100 Things About Me (Part I)

Back on a couple of my previous blogs (2001, 2003) I shared 100 things about me posts. Somewhere I actually have that list written out on paper. I’ve often thought how I’d like to share a list like that here on this blog, but I also know 100 items is a lot of things to expect a reader to go through. So, I’ve decided to break it up into bite sized posts, 20 items at a time. Read the complete 100 Things About Me in parts I, II, III, IV, and V

Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).

  1. This is going to gross you out… my mom had a boyfriend whose job it was to make styrofoam, so he always used to bring back samples of weird styrofoam in bizarro shapes from his tests.

    Unrelated to this post, but I just watched your art-o-mat video, and I’m super inspired now. That’s on my big to-do list before my 34th birthday. I love your little tiny canvases and how you packaged everything.

  2. I think this is among the most significant information for me.
