I had to extract and highlight a portion of this aim conversation I had with Bryan Collins. The most delightfully positive person and a awesome art director/designer/artist to boot! We were just catching up and he'd typed some brilliance and I was inspired to create a design around it! Enjoy!

Over the Memorial Day Holiday my Fianceé and I traveled to the rustic beaches of Delaware. We met the family for a few relaxing days at the Broadkill beach house. One day we struck out and hit the board walk at Rehobeth and I took this picture! I love taffy and typography with flourishes and flows, it reminds Bello Pro... delicious!
The Blotter: While we were eating boardwalk fries, a clearly drunken and possibly meth addicted man of age asked me for "A" fry.
I was feeling nice and generous, so i obliged. As he pulled the fry out some others fell to the ground. He devoured the fry I donated and proceeded to eat the fries off the ground. Then proudly proclaimed, "The 5 second rule". His female companion seemed embarrassed at that point and started to back away. Finally, the man of age tried to chat me up... I with the help of Faith (Gracia's sister) shut him down.
He blankly lingered then walked away and it seemed that he wanted to make more of a connection but I couldn't risk more fries.

When I'm not being an a**hole. I like to think about fun positive things. Like iced cream and typography. Well, one day in the not so distant past, I had a positive thought. What if everyday everyone thought of their daily commute and happenings in between as a "Victory Lap". Road rage would be reduced to "road". Smart Ass NY Kids w/out headphones for their musical electronics wouldn't annoy you on the subway. You might find yourself embracing Miley Cyrus' tunes (please don't). You get what I'm saying. Gents, puff out your chest and take your style up a notch! Ladies, walk like everyone works for you! Act like you won the race for the day.
