hellooo 2011!

Hello all and hope everyone had a happy new year!

Its been exactly one year since I began this blog and so far the journey has been great! This year I’ll post more photography posts (since some of you really liked them) and of course more design and fashion stuff. This is a big year and I’m super excited to share it with you all. This year as school begins I’m going to be taking (other than architecture courses) an architecture photography class so keep tight for some awesome photos. Also FORMATIVE will be having another show in April at USC so I’ll be posting up some designs/ sketches/ and maybe even a lookbook throughout these next 4 months. In addition in May will be what I call the most-epic-early-twenties-world-trip-ever trip. Where I’ll be backpacking along with a few friends and family first to Italy then taking a cruise touching base into Denmark, Norway,  Sweden, etc. THEN I’ll be living in France until late July, learning French, taking some french cooking classes, and of course exploring French architecture. THEN I’ll be back in california to pack for YET another few months of traveling of which I will be studying urbanism with USC all over Asia! Of course things are still being planned but please expect some sister blogs because of course there should be special blogs for special occasions.  Excited to get things on the way!

NOW with the new year I’m going to post up some products that you might possibly see upcoming in 2011! They seem pretty amazing! Can’t wait to see where technology is going to take us next.

the I marker for the ipad

The marker that is intuitively a marker, crayon, pen, pencil, and paint ALL IN ONE! No more nasty carpet and sofa stains.

The excitement of attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show often has us feeling like giddy school kids, with its overwhelming display of new technology and gadgets. For 2011 this sentiment is seemingly right on with today’s announcement of the new partnership between Griffin Technology and the revered color masters at Crayola, who will be on hand at CES with their Crayola ColorStudio HD.

Updating the timeless activity of coloring for today’s tablet technology, the ColorStudio is an interactive drawing application designed for the iPad that works by using their Crayola iMarker digital stylus.

While the iMarker acts as a marker, crayon, pen and paintbrush, the application’s intuitive technology can differentiate between the iMarker and a finger, which is used to control the rest of the sound effects, animations and challenges the ColorStudio offers alongside simple coloring.

see you soon,
