Clearly I have a book addiction (though I think you all knew that by now). I didn’t read as many books as I’d hoped this year. I was shooting for 110. As you can see, I have almost half of my collection to read, not counting the untold books I’ve yet to buy. ;D But still, I did pretty damn good!

Have a happy new year everyone!!!


task butler – app launch

https://lh5.ggpht.com/gKLqm19iAK8sFVlv4BegGs75SIg8Wb0xghuj9UaELPZ2QISQpQDhDzvVo4kPcL5pQYQ=w124Recently I designed an icon for an app that my friend was working on – Task Butler. Well Task Butler has launched and is available through Google Play for Andriod devices!


Task Butler is a personal assistant app that helps keep your life organized. Use Task Butler to keep track of all of your shopping, errands, bills, to-do lists, and more. You can group your tasks into categories to create sub-lists of similar tasks. You can assign due dates to tasks, and Task Butler will remind you when it’s time to complete them. For an especially time-sensitive task, use the procrastination alarm and Task Butler will make sure you finish it!

If you have an Andriod, be sure to download it and leave a review and rating!

Over the next few weeks I hope to make a nice webpage for it too. :]

November Books

I decided to try something new this month (and get off my graphic design ass). I turned my book stats into an infographic. ^_^ I love infographics and I’m pretty satisfied with my first attempt. (Click for a larger view)

I’ve got to get back into the swing of things and start blogging more, as well as start working on more personal design projects. I also need to get back my motivation for Mondays. Until then, here’s a random picture taken at the Animal Kingdom when I was 18.
