new building project

anonymous asked:

you play acnl? i love that game so much but i have such a hard time getting back into to since i have to play like everyday.. do you have any tips? also, do you have any screenshots of your town? :3 ty ily ♥

i do! i agree, you have to put some work into it. when i started my game up again i was anal about keeping the time clock fixed at first, but then i just kinda said… screw it, and now i adjust it to move forward and do all the different stuff i want to do. i guess the biggest piece of advice i can offer is to take it easy on yourself, try building new projects, adjust the time, just have as much fun as you can!! you can always fix stuff later on if you want, it’s no biggie. i also sold my town so that now on my restart i have like… 10 million bells to play with. it’s a blast! i’ll make a post with a screenshot here in a minute. :} yw ily2 ♥♥♥


WIP : Providence Cross

I started a new building project. This part is one of three buildings that constitute the whole project. It will be a big inn with shops on the ground floor and an outdoor tavern at the back of the building.

For the moment I have not built the ground floor. This section will have 4 floors. One of the buildings will have 5 floors.


Concept art for my new world building project. 

Basically, she is part of one of four big cultures in her world, and in the culture  she comes from they believe that the path to ascension is “perfection”. They still haven’t really figured out what that is though…

They like black (it’s what you get if you mix all colours, so they think it’s the ultimate one), metall and stone. 

I might write something more detailed about this if I feel comfortable with it.

Sorry, Portland, but you brought Californians and gentrification and everything else you hate on yourself. You practically demanded that things be this way. See, there’s a detail about the Portland gentrification problem that lifetime residents consistently leave out when demonizing California for all of their city’s woes. In 1999, home builders in Portland pressured the Oregon Home Builders Association to lobby the state senate to impose a ban on something called inclusionary zoning. What’s that? Oh, just a type of zoning regulation that requires developers to dedicate a certain percentage of any new construction project to building affordable housing for residents. … The only other state in the nation that bans inclusionary zoning is Texas, if that gives you any idea what realm of progressiveness residents entered into when they decided to “keep Portland weird” by preventing poor people from moving to the hipper areas of their eventual Utopia.

Introducing Whitney Stories!

We’re excited to announce the launch of Whitney Stories, a video series and online publication offering a behind-the-scenes look at preparations for the new building through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the construction team. The videos will be released regularly through spring 2015 at


We’re excited to introduce a new look for the Whitney!

Design studio Experimental Jetset developed the new approach, which embraces the spirit of the Museum while serving as a visual ambassador for our new building. The result is a distinctive and inventive graphic system that literally responds to art—a fundamental attribute of the Whitney since its founding in 1930. This dynamic identity, which the designers refer to as the “responsive ‘W’,” also illustrates the Museum’s ever-changing nature.

You can view the new identity on the redesigned and via this introductory video. You’ll be seeing much more it at the Museum, in our mailings and advertising, and elsewhere over the next few weeks. We welcome your comments via Facebook and Twitter.
