Congratulations to my master of architecture!

Dustin, you amaze me. I don't know how you survived these last three years, but you did and you're officially a graduate. I am bursting with excitement and pride.

I wanted to make you an architecture themed card, but instead I made you a linocut of a squirrel. Because I'm weird like that. And because you have an unholy and wholly unaccountable love of squirrels.

Inside the box - an uber hip watch just for you. To keep track of all that extra free time you'll have now.

By the way, buying a Void watch is a wonderful experience. The designer, David Ericsson, is so responsive and enthusiastic. They ship internationally and I was concerned about whether it would get here in time so I dropped him an email. My watch arrived two days later! Amazing.

And because some of you have wondered what exactly it is that takes up so much time and effort, here are some photos I took of D's study model from this quarter.

I am fascinated by the little people they put in models. I love taking pictures of them.

  3. Yay! Congratulations to him - such an achievement and a lot of work! I'm loving the photos you took of the model mock ups with those tiny people - (they look otherworldly - they'd make cool postcards!) Also I am totally loving your squirrel card, (clever you! I've never tried linocuts before) way better than an architectural one! :)

  8. Congrats to D! I did not realize he was working on his masters in architecture. As someone who had some close friends majoring in architecture (and that was just undergrad), I know the kind of time it takes up - we all called the architecture building on campus the "Langford Hotel." I'm sure you can relate. =) So yay for D for finishing, and yay for you, too, for toughing it out. =]
