I've been in a bit of transition the past few months ... finishing school, applying for, getting an offer for, and starting a summer internship, gearing up for real life again post-educational redo. And so ends the PollyMimi phase.

I've grown so much over these past two years - artistically, professionally, intellectually, personally. I can thank many people for that, people I met along the way, professors, professionals, my classmates. Hours and hours of inspiration hunting, practice designing, taking photographs, and reading have also contributed. I'm in a very happy place right now - I'm interning at an award winning web design and development agency called Blenderbox and I'm really loving it. I can design all day and not get sick of it. It's a wonderful place to work, and my school withdrawal symptoms aren't so bad since I'm learning so much on the job.

Artistically, I want to start a new blog, because I think my style has really refined itself and evolved over these past few years, and PollyMimi is more of an exploration than a consistent expressionistic series.

But it's been real, and I hope my work evolves even more as I gain more experience in the design world. Sayonara, PollyMimi :)

Got back from Barcelona, but didn't get around to the post-processing grind until this weekend. These are some artsy black & whites I worked out ... here is a link to the full album. I hope I captured the beauty that was that city adequately.

cranes for japan

My roommate and I hosted a big brunch at our apartment in Park Slope this past Sunday. Paper crane folding ensued ... details (email from a friend) below.
Hello friends,

As many of you know, most of my family members live in Japan. Many of them experienced the earthquakes (there has been non-stop earthquakes - larger the 6.0 - since Friday) but luckily they are all ok.

There is a Japanese tradition called Senbazuru or 1,000 origami/paper cranes. A crane in Japan is a very holy creature and if I remember the legend correctly, Japanese people believe that folding a thousand paper cranes will bring happiness, prosperity and recovery from illness.

I would like to create a senbazuru and send to my family in Japan to list their spirits up. If any of you are interested in learning how to fold origami cranes AND want to help me make 1,000 cranes, just let me know.

For those of you in NYC, maybe we can get together this weekend and fold some paper cranes. Those living outside of NYC, I can send you folding directions and you can just mail me the crane or multiple cranes!
