Frank Chimero (and a few other thoughts)

Paper crave told me about Frank Chimero, a graphic designer who first intrigued me with his clever take on the states.

Then he charmed me with his "Nerdfest" print.

And then, because I was feeling a little fragile, my breath caught in my throat when I saw a few of his inspirational posters.

I knew it was a joke, but this is something I've thought about lately. That I can't just wait for my life to start, but it's time to live each day what I want my life to be. And the work I want to do, my dream job, is something small and quiet and special. I'm still figuring out how I'll live my dream, and it's important to remember that it takes time to do something different.

And doing something small, special, simple? That takes courage. I'm trying to be brave.
