What am I doing now?

"What's up, Paulo?"

In July '22 our collective design efforts for McDonald's went public in the US. Although my fingerprints are all over (with tidbits I've done), the drive-thru checkout graphics are mine mine all mine 😊

> I wake up everyday at 4:40 ~ 5:30 am. I do it for an hour. Always using Insight Timer App to track it.



"I was fascinated by OpenAI's Dall-e. But then I started using Adobe's Firefly last week (April 24). And it is a different creature on its own."

Here are some Dall-e generated images:

"Gangster squirrel counting his money"

"Nike Air Jordan sneakers imagined by Monet"

"Batman night scene painted in oil by Vincent Van Gogh"

And Firefly's:

"Vintage tin toy robot with intricate painted details and simple plastic eyes"

"Octopus creature with diamond glasses singing in underwater bar stage"

"Batman inspired superhero made of stone standing in front of a mayan statue"

"Ultraman-like hero in front of dark galactic butterflies in heroic angle"

The album is a variation of the Mexican skies photo collection I created when we moved 2018 from Brazil to Metepec, a small town an hour outside Mexico City.

Geneva, IL

Metepec, Mexico

To emulate the healthy living experience we had in Mexico, we choose to settle an hour out of Chicago. Away from the gray high rises and traffic jam. Geneva is our home now and we intend to stay here through our daughter's HS.

> While we were 3 weeks away in Brazil sorting our paperwork, she was fostered by good friends. She managed to forget about us during the period. Once back in our place, it took her 2 days to remember who we are.
