Blood of the Young Zine: BOTY Q&A with Adam J. Kurtz
I’ve been trading email and real mail with Adam for a while now after my sister turned me onto his work. While the stuff he makes isn’t necessarily the kind of thing we’d typically share on BOTY, I think it’s safe to say that our whole crew loves some good word play…
BOTY just posted a little interview — I don’t quite fit with their usual focus, but I think there’s some crossover and I love what they do. Thanks, guys!

IMPOSE Magazine posted an interview/feature in their “Paper Plain” column. Sahara Shrestha asked me about all the important things, like feelings, coffee, my Positive Inking posts, and the internet, of course.

Matt Carr took this crazy photo of me earlier this summer, somewhere in south Brooklyn. He’s a really cool guy, with a portfolio of all kinds of interesting people and celebrities and people who matter, and also another photo of me.
Also, I’m finally printing SAD GIRL FAN CLUB tees if you want one!

Anonymous asked: Do you have a "real" job next to your tumblr/designer/whatever-kind of employment?
“Designer” is actually a “real job.”
I have a “real graphic design job” with an “internet marketing company.” It is “on my resume.” I organize visual content (“design”) on our client sites, code email newsletters, and do various special projects. I like my boss & co-workers, and appreciate the flexibility it affords me.
It’s not always the most fun every day, which is why I have my “whatever-kind of employment,” where I employ myself to make myself happy for zero dollars an hour. I spend a lot of my free time making and doing, and this blog is obviously a major part of that process. Support from people on tumblr is what allows me to keep moving forward.
My personal projects are not “work” to me. Maybe one day they will be my work, or maybe one day my brain will be employed at a “dream job,” I don’t really know.

Topher McCulloch has been doing pixel art variants on his older sticky notes project via Make Something Awful Every Day. He did this portrait last month but I never shared it, go take a look at the rest of his series!

10 People Who Inspired Me This Year
More than anything, this year has been about learning. I honestly feel that this personal growth has manifested itself in every part of me, visible to old friends in daily scenarios, or casual observers of my internet output over the last few years. I am proud and excited and not sure where I’m headed, but I know that I owe a lot to the people around me, both immediately, from a distance, or without their knowledge.
This list is not in order of importance: Alexander Barrett, Nicole Lavelle, Dustin Williams, Bubby Peck, Nathaniel Russell, Paul Octavious & Paul Windle, Chris Day, Matthew Stone, Na Kim, and Christopher Muccioli.
