My wife and I had our first baby on Thanksgiving and for the birth announcement, I made a mix CD. I used the old Blue Note record designs of the 50’s and 60’s as inspiration. I sent around 50 of these out to family and friends. All the songs have the word “Baby” in their titles.
I finally finished up a new portfolio site for myself. Go check it out if you are interested…
Dad has four-year-old daughter. Daughter asks dad to draw something. Dad draws. Then, daughter critiques drawing. Then dad posts the crtique and drawing on his blog. Brilliant!
The Brief: A mama snail and a baby snail
The Critique: I’m sorry to say that you’re worser than me. You gotta learn to draw as me. You just don’t draw so well. Why do you think that is? It turns out that I’m the good draw-er. It turns out that you’re the art director.
Artists Note: The critique is on the initial sketch, and compares to hers. She actually likes the painting.
Job Status: Provisionally Approved, pending addition of jumping fish in the lake

HillCrest Vineyard is a local winery. It is Oregon’s oldest established winery. I was asked to build their first website which i was very pleased to do. It is built in Joomla! and uses the Virtuemart shopping cart which I customized for the site (coming soon!)

Yes, I have created my first word and that word is:
loink: n. A broken web URL; A link in a web page that either goes to the wrong location or nowhere at all.
That’s right. That’s MINE! You can go suck it, Urban Dictionary. We already have PLENTY of different words for “penis”, thank you very much. You DO NOT need this one.
Oh YES! I FINALLY I finished my 2008 mix CD. Every year, I take all of the music that was released in the previous year and distill the songs down to a manageable fifteen to twenty tracks. I burn them on to a bunch of CDs and send them out to all my friends. WAY better than Christmas cards I think. This is year four or five and I do really enjoy doing it.
I also make a swell original cover for each “release” because God knows I need more portfolio pieces that reflect the work I WANT to do, not the work that I am forced to do.

Hey, that’s my wife! This is the cover of this years InUmpqua visitors guide. I wanted them to use this one but someone said that the blurry water was going to be, “…too confusing.” WTF!?! I’m trying to make my dog famous! Anyway, here is the original…
