If I wasn’t already an old man resenting meaningless tattoos somewhere in the back of my head, I’d be covered in them right now. (at Yondr Studio )

Just a good o’l fashion scanner and Photoshop.
Working on a logo for my sister’s DIY project. I’m doing my best to make it look homey. (at Yondr Studio )
Fear holds your gaze
Of course you can’t see it
It’s been there your whole life
How could you possibly see it? (at Yondr Studio)
One of our greatest hinderances in life is our unwillingness to see what is around us. Life is more than just a picture book and we can’t afford to disregard captions.
Keep eyes wide and mind even wider.

Yondr Studio is finally back together and boy does it feel good to finally have a place to work again. My life has been in boxes for the last month it seems.
You can rise up to the top
But even there you have to stop
Stop and pause and see
That the air below is free
A gift beneath your wings
Not found in selfish things
Not something that you’ve made
But something you’ve betrayed
Unless you’re giving thanks
To the thing that gave you lift
You’re only really floating
Never owning your own gift
I finally got into Portland on Friday and have been scurrying around looking for a place to live! So sorry if I haven’t replied to emails or messages. I’ve lost touch with the world for a bit while I get things set. I’m excited to be here and to have already met so many amazing people! I think it’s love at first site, Portland.
I’m currently working, from the kitchen table of a friend, on wrapping up the wedding invitation for my brother and his bride to be! I couldn’t be more excited for them as they start their own adventure soon. So much adventure.
The past year has been one of the most defining, exciting, and challenging years of my life. I’ve learned a lot about myself and a lot about people. I’ve made some amazing friends and created some great memories. This year has definitely had it’s ups and downs but for all of it I am grateful. It has prepared me in the best of ways for this next season of life.
A couple months ago I made the transition to full time freelance. That being said, I started considering some other cities. Why not? So right now I’m on the road driving up the coast to Portland, the soon to be home of Yondr Studio. I’m excited about what lies ahead and for all the new adventures that will come of it.
So please pardon all of the landscape shots for the next week as I journey up there. Im making a road trip out of it and taking it slow. I’m excited to share more soon!
