tysm @falloutboy for such a great concert tonight! You’ve always had a special place in my heart 💜 #tbt to when I used FOB lyrics when working in @archetype_press — trying to visually capture a manic episode is hard but I think I did alright. So thanks for your music. I’m forever grateful. @patrickstump @petewentz @jtrohman @hurleyxvx #maniatour #falloutboymania #falloutboylyrics #falloutboyart #typography #typographyart #songlyrics #lyricsedit #lyricsoftheday #youngandmenace #graphicdesign

I’m so excited that I got to go to my second @falloutboy concert tonight! Coincidentally, also my second concert ever. What can I say, I love their music. So much that I just had to use their #youngandmenace lyrics in a project I did while working at @archetype_press
— while working on highlighting some of the beauty in the selection of typefaces at the archetype press, I wanted to contrast it to something wildly different.
———
Mental health is a difficult journey by itself, so hearing those lyrics from Young and Menace has stuck with me all this time. It’s difficult to try to visually explain what a manic episode can feel like, though I hope I managed to do so.
So thank you @petewentz @patrickstump @hurleyxvx @jtrohman for tonight, thank you for your music and enthusiasm and your love for what you do and how you share that love with everyone around you. Stay frosty.

This is (not) a selfie.
.
Since self portraits have been a form of art, people have used them to portray themselves in a single image. Photography has made it easier to portray yourself in many more images, and with the rise of the selfie, some may say it’s changed the worth of a self portrait. They would be wrong.
.
It is impossible to portray an entire life in a small handful of images. There is no way we can explore our personal depth in one shot. Selfies allow us to explore that depth with each shot that differs from the last. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but a life is worth much more than 1000. Selfies allow us to explore all those words we could not fit in to one pic.
.
Robert Mapplethorpe was a queer man who explored himself and his world through photography. This is one of his last self portraits: one that references AIDS and the struggle against that and the apathy from people who think that queers should die, or that their suffering is some higher being’s will. And on the surface, a selfie with such a somber self portrait may seem disrespectful. But it isn’t.
.
I am very queer myself. I am a QPOC: queer person of color. And despite the scouring and burning and censorship and erasure of queer history, we’ve always been here. We will always be here. Queer people like me exist, no matter how much governments do nothing to cure things like AIDS or encourage our suffering and death.
.
Me taking the same pose of this queer artist is a deliberate act. This selfie is me continuing the legacy of queer artists. This is me celebrating my life and mourning the lives lost and this is me echoing what has past and what will come and be.
.
I have no doubt that queer people like me will continue to face persecution for years to come. But I will enjoy myself while I can and drink soda while I can and be as queer as I can be for all my life. I will take the legacy of those who have passed and continue it.
.
This is a selfie.

While I was visiting my sibling, we went to a book store and I found this beautiful book, published by @sendpoints
.
I’m an ABC - american born chinese - and part of the chinese diaspora. It’s given me insight to the cultures of both the USA and HK, but not a full immersion of either. It’s difficult for me to connect with my history. I know things like “red and gold are lucky colors!” but not a history of why. I know that paper cuts are a Big Thing, but I don’t know why, or what specific imagery means.
.
There’s a lot I don’t know about my own culture, and it’s always painful for me to admit it. This book though... it gives me insight to what life would be like if I were born in HK, born in the same place my parents grew up in. It gives me a much larger understanding of what specific imagery means, and how to apply it in appropriate ways.
.
This book gives me insight to what home could have been like, were I born and raised in HK. As an ABC graphic designer exposed only to Western design, as an ABC who wants to take pride in who I am, this book is important to me. It’s more important than the classes I’ve taken on the history of Western typography, it’s more important than the many art history classes I’ve had that focuses only on Western art. This book is important to me as an ABC who wants to learn more about their history. And for all of this, and for reasons I still have yet to formulate into words, I am so fortunate to have found this book.

For portfolio review this term, I tried to represent pieces that focused on personal identity. With that in mind, I used some of my stuff from @beyouinberlin as well as work from @archetype_press and few other pieces. I’ll try to get a better picture later. #artcenter #artcentercollegeofdesign #accd #graphicdesign #beyouinberlin #printingpress

Hi everyone! I'm going to try out the name Starscape Design for a while. I won't be officially changing any page information for now, but I basically want to see how well it fits. I'll make another announcement if I do change it.

Finals are DONE and my hair is so long that my sunglasses won't stay on my head properly! Finally time to take the term off after three full years of ACCD! Time to get my projects in order, my business in order, and my hair in order 😂 thanks @aumann_art for being a WONDERFUL professor and thanks to my classmates for being the most supportive classmates I've ever had in all my time here. Looking forward to being able to do my own thing for the first time in a long time ❤️ #archetypepress #printing #printingpress #queer #adhd #chineseamerican #asam #abc #identity
