Storm.

From a friend of mine’s blog. It’s EXCELLENT.


I used to cringe when I read blog posts where the author apologized for neglecting his/her blog. “It’s your responsibility to keep your blog updated! How dare you make the space and then not take the time to maintain it!” I thought arrogantly… Then I graduated my Honors degree and had to start working full-time, and my dedication slowly waned. So, yeah… I’m sorry…

None the less I have been very busy with incredibly exciting projects. InfinityCoZa has been my main focus, I redesigned the homepage and have received some fantastic feedback. Which inspired me to design some random stuff for the quick-growing brand.

I did some Hipster Guides, and loved it. There will be more coming soon, since the response has been so surprising, people really responded to these. Like Infinity’s Facebook page, or follow us on twitter, for updates.

I also made a “How To Make Friends” poster:

I’m full of ideas for guides like these… Soooo many projects… So little time… *sigh* But I did get to some graphic event reviews which you can find on the Facebook page if you’re interested. We’ll also be running competitions shortly, and publishing our adventure recommendations. I told you it was exciting stuff!

Then I’ve also started to work on my website which will showcase my new blog, my illustration and design portfolios. It will launch on ellaroo.co.za hopefully before the end of the year, but you’ll be the first to know when it does ๐Ÿ™‚

It was nice writing again. Good for the heart, you know? I’ll post again soon.

โ€œThe creator lives for his work. He needs no other men. His primary goal is within himself. The parasite lives second-hand. He needs others. Others become his prime motive. The basic need of the creator is independence. The reasoning mind cannot work under any form of compulsion. It cannot be curbed, sacrificed or subordinated to any consideration whatsoever. It demands total independence in function and in motive. To a creator, all relations with men are secondary.”

– Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

I’ve been getting to know some fellow creators recently and I am immensely excited about the epic things to come!


“The work to come, for we philosophers-to-come, lies in describing what will transpire globally in terms of individuation, whether this will be the individuation of geometry, the individuation of art, the individuation of physics, the individuation of the living, the individuation of nations, technological individuation, or psychical individuation in the Freudian sense.”

– Stiegler, The Magic Skin


I’ve improved a bit since my first try, I like this picture a lot. It reminds me of Waking Life. I took it about 4 years ago… or more, I can’t remember. In any case, the quality was horrible, but I liked the idea. I’m so glad I kept it, the edited version turned out better than I ever expected.


Kelly McKernan: “These scenes often comment on the operating consequences of idealism and fantasy due to naivety and youth with two opposing forces at work: natural inclination versus cognitive reasoning.”

“This is something that I’ve come to terms with myself – letting go of being a conceptualist and admitting to up front that I really just enjoy the act of creating. ” from her blog.

I like the eclectic feel of these labels, they’re kinda like patches and picked up things. Download the vectors here.

I especially relate to I think I secretly hate my cat (since we’ve had to keep her indoors 24/7).
