Hollywood Cemetery

Hollywood Cemetery is the perfect spooky place visit in Richmond. There are plenty of ghost stories and legends to celebrate Halloween.

Happy Halloween!

I chose to make my costume after the honey badger this year. No one really recognized me as a honey badger, but the honey badger don't care.

Letterpress Love

I'm so fortunate to be close to the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. This fall, Meredith and I have been taking a class that allows us to print on a really old platen press. So far we have learned a ton. For example, I knew that the graphic design term "leading" meant the vertical spacing between lines of type, but I didn't know it came from literally adding pieces of lead in between the lines of type.

It's also been fun to scour through large drawers of type to find the perfect letters.

Virginia Beach Sand Sculpting Contest

My mom came to visit me this weekend and we headed to Virginia Beach to meet up with friends & family. We all got to check out the final results of a sand sculpting contest. Competitors from around the world came to beach to show off some serious skills. I also enjoyed a lot of yummy seafood and also some delicious pumpkin spiced pancakes.
