Weekly review: Week ending February 21, 2014

This week, I focused on delegation and design. Lots of updates to my blog design, yay! =) Next week, I want to dig deeper into making useful technical resources, and to making sure my technical assistant has good stuff to work on.

Huh. That’s weird. Really? Five sketches? And yet 9.6 hours tracked under “Drawing,” and a generally relaxed week. I wonder what happened there. I think part of it was that I spent more time doing web design this week, and conceptualization got filed under drawing too.
