The Mossletter 9

Hey Friends,

I hope you had a safe and chill Fourth of July (and found some time to recline). You may notice a change in this newsletter — I turned into a toy! (Bucket List: ✅) The plucky little guy up top was designed by a talented 3D Illustrator named Amrit Pal Singh (you should check out his stuff!)

Salud 🌤

PS: If you’d like your own custom “3D Toy Avatar”, then I would head over to Amrit’s site to order one (soon) because he’s only open to commissions for a limited time.
