Neat & Keen is the creative umbrella of John Everett Morton. My goal is to produce items that foster community and personal growth while maintaining a unique style and using responsible resources.

May 1, 2022: I quit my job. I borrowed some money. I’m currently on week 3 of a full-time UX Design course. I’m feeling really self-conscious about this custom WordPress theme that I’ve been limping along with for 10 years. There will be a blog post about it soon. And although this site was never going to be where a final portfolio was going to be showcased, now that I’m picking up all these new skills I’m thinking about what the future of Neat & Keen looks like (both the web site and the “business”).

April 11, 2022: Things have been slow on the blog front. I just finished an introductory course in UX/UI design. A week from today I start a full-time course for 15-weeks. Exciting. Scary. Currently building a custom display riser for my new computer. More to follow.

January 6, 2022: I’ve done a super soft launch of the Neat and Keen Catalog Cards for vinyl record collecting enthusiasts like myself.

January 4, 2022: Happy New Year! Damn. I’m behind on everything. Been working on some things. On the fence about some ecommerce stuff (it would be nice to sell some artwork this year). There’s been some interest in my Catalog Cards for vinyl records. I’ll announce on my social media outlets below when I’ve got a little more information. The bottom line is: Yes, you may buy some. I’ve just ordered 10,000 more.
