Community Servings 2017

The Meals4Moms initiative raised over $19,000 dollars for medically tailored meals for their clients! I am proud to offer my design assistance. The beautiful illustrations are by Susy Pilgrim Waters.


Cutting Room Floor

Sometimes, make that often times, much of the work we do as graphic designers ends up on the cutting room floor. The reasons vary from a name that changes, multiple times! in the instance of this company that continues to acquire other businesses. But often it is due to the sheer number of directions that we labor so diligently at to afford the client a wealth of options. I think this might become a regular column so it’s going to get a category all it’s own. #The Cutting Room Floor.

Following are some of the directions we considered for a Convenience Store brand affiliated with a growing Wholesale Gas Distribution company.

Solar Wind


I’m reading Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. She talks about ‘seeing’ and her writing is voluptuous and surprising and I love this passage on solar wind* and being ‘in the flow’.

I cannot cause light; the most I can do is try to put myself in the path of it’s beam. It is possible, in deep space, to sail on solar wind. Light, be it particle or wave, has force: you rig a giant sail and go. The secret of seeing is to sail on solar wind. Hone and spread your spirit till you yourself are a sail, whetted, translucent, broadside to the merest puff.” — Annie Dillard


*Solar wind is the continuous flow of charged particles from the sun that permeates the solar system.

It’s no wonder then that the I find the best time to paint is on a beautiful sunny morning.
