Oh Yoo Yoo and Yoo....

So if you google Jane Yoo, there are ALOT of us. In particular, there is a bag designer named Jane Yoo and her line is called Jane Yoo Leather Handbags or Jane Yoo Wearable Art. She doesn't have a real website that I know of or contact information about her so when her customers have an issue or a question... they find my website and email me instead. Some even send me very lengthy emails about how they love the bags, or how much their mother/grandmother/daughter love the bags etc and would love to have them repaired. I feel really bad just not answering them so, of course, I email them back.

It really wouldn't be a problem, expect that I get emails for her about.. 2-5 times a month. I have no way of contacting her myself so I have to tell these women that I can not assist them.. ugh. I think thats quite a lot, if I had costumers that had questions or w/e I would want to have them be able to contact me and/or my department. if you calculate, it's about 60 people a year.

Anyway.. I just wanted to rant a bit and perhaps deter anyone else from emailing me about her bags if, bychance, they read this first.

Do you have any issues with someone who has your name?

Summer Solstice

Officially summer :) Hope everyone had their fill on a full ray of sunshine today!

Done for the 15 minute exercise. 

Stroll Around your Neighborhood

I believe that every neighborhood has their own special beauty and charm. Living in Brooklyn, it DEF. had it's own style and pizazz. For a school assignment, we were to shoot photos of an environmental space and create them into a magazine story. I chose the walk between the Pratt campus, to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. These were some of my results:

Hipster Town

Williamsburg in NY is a pretty neat area to go to. During my college days, friends and I sometimes went there for restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping, or just to walk around. There are a ton of art galleries or just random art on the street. We also took loads of playful pictures.

Quick as a Fox

I  actually did this vector a long time ago but I thought I would share it.
It isn't being used anywhere yet but I've been getting some great ideas..

I was sorta reminded of the fox vector when I was watching Home Movies with their use of shadows. I thought it was simple and clever.

Harry Potter Me

Hope Everyone in the USA had a fabulous Memorial Weekend :)


(Honestly.. I don't really spoil much of the book and if I did.. shame on you for not reading them!)

The LAST movie of Harry Potter is coming out pretty soon... I feel soo many emotions about this. I'm gonna be honest by saying that I did get into Harry Potter BECAUSE I saw the first Movie in theater. But (of course) after reading the 3rd Book, I was completely hooked with the series. Sirus became my favorite character, which is why the 5th book literally tore my heart out. The 7th book.. LA LA LA, lets just say most of it didn't happen. Oh JK Rowling...

Anyway I thought I would share an oldie but a goodie poster I did during school. Assignment was to simply depict your favorite quote on a poster size of 18x24. Being who I am, (complete Harry Potter nerd) I chose the following:

"Happiness can be found even in the Darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the Light." --Albus Dumbledore.

One of my favorite quotes of the series... I think its pretty self-explanatory. :)

What is your favorite Harry Potter Quote?
