Do you have a favorite UX/IA/UI book and if so why?

I just finished an awesome book called "The Icarus Deception" by Seth Godin, which was very inspirational to me. It is about making meaningful work, treating you work as art and not selling it short. I highly recommend it. (I read it after hearing that Samantha at Taylor Studios, Inc. recommended it)

What do you do (or want to do) related to the UX field?

I used to be a freelance illustrator, but took on a graphics gig to pay the bills for the last 18 years. Now I am trying to learn, as fast as I can, to build websites.

What's the one tool that you couldn't live without? (Analog or digital)

Desktop computer

What's your Twitter handle?

I got my BFA in Illustration/Fine Arts from CSUF. I love doing illustrations, but I pay the bills with my graphic job. Just moved here from California.
