If you're interested in the beauty and meaning of Japanese kanji, please add me as contact.

While living in Japan, I wrote two illustrated books, ‘Kanji Pictographix’ and ‘Kana Pictographix.’ Returning to the States, I taught information design at Art Center and digital imaging at The American Film Institute.

VizCab.com is my design studio for the design books, mobile apps, wine labels and packaging, and logos, company and product naming, and branding.

“If you can't make it good, make it big.”

“If you can't make it good, make it big.”
Michael Rowley

“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Rosemary Michael, I just took a quick look at papernapkin.com and think it is marvelous. Fifty States of Mind is the most exciting approach to U.S. geography I've ever seen. Congratulations!
