I Already Don't
Like You. 

the tumblr of an art director trying to be too clever with his blog title.
He regrets nothing

This is an Ira Glass quote translated into a beautiful typographic poster by designer Sawyer Hollenshead. You know, this is how I feel everyday. You see amazing designers (including former classmates, colleagues, and friends) produce all this awesome work and you just can’t help but compare what you’ve accomplished to what they’re doing with seemingly effortless competence.
You know the quality of work you want to do, and knowing you’re not quite there yet can be the most frustrating thing in the world. You know you can do better. I think…this ultimately is a good thing. A little drive and personal ambition can go a long way.
At least I know I’m not alone in this feeling. Gotta get better. Gotta get to work.

I'm a designer/art director/geek that likes to make things on (and off) the internet. I'm black, live in the DFW metroplex, work at an ad agency, and drink alone in the dark on week nights. While being black, I write this blog as a creative outlet.

My work has been featured multiple times by Tumblr, published in NET Magazine, Communication Arts, Adweek, The Webbys, HOW Design, W3 Awards, Web Designer Magazine, Under Consideration, Awwwards, Web Design Ledger, Web Designer Depot, Designworklife, Speckyboy, my mom's Facebook Timeline, and a variety of other publications.

I am currently unmarried, live alone, have no pets, and believe in the Oxford comma. I like eating tacos as well. Pants optional.
