Sketchbook Selfies

This is a little game I like to play with myself. I'm always snapping pics of the scenes I go out and draw, so from time to time, I'll take a sketchbook "selfie" (to use the buzz word). Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. Here are some of my favorites.

Major Award

I don't know how major, but considering I've entered (many) competitions and won zero times, this is pretty major to me. Last month, my former coworker at Barkley emailed to inform me that our team had won a Kansas City Addy award. We worked really hard over the summer repositioning the Stride Rite brand, so it was nice to get some recognition. Here is one of our winning pieces.

And one of the work in progress.

*this just in: It appears Barkley has just won the On The Border account. Aaaannd, I am going back the Kansas City...now. Just kidding (sort of). Congrats to them!
