Tonight I’ve been messing around with Issuu, a sleek-looking PDF publishing tool (thanks for the recommendation, deevee!). I really like that you can flip through PDF documents as if they were 3D magazines. So, I quickly pulled together a small portfolio in InDesign, outputted it as a PDF, and uploaded it to Issuu. You can see the results below.

Here is the latest addition to my ever-growing Printing Press concert poster series. I made the background using a photo I took of a magnolia tree during my excursion to High Park.
In conclusion, trees with pink flowers are awesome.
Cherry Blossom Girl
Today I went to High Park for what is probably the last day of Toronto’s cherry blossom season. In other parts of the world, they bloom earlier and last a bit longer, but because of the climate here, our peak cherry blossom season only lasts for a few days to a week! Tomorrow calls for rain, which will probably wash most of the niceness away. :(
But hey, that’s why cameras were invented! And on that note, here are some of my own photos from today.
In conclusion, I’m excited that spring is finally here! I’ve been keeping busy these days with a few freelance web projects, as well as doing some graphic design. I just completed a fairly self-centered project: designing my own business cards. I can’t wait ’til they show up some time next week! I’ll post pictures once they arrive.
• The collage above is made with my own pictures, using one of my favourite toys, Poladroid. I know I’ve mentioned Poladroid enough, but it’s so fun (and kitschy) that I can’t help myself.
• Post title is referencing the song — wait for it — Cherry Blossom Girl, by Air. Have a listen. It’s pretty.
