I took a good chunk of June off—turning down some choice assignments in the process—as I moved my studio to a new location and grabbed some much needed time off at the beach with the kids. So alas, no June newsletter. But I'm rested, I'm up and running in the new digs, and I'm ready to get back to work. So if you have any projects, email me or give me a call.

This concept was based on a variation of a sketch for a Wall Street Journal illustration about low productivity among office employees who resist "going digital." While considering the idea of a transformed keyboard, the concept of a typewriter with rows of space bars rather than letters struck me as an interesting metaphor for writer's block.
