- So many incredible things happening at once. Most of all, the release of my book 1 PAGE AT A TIME by Penguin Random House! It’s a weird, personal, introspective, fun creative journal and I can’t believe they let me make it. I can’t believe I got a book deal. I can’t believe it’s going to be out in the world on October 7th and people will own it. I can’t believe it’s being translated into different languages. I’m going on a small book tour. I never thought I would be a published artist/author… it’s crazy.
- I’m learning the power of just… asking. Jessica Walsh, who is such a fucking superstar talented designer smart person is going to have a chat at my book release party in NYC. My favorite comedian Kate Berlant is performing at the same event. James Victore recently tweeted “adamjk does not fuck around.” Michelle Branch posted my book. I love Michelle Branch!
- Most important of all are the anniversaries. A year at my full-time advertising job. Two years with an amazing guy who I am still totally obsessed with. Approaching three years in New York. I’ll be 26 years old this month and it all feels incredible. I can’t believe this is my life.

This week’s post has put me at the 3-year mark in my week in scraps project!
One little change, I’m going to start uploading images at twice the size so you can snoop on the details a little bit better. This week’s is the first where you can click-through and read menu prices and that sort of thing.

We’ll have Karl Ove Knausgård “My Struggle” Mad Libs with kickstarter at 8, dancing with DJ sammybananas at 9, and free drinks as long as they last.
Hope to see you there!
