Multi-tasking is a normal mode of operation for me. Of course, there are certain tasks where I need full concentration. But, for the most part, I feel like I'm wasting time if I'm not doing at least 2 or 3 things at the same time (Sample: Load the washing machine, turn on the news, and work on my Inbox; Read blogs, answer emails, and chat with bloggers; Cook dinner, watch TV, and download software/upload files...).
Anyway, during my blog-hopping, blog-researching time yesterday, I learned about the new moo stickers. And I got really excited. Partly because the stickers look really cool. Partly because we've been talking about producing stickers at b5media for some time now. And, partly because doodling is something that I'm really loving at the moment.
But, it struck me that even though I've been somewhat of a moo fan, I've just been a spectator. Yeah, I hate to admit it. I've never really moo'd!
I've been meaning to load some of my own photos/artwork/designs to print out as moo mini cards. However, I never got around to it. I think the idea of formatting my existing stuff to fit the right proportions for moo stuff just daunted me.
In any case, last night, just before I went to bed, I kept thinking about moo and stickers and b5media and art. So, I started doodling in my sketchbook at about 2am. I came up with over a dozen design/doodle concepts.
Today, while working and brainstorming, I decided to 'develop' my doodles. So, I ended up with 8 doodle concepts for moo stickers.
Nope. They're not official b5media stickers. I don't even know if I'll end up printing them out or not. I believe we have "official b5media stickers" coming up. These were just made for fun. And brainstorming. And, maybe just to fill-in my multi-tasking needs.
