People often ask what I do for a living and are very enthusiastic when I tell them I am a Graphic Designer. They think that I spend the whole day drawing - if only! Joking aside, having a career in graphic design can be very rewarding, even though it has it's pros and cons. So, what if your son or daughter expresses an interest in becoming a graphic designer? Should you encourage them?RemunerationWhen I said the job was very rewarding, I didn't m...

On this day in 1916, the first Black-owned film company, The Lincoln Motion Picture Company, was founded. 

Lincoln was the creation of African American actor Noble Johnson and his brother George Johnson (a postal employee in Omaha). 

The company only lasted until 1923 but produced five films for African-American audiences. The first Lincoln production was a drama called "The Realization of a Negro's Ambition" (1916). The second was titled, "A Trooper of Troop K," (1917), which dealt with a massacre of Black troops in the Army's 10th Cavalry during the American operation against Mexican bandits and revolutionaries in 1916. The other three films were The Law of Nature (1917), A Man's Duty (1919), and By Right of Birth (1921).

In 1923, the company announced that its next production would be The Heart of a Negro. However a few weeks after this announcement, Lincoln Motion Picture Company discontinued operations. The increased cost of movie making in the 1920s and the widespread economic effects of the Great Depression forced most independent Black film producers out of business. The African-American community did not have the financial resources, especially in hard times, to sustain independent Black film enterprises.

George Johnson completed 37 years as a postal employee. He compiled an extensive collection related to blacks in the movie business, which is now held by the UCLA Research Library. Noble Johnson continued his acting career and appeared in more than 140 movies from 1915–1950.

My favorite writer on writing died. William Zinsser, author of "On Writing Well" died yesterday. He was 92 years old. Was his book any good. I don't know. It sold 1.5 million copies. His students and readers are practically every non-fiction writer I look up to.Stephen Dubner, who wrote Freakonomics, first recommended him to me. I've always hated books like Strunk & White's Elements of Style but I was looking for a good book on writing nonfiction...

In memory of Bette Lara.
If you wait until a birthday to tell someone how much you love them, then you may have waited too long. If you wait until a holiday to express appreciation towards someone in your life, then you may have waited too long.Don’t wait for the holidays or marketed special days to express kind words and tender affections to the people you care about. That’s when everyone else is doing the same things. Set your moments apart and build upon them with a g...

 Understanding what makes a designer a true problem solver is a question many have. In my experience, you have to know yourself and understand how to create genuine interest in others, for others, and beside others. Here is a list I’ve compiled to teach younger designers, as well as experienced veterans what to keep in mind daily. I would love to hear about your design pillars / principles in the comments as well! Original post: http://bit.ly/1E3...

Lucid and vivid dreaming. Are you a vivid or lucid dreamer?

Great information. Great read.
The best career “gift” (read: job opportunity) may come in an ugly box—open it anyway.I grew up in Southwest Virginia. After Marriott hired me in 1989, I waited for my first assignment dreaming of “exotic” locations like Hawaii or New York City.  When the envelope arrived, I literally cried.  They sent me to (drumroll please….) VIRGINIA!  Huge downer.  But, little did I know that this hotel was only a few miles from corporate headquarters, which ...

Running with my mind on fire
Introduction
I could fly. Really. Even without my wings or my jet pack. My big sister Mae thought I was crazy and dared me to fly in front of the whole world. She knew I couldn't resist a dare.
Bragging rights
The superhero in me still wakes up... Ready to solve creative problems. What's next?

I purchased a Groupon Deal for this place and figured I'd take a chance. Wow. Very good stuff. I love Indian food and can't get enough of the spices. I was not disappointed. My Groupon Deal gave me 3 free meals for some crazy low price. This might become another place to hangout for lunch.

Vincent does a great haircut. Runs a clean barber shop and I've never been disappointed. Haircuts are around $20-25 dollars. He also offers shaves.

We waited over 20 minutes for our salads... Then another 20 or so after we finished to get our meal. The table next to us had been in the restaurant for 2.5 hours and asked to have their final order boxed up. Guess we were the lucky ones.

This was a fantastic experience. I took my wife there for her birthday and it truly was one of my favorite Seattle dining experiences. Add Novilhos to your list for sure!

I use to be a Monday night regular for the silent auctions until I moved to Washington State. Mark treated me fairly. Always looked out for whatever I collected. I miss that place! Paul
