexandra Votsis, a Toronto fashion photographer currently studying and working in Florence. Much of the focus was in making it easy for her to upload, edit, and organize the photos herself, as well as creating a layout that presented them in a way that worked on most mobile devices.
This turned out to be one of the funnest projects I’ve done in a while! Despite being in different time zones, communicating with her was such a breeze and we both had a similar idea in mind from the start. Go peep her portfolio!
Since you guys liked it so much, I made my little drawing into desktop/mobile wallpapers in a few fun colors! Y’know, just for those days you need to remind yourself that you’re great. From the wise words of ~Arabelle~

“DIY is DESIGN IT YOURSELF. It’s absolutely NO FEAR. If you can’t fucking do it, LEARN HOW. You have to go out there and make it happen. You have to bullshit your way to any situation you can. If you don’t know how to design a house, it doesn’t matter. You know what to do. It’s inside of you.”
