Painting a really large artwork in illustrator. This piece will be 2 meters wide and be very very detailed. ;) hoping to get this work finished for the Lonsdale Street Roasters exhibition in Canberra last August 2011.
Wish me luck! :D
Nice article from “A List Apart” about mobile app design. Thought this was an interesting way to categorize user’s mobile behaviors:
“In his book Tapworthy, author Josh Clark focused on three critical mobile behaviors: micro-tasking, “I’m local,” and “I’m bored.” These align pretty well with Google’s breakdown of mobile users into three behavioral groups: urgent now, repetitive now, and bored now. Regardless of how you chose to label these behaviors, mobile usage generally consists of a couple of interaction types:
- Lookup/Find (urgent info, local): I need an answer to something now—frequently related to my current location in the world.
- Explore/Play (bored, local): I have some time to kill and just want a few idle time distractions.
- Check In/Status (repeat/micro-tasking): Something important to me keeps changing or updating and I want to stay on top of it.
- Edit/Create (urgent change/micro-tasking): I need to get something done now that can’t wait.
Because they directly align with why people pull out their mobile devices, these behaviors often determine how your mobile experience can be structured and organized to meet people’s needs.”

"If you live in New York, you’re bound to end up crying in public eventually; there just aren’t enough private places."
But even the unpretty ones, snuffling, their faces like balled napkins, are mesmerizing. There is something beautiful about a disarmed stranger. We usually only get to witness that kind of vulnerability with friends or family, when something — sympathy or apology — is expected of us. Public criers ask nothing; they don’t need anyone to take care of them.
