Kids Are Smarter Than You Think

Our studio gives tours to students interested in Art and Design throughout the school year.  This was an email I sent out to give a heads up to the crew to cover their unmentionables and make sure and smile.  Kids are smarter than you think and can spot a fake smile from a mile away.  Can you tell which smile is genuine? Hint: It is in eyes.

Self Portrait Series - Body Builder

Sometimes in life you make a mistake.  This was an image I sent with an email to apologize for being a massive tool.  I was teaching a lesson in how to import work paths from photoshop into Indesign to use for text wrap and it wasn't working properly.  I couldn't figure out what the problem was.  After class I realized I needed to place the text layer on top of the image.  Duh!  I hate to think I wasted somebody valuable time.

Studio Announcement - Free Furniture

You have never seen everybody drop what they were doing so fast.  The same thing happens anytime there is free food.  I find if you include the word "pizza" people start getting injured from the stampede.

United Way Poster - Rejected Idea 02

A skew on the traditional thermometer to measure the progress of a fund raising campaign.  Now that I think about it, this one may make some people not want to donate.

Evil Twin

We just switched over to Entourage as our email client in the studio, and as we were trying to set up group contacts there were a few mistyped addresses that made it into everybody's auto complete address function.   This was in an email to help people correct the problem.

Are you wondering why Jonathan never comes to any of your meetings?  Does he hate you? Maybe...Or maybe it could be that you are sending your invitations to his evil twin brother.
You can tell the evil one by the telltale goatee (Star Trek: Mirror, Mirror)

Separated at Birth: Our Parking Lot and a Freakin Sweet Smash Up Derby

When winter comes in Burlington we lose half of our parking lot to huge piles of snow.  The entertainment value of watching my co-workers try and solve the parking issue is priceless.  

Photoshop Help

This request comes up all the time.  "I have a photo that I want to put on my home page, but I am holding a Mike Hard Lemonade, I don't know what people will think, can you use your Photoshop skills to edit it out?"
You bet I can.  Here are the results.
