Turkey wishbone, tug-a-war.
Between a toddler and spaceship who wants it more.
And when the spaceship gets the victory it makes the simple wish,
that the Model-T car and the beer jar will kiss.
blah blah, nana nana nah (teleprompter failure)
...turned on the lights.
The BEER JAR'S LIPSTICK WAS ALL OVER THE MODEL-Ts FENDER!!
And when both of their spouses found out, it was a marriage ender.
Oh Turkey bird this is your lucky year because we plan to set you free!
And you will run wild in the forrest with your turkey-friends, enjoy it!
'Cause then we're gonna come after you, with the sharpened teeth of a rabid toddler.

My Car and Star Trek - Info GraphicA mysterious event happened. My car, which I had named Kimchichi because I bought it off my Korean friend, was stolen.
On the opening night of the first Star Trek movie, Kimchichi was stolen from a movie theater in California. Fast forward several years to the opening night of the second Star Trek. A police officer calls to inform me that my car (aka Kimchichi) has been found in Texas, it still runs but is now painted green.
If there was one thing I would ask the thieves it would be:
What did you think of that moldy loaf of rotten sough dough bread I had left in the front seat of the car?

I made up this recipeMy friend Tanner was the first to 'like' this recipe on my facebook so I named it after him. To make it super fast use Trader Joe's cubed butternut squash and pancetta. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet.
The ingredients are added this order: Butternut Squash + Spices , Pancetta, Almonds, Spinach. When you see the squash is just about cooked then add the meat. Add the almonds and spinach at very end and just barely cook them.

I made these pizza backgroundsFeel free to use these pizza backgrounds as you see fit.
Keep in mind that the pizza photos were grabbed at random from the interwebs, so don't use this in anything commercial.

This is a screen shot of my illustrator document.
When I first started this logo I went straight into working with the typography. I had to create a 'new' logo but still reference the old logo, this was because the non-profit group has several metal plaques with their old logo already affixed the homes of their Heritage Award winners.
When branding it is easy to get caught up in the details of the design. For me designing a logo can be like a logic puzzle, sometimes it even feels like a very left brained task.
I found that things started to take shape after I visited some of the historic Victorian homes owned by the members of this group. The photograph is of the interior parlor of one of the homes, by working on top of the photo it is like I am immersed in the concept. This photo is very evocative of the mood I wanted to emulate.

Logo ProcessI made this logo for a Board Game meet up group. They ended up changing their name from Orange County to Southern California, which was a bummer because the original design is suppose to be an O and a C.
I've been really interested in the recent 'ombre' and 'delft' trends.

The Final LogoThe idea was to create a logo that looked municipal, sort of like a public works project logo. I used fun game components to keep it from looking too serious and stuffy.
|Logo on Black|
|Here's their Meet Up page I created for them.|
