I am a world class procrastinator. The plan for today was to work on a web design for a client that is long overdue. I turned on my computer, all geared up to start working- but of course I had to check my email, facebook page and rss feeds first to see if there were any updates. BIG MISTAKE.
One of the sites I follow is InspiredMag. They have a rotation of design related posts by different people every day. By far my favorite series is Be Inspired! (By Everything). It always contains links to interesting products, websites, videos, etc. Of course once you follow the link to one site, it leads to hours of surfing related sites. My discovery today was pokedstudio.com. Mind-blowing illustrations and design by an artist from Wales. His work is quirky, comedic and intensely detailed. The illustrations are mostly character-based; but the characters are odd and strangely appealing, especially the “monsters”.
The inspired post also featured the video below. I guess it sums up my day. At least I know I’m not alone! Question: do you ever procrastinate? If so, when and how? Comment please!
