four hellos

Oh, hello!

Welcome to my new blog. You can find my old blog over here. I’ll still be posting at least some partial entries over there, but here is where the real action is going to be from now on.

My rediscovery of the very awesome Hello Project has coincided nicely with the set-up of this new blog, so read on to hear my Hello Project story.

About a year ago, I started working for a financial start-up company. Now, a year later, the company is no more, but what remains are many doodled-on post-it notes. There was a lot of down time in between spurts of activity at the new company, and I doodled to pass the time using what was nearest to me–ball point pens and post-it notes. During my post-it doodling days, I stumbled across the Hello Project for the fist time, and I doodled a couple of hellos (the blue ones). But my hello doodles languished in the stack of decorated post-its for months and months.

Recently the Hello Project again came to my attention, and I was inspired to make a couple new hellos (the yellow ones).

This time, I followed through and scanned them all and sent them off to the Hello Project and now they are up on their site for the world to see! Check them out, browse through all the other hellos, and then make one yourself!

    Nice start to your blog and I’m looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeves.

  3. Love. It. Thanks for sharing the new blog and FB page. And now I have some inspiration for all the doodles I make at my job!! Can’t wait to see what other amazing things you come up with.

  4. I am a wood worker. I used one of your designs as inspiration in a wall hanging. If you are interested in seeing your design in 3d send an email and I will send you a picture. The woods used are Birdseye maple, walnut and copper wire. The copper is woven into the piece. See it. Rick, Gloucester Mass.

  5. Thanks for the heads up on using alcohol with watercolor paint. I’m doing a project where I’m painting on plastic and am looking for ways to get the paint to adhere to a non porous surface. Thanks to you I know I’m at least going to have to mix the alcohol with water. I’m going to have to look for another quick drying medium.
