White on Black or Black on White?

First I would like to apologize for not posting anything for a long, long time. Thank you for being patient with me.

Here are two exact-o knife (papercut) zebras I made with white and black cardstock paper. This goes back to the classic question: are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes?

Black on white zebras

So what do you think, white-on-black or black-on-white?

    It’s hard to choose between the two. They’re really well done. :) I enjoy seeing them both!

      Thank you! I can’t really choose either – I think I might like the black on white one better, but I’m not sure.

    I love them both!
    As for zebras themselves, it’s my understanding that their skin is dark, so I guess they’re white on black.

      Thanks!
      I didn’t know that their skin was dark – I guess that does make them white on black. But that makes sense because their noses are dark even though they don’t have hair there.

I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Fun times with the family this Fourth of July.

1 & 2: Supercute baby sis holding a crab

3 & 4: Another sis and me getting quality time at the beach

5 & 6: Supercool fishing mom Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast yesterday! The episode will be posted in 1.5 months. A work conference I was at last week supplied me with 1) bacon, 2) cheesecake, and 3) speakers who gave me the will to be a better person. I'm not sure what more you can ask for.

1/3 - We had professional photographers!

2/3 - The knight didn't save us in time.

3/3 - Some of the team I work with, good people. Almost halfway with this classic. Much more entertaining and insightful than I expected. Let's pretend I'm standing in front of a rack of spacesuits and am about to be shot to the International Space Station in order to conduct research on interplanetary travel and meet a delegation of aliens.
#skydiving What fun it is to sit down and sketch the first draft of a new app mockup.
⋯✦⋯
This how I design an app or software feature:
⋯
1. Recieve a brain dump from the person who has the concept. Scribble these thoughts down in bullet point format in one of my many notebooks.
.
(My current notebook is red with a vintage anatomical heart, which might seem a little goth, but I just intend for it to remind me not to be an emotionless robot in life.)
⋯
2. Sketch draft of initial app flow. I don't pay much attention to details at this point. It's intended for a high level proof of concept to make sure the features' structures I in envision in my head will work in two dimensions on the screen.
⋯
3. Create the screens as wireframes in the computer. Polish as I go to add detail and fill in gaps from the sketches.
⋯
4. Then I send for feedback and we iterate. This is my least favorite part, as often complicated technical questions come up I have to figure out, and I have to think at a high level of detail.
⋯
5. I take the final wireframes and create "pixel perfect" designs with color and fonts and pretty layout in Adobe Illustrator.
⋯
Then we're done with the mockups! Magic accomplished.
⋯✦⋯
(Please add occasional half-steps for procrastination. To rejuvenate my mind, of course. Heh. That's what I'm doing right now by making this post.) Found in the mental disorders section. Misplaced? I disagree with anyone who sees introversion as a disadvantage. My first Malcom Gladwell book caused my worst sunburn in a while. I read along the river for three hours facing the same direction in full sunlight without suncreen, because I mistakenly think I'm invincible to the sun. I'm still peeling, but needless to say, enjoyed the book. Valentine's Day evening well spent learning a fitting song
