I’ve been very bad about keeping up with this blog… very, very bad. So much has happened since June 2009 (which is when I blogged last – yikes!). I figure it was time to revive this blog and I have plans to convert it to more of a personal stream of consciousness… so watch out! Here’s a few updates about what’s happened and what’s going on now… more detailed updates coming soon. New design first – updates later.
PERSONAL: Opie’s almost FOUR for goodness sake! He’s developed such a fabulous personality. My little baby is now a little boy! We’re also building a house (umm… the forever house) on a really awesome 11 acre lot bordering Lake Allatoona complete with pond and pasture.
BUSINESS UPDATE: Luxecetera came and went. We created a lot of fabulous art, but sadly the time came to go our separate ways… bittersweet reality. I started anew and together with my bother, Walter and my cousin, Tyrie and a handful and several awesome designers and employees and we’re running several divisions / disciplines of design of our parent company, Opieh Studios.
Braizen is our branding and custom design division. Swoone is our template division dedicated to providing great design for photographers. Wax & Ink is our custom stationery division creating custom and pre-made high-end wedding, event and personal stationery. And Patternerd is our division dedicated to creating surface and textile design. We’re still working on Wax & Ink and Patternerd and hope to get those websites up shortly. Note to self: figure out how to clone myself or time travel.
That’s it in a very small nutshell. We might be down for a few days while we get moving with a new design, but we’ll be right back. I would add pictures to this post, but sadly wordpress is SO out-of-date that it just can’t do it. I’m off to update in between working…
