As many of you know my wallet got thieved a few weeks back and my chicago card was in there as well, so I finally received my replacement card and this is how it was packaged below:
and when you unfold it, it's directions! How fun. Good work CTA, you finally did something right.

and with ink-looking lines?

Phase 2...?

I realize some of these may not look very different to you, but I am stuck. I am making a print of the chicago skyline for someone. I need help:
2. with blue lines
3. New colors/no lines?
4. GO CRAZY?! Wait I think I like this the best, and it's the most masculine?

Tell me what to do. Thanks for your help :)

Phase 1:

Courtney's prints...

A friend asked me to recreate a print she found in Spain, but couldn't find a copy anywhere anymore. This is my version above. 

memory project

My art teacher from high school is putting on this project where she has her students paint portraits of kids in Dharamsala, India and then send it back to the kids. My mom ran into her recently and got me the information to do one, now that she is extending the project to outside her classroom. Read the article HERE
I'm excited and will post more when I get a portrait and more info! I just wish I could go to India as well.

Star Wars in Concert

Hahaha, Mickey got us tickets to see Star Wars in concert yesterday on my birthday. As nerdy as this sounds, it was a pretty a cool show to see. The symphony orchestra played along to clips from all 6 movies, and were so good. Oh and Mickey dressed as a Jedi (far right). lol. He had to as part of the deal to get our free tickets... or so he says ;) hehe. Oh and we do NOT know these other nerds

Playing in South Carolina but not in Chicago?

Thanksgiving weekend through my phone:

I went to Columbus for Thanksgiving again this year to visit Meg and Doug. We had an awesome dinner and had a good rest of the week. Here's a few pics from my trip:
Pre-Thanksgiving snack before turkey
My apple crumble I made. YUM
Wandering around the OSU library...
View from the top of the library 
Wexner center: Politicians/news anchors etc. before their interviews. Each TV had at least 15 minutes of the interviewee sitting in silence waiting for questions. Haha.

These shoes make me feel like a little girl :) . 

1st blackhawks game

Went to my first Blackhawks game last night. They won against the San Jose Sharkies. At first we had "standing room only" seats which meant lean up against the rail by the bar on the top–which really wasn't that bad, but then we got to sit with a couple of guys Mickey know who had empty seats by them in the 9th row. UPGRADE.
Seats before:

Seats after:

Heyy I did this logo:
