Yesterday I discovered the excellent unDraw. Apparently, it’s been around for quite a few years now.
Anyway, after a little ‘how did I not know about this earlier?’ moment and a quick investigation, it was bookmarked and, with a determination not to completely forget about it within minutes as I usually do, I happily went about my day.
It’s now one day later and I just so happen to be starting a little personal web project of mine. And what would be the perfect little touch to start it off with? That’s right, a nice little vector illustration.
So, I go to find the bookmark and it turns out, there’s two bookmarks. Exactly the same. So, I did know about this site. For how long? Who knows. I haven’t got the best memory so it could reasonably be anywhere from a month or two, to years.
And, I’m fairly certain it’s not the only duplicate in there …
Anyway, the point of all this rambling? It’s about time I did something and that’s where this post comes in.
My resource ‘Hall of Fame’ if you will. A place to memorialise the less used, but nonetheless worthy resources of mine. Never again, to be lost in the annals of time.
Probably not too much use to anyone else, but just the thing for me.
