From Greycons to Focus...

As of today I will be taking a break from design. A long break.

My icon packs will stay on the Play Store, at least for a little while. I haven't decided if I'm going to delete them all and suspend my dev account yet. Focus will stay as is, saturated as fuck and still in beta. If you want a refund shoot me an email.

I rarely share about my personal life here, and there is good reason for that. Its a mess and I need to fix it. I hope you all understand.

Its not that I don't fucking love you guys, because I do. Y'all have made the last three years a blast, from the haters and trolls to the true fans.

For now though, I have to ensure my family's financial stability, especially since we moved. And chasing dreams doesn't pay the bills. At least not for me. Anymore anyway.

Hopefully one day I'll be set and won't have to work a 'normal' job or two or three to make ends meet and I will be able to get back into what I love doing because this hurts. Seriously.

Some of you are thinking the obvious; "Why not just work a 9-5 and design at night and on the weekends?" I wish. The cost of living is on the rise pretty much everywhere, while the minimum wage is stagnating. Now minimum wage shouldn't matter to an individual with my skill set, but there I'd a huge catch.

I'm a felon. Yeah, yeah. Almost ten years ago I sold some pot and a bag of mushrooms to an old friend who turned out to be working for the police. And that earned me a 5-Life sentence in the Utah State Prison. When it comes to finding decent work, the only places that will hire me are restaurants, garages and general contractors, all of whom pay as little as legally possible (with zero benefits). So, in effect, I need to be working as many hours that I can clock as possible because we are drowning here.

I hate it and it fucking sucks, but that's just the way it is. I'm disabling comments because this isn't an attention grab or anything like that, its just a quick blanket statement so y'all don't think I died or whatever. If you want, you can still hit me up on hangouts or shoot me an email if you need anything.*

With much love,

Alex M. (arandompackage)

Learned a valuable lesson today:

When on a solo shoot, steer clear of treachery, such as sheer cliff faces near the sea. If one were to fall, or become injured, they'd be screwed. Especially when the ocean has no cell reception.

That is all, have a safe weekend everyone.

Holy shit you guys; I just made the perfect burgers for me and +Ashley Miller​. Took a little over an hour total with prep, cook and presentation. We were so hungry by the time they were done no photos were shot.

Let me paint you a word picture instead. The difference in our preferences is actually kind of night and day.

Ashley's build:

Bottom bun (Love's brand.)
My bombay caramelized onions (Maui sweet onion used)
Burger (Maui Cattle Co. Beef, well done)
Thick slice of sharp cheddar
Ketchup
Top bun

My build:
BB
Caramelized onions
Burger (medium)
Thick pepper jack
Moar caramelized onions
Thick slice of Kula tomato
Spicy garlic ketchup
Regs mustard
TB

We both would have added lettuce, however, I used it up this morning prepping lunch for work. Oh well, whatya gonna do?

I'm so hungry! To me it doesn't matter what ingredients a booger is topped with. It's the love you put in it when cooking and prepping & it's the same with icon design or any other passion that gets you out of bed each day, excited about what comes next. Too often in life we must set our passions aside for better pay, to make ends meet etc and Yada Yada Yada. One would think that is the only choice, the responsible choice, but it isn't. That bitter, angry old man or woman down the street payed the price for keeping up with the neighbors. No more starving artists these days because everyone tells them "hey get a job you bum while no one says "stay with your passion, it's worth the struggle. I think the American government has grants and subsidies for artists. Whoever told you that you can't have both a job and stay with what makes you happy icon designing is wrong! No need to close your store or even stop designing. Just slow the pace way down and work on sleepless nights, nothing else to do etc. Lose your passion and everything else will follow it and you'll become that bitter angry old man from down the street.
