I only realised last night that just telling myself to do my essay isn’t working. I need to make smaller, achievable goals to actually be productive and be able to measure my success. Previous goal: “Write Proteorhodopsin essay.” Todays goal: “Read at least 3 papers and write at least 2 pages of essay.”
That might sound like a small goal to some of you, but that’s what I need today.
After all the “blogging goals” posts I’ve read, you’d think I could have fed some of that into my real life!
Yes, it’s true. I can’t help myself. I love making graphics and need satisfy my craving!
I changed my favicon. I think it definitely ties in better with the sites design. I don’t know if the hot air balloons are immediately recognisable in the 16×16, but I think you can figure out what they are when you visit the site.
I made a new Sony Ericcson phone theme (240×320 resolution). It’s called Ampersand and uses the ampersand and asterisk from Plantagenet Cherokee. I wanted to use the Palatino Italic ampersand, but I couldn’t get it into Blender (I think I was just dumb and tried to import the whole folder instead of the individual font file). I think the theme looks better on the phone than in the image previews.
It’s inspired by I Love Typography, mainly because the Sunday Type mentioned ampersands, so the word/character was in my head. I’m working on a desktop in a similar style for the iLT gear. Hope Johno likes it.
Update 7 June 2008: Have updated the phone theme. Available on deviantArt, AmpRevamped.
