Redberry

PLEASE READ: Due to changes in schedules, our upcoming workshop with Erik Spiekermann, which was previously scheduled for July 25–26 has been changed to August 7–8, 2014. 

“You don’t just hit the button ‘delete,’ there is no ‘delete,’ there is no ‘return,’ you have to touch everything. You have to think and plan a little more, and what you do is very permanent. ” – Erik Spiekermann

Our exclusive two-day workshop with Erik Spiekermann is for anyone who is interested in typography and letterpress. On August 7–8, you will work and learn with your hands. You will design and set up your own press, and experience the traditional letterpress printing under the guidance of Erik Spiekermann and five instructors at the P98A gallery. Having your own press to work on, you will print from wood, lead type, woodcuts, and polymer plates.

Lunch today was epic

Reflecting on life…

Since I’ve moved to St. Louis this past October, I have learned a lot about myself. I had foolishly thought that I knew a little bit about what is like to live away from home, since I had attended college out of state. So when I had officially moved to Missouri, I was surprised by the things that happened to my general thought process and attitude towards life.

Looking back now it seems like it was a huge change to my general way of life, but in the moment it didn’t seem that bad, or even that significant—I was just doing what I felt that I needed to do at the time. Perhaps it is because there was so much that I had to figure out about myself that I just wound up exploring everything I could (it also helped that I had a decent amount of money saved up which allowed me to do so).

Now, things seem slower, but in a methodical way rather than a sluggish one. I am still looking for a full time job, but I feel that I am making good progress on that each new day, however, it is difficult doing this while having a serving job, relationship trouble, bills, and all that other nonsense that life seems to toss our way. But I have to say that I am happy with myself. I am still on the path that I set out from just about a year ago, which is to start my professional life, and will not quit until I do.

In the past year, I have met some fantastic people who have been very helpful in keeping my spirits up when I could otherwise been depressed. And at the end of the day, even the bad ones, I still feel like I am doing the right thing, and that I will make it in this world. All I have to do is keep working hard, and not quit.

Anyways, that’s all I have for now. If you’re still reading thanks! I’ll try to write again soon.

Best,
Ben
