I was just looking at my email signature & had to giggle in this new year about it. Everything is “jenHarris09”. When I started labeling myself, “JenHarris” was taken (she is a California photographer) so I added my college volleyball number to the end. After being laid off at MPC & the eventual closing of the computer manufacture, a friend of mine that I worked with decided to finally get on twitter (more to shut me up more than anything else). When he first appeared (Christmas of ’08) I urged him to change his handle to his real name (which was taken) with an added number to it. So being the funny man he is….he added “09” to the end. Of course I thought it was a pretty funny-smart-arsh-clever way to, again, shut me up…but his reason was:
“I figure that ’09 is, and has to be, better than ’08”
So with that looooooooonnnnnnnnngggggg background story, here is why I want you to check him out: he is an AMAZING artist! He use to doodle in meetings the most amazing vines, lines, stripes and designs that took my breath away. He does these family trees (see to the left) that make me tear up almost every time I look at mine. Everyone in our family has one & it has been a huge conversation piece when we have friends over.
I have no reason in writing this except that I love his artwork and I want you to check it out.
Enjoy & here’s to making twenty ten SO MUCH better than “09”
