i could tell that you wanted to...

how amazing are friendly fires?!?!
anyway, this is for Westchester Mag. from what I can tell they are a lifestyle mag from upstate NY, nice design, really nice creative director named Aiko.
anyway, this article was about "internet friends" - people who social network, and making internet friends. kind of a fun article, but im really jonesin' for a juicy business article now.
Aiko wanted me to only use 4 colours, so that was a cool limitation to play with. i couldn't decide between the two finals i did. basically i finished painting it once, scanned it in etc, then wasnt sure if i liked exactly how it looked. so i cut a stencil for a ghost screen, put that on top, rescanned and set both in. in hindsight i maybe like the greyish green shadow version best.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
