NY Coffee Map

It took awhile, but its done! This is not ALL the coffee in NY. Its just specialty coffee so basically, go to these shops. This is going to be an entry for the They Draw and Travel contest. I think I am going to do another one that is fun, reads well horizontally, and is fun for everyone...not just coffee nerds.

Launching into danger

Sometimes its hard to have an uninterrupted breakfast

IF: Launch

weighty subject

So I am going to work on the IF theme of this week...this is an unrelated post. I worked 6 days this past week so aside from sleeping, nothing creative has been happening.

The following statements are not for bragging rights, but to illustrate a point. So, I ride about 13 miles a day and I am training for a marathon, which means (on some weekends) running for hours. I am completely happy to do these thing, and yet I cannot make myself lift weights. That's right, I will run for 3 hours...sure no problem...but lift weights for 30 like kryptonite.

So, I talked with a customer, who also happens to be a personal trainer and a really smart guy. He suggested I commit to doing one push and one pull exercise with free weights. Just do one set of each until exhaustion and that is good enough. This, I think I can do. I did it today along with some push ups and we shall see if I can bring myself to do it 3 times a week. None of this would matter if I did not have such a huge hang up about my arms. I wear almost nothing but tank tops...even in honestly, if I am going to constantly bring attention to an area of myself that I hate I should really do something about it.

I just thought it was really silly that I could have such a mind block about something that seems so simple compared to the other crap I am doing. Its so weird how easy it is to sabotage ones self.

Coffee Map in progress

coffee map of NY. Its coming! Here is the sketch without color. I am going to do another New York map....with a very squirrelly theme..hint. ANyway, this project is very fun minus the tiny type and the fact that lower manhattan is over saturated with shops. Its crazy what can happen in three years. A handful of amazing shops and now insanity. Cannot wait to see what the terrane looks like in three more years.

Coffee blog slog

Another attempt at the Coffee Blog.

Changed the banner, the style, and the motivation. This blog was stressful because I felt that I had to write something. I have decided to update this blog with images only. Why should I have to write anything. So, it will just contain coffee related things and maybe some food too. I am going to post all of the EU trip on the blog too.

The other night I went to the BBG for the rose festival and I mentioned this comatose blog. The person I was talking too said it sounded different and not like something she had ever seen before. I thought that was interesting. Keep in mind, she was in the in the coffee world, and is not aware of the gobs and gobs of coffee blogs...there are so many I could go crazy. But still, drawing and no talking. I can do that. Talking not so much. So, an attempt to manage two might seem impossible, but I am a superhero or maybe stupidhero!

To all the stupidheros out there blog!
