Welcome to Penny Press
This is my blog dedicated to art, design and the novelties that life has to offer. I write articles, essays, how-to’s, poems, lifestyle choices; I design posters, log my interests and adventures — anything and everything that brings some sort of joy or enlightenment to myself and others will be found here. If you’re reading something wondering, how does this fit into the theme, then we might just be wondering the same thing. I just try to have fun.
Words are one of my tools for navigating the world. I write articles, essays, how-to's, poems, opinions, reviews -- literally anything. I'm not saying I'm an entirely interesting person or live an exciting life, but I have things to say to people and I have a need to share things. It's also what I'll be doing until I become a professional journalist.
A Bauhaus Collection of Essays
Follow my collection of essays I write about the old design school Bauhaus. I articles explaining the culture and legacy of the Bauhaus. Through careful research and a love for the school I write these articles in hopes they'll help young designers and artists.
Like any great designer I enjoy showing off my work in hopes it'll get me hired. I do a lot of graphic design work such logos, posters, pamphlets, social media branding, etc. Feel free to contact me if I can help design something for you.
My name is Tony, I'm 22 years old and my favorite color is yellow. Los Angeles has been my hometown for majority of my life; I don't enjoy the traffic but I do love exploring the city. My education has consisted of three schools for three different majors (photography, graphic design and journalism) in five years -- no degree yet. Life has too much to offer for me to make up my mind -- I enjoy too many things. I'm on the artistic and philosophical side of the world.
My hobbies and interests curate my content. Hobbies include art of all kinds, exploring around, tiny gardening, interior decorating (my room, mostly), playing with my guinea pigs, designing logos and posters, studying art history and collecting useless trinkets. My interests are all over the place but to name a few, I like nature, animals, photography, dinosaurs, history, literature and films, the Bauhaus, backpacks, rain, Thanksgiving and Christmas -- this list could go on forever in different directions.
If money weren't an issue, I'd live in Seattle, Washington or Washington DC. I'd work for a newspaper company as a reporter and graphic designer. One of those skinny European bikes would be my method of transportation. Every morning I'd enjoy eggs with bacon and toast, a cup of vanilla yogurt with berries and I'd water all the plants that crowded my tiny apartment. My pets would know true luxury.
Hopefully this is enough to paint the kind of person I am. I enjoy good times and good company. Being able to write about my opinions and experiences means a lot to me and means even more if people are enjoying what I have to say. If you want to say something back, I enjoy constructive criticisms, comments, questions and simple hello's.
