RX bar design

My neighbor Joe introduced me to these RxBars a while back and because of their short list of ingredients, they are one of the few packaged foods that don’t freak me out.

This is what I’d call a very good brand and packaging refresh—totally jiving with the basic ingredients and no-nonsense nature of the product.

My only niggle would be that it’s a bit hard to figure out the flavor buried at the bottom, but other than that? Super solid. (And pretty darn tasty wholesome!)

Doodling in Illustrator

It took a while, but I’m finally quite comfortable using Adobe Illustrator. In this word of high resolution devices, it’s nice to have a program that isn’t locked into pixels.

One favorite feature that cropped up over the past few years is Artboards, where you can create multi-page documents. Even better? I doodle outside of these canvases, in the digital margins so to speak, keeping iterations and ideas not used. Sometimes I even keep it tidy.

El Burrito Loco

My mom once told me trees like this were called “white ghosts,” but I can’t verify on the web. This might be an Appalachian colloquialism that hasn’t made the leap to the digital realm. Either way, I these trees always catch my eye on the way up to Oxford.

My funny endodontist

Monday, February 1, 2016


I laughed out loud while filling out registration forms at the endodontist’s office.

“Question 7?” asked the woman behind the front desk.

“Yup!” I replied, happy that such a bummer of a premise could be lightened.

Humor always helps.

Taxidermy fox reflection

Spent the last day of January being very happy doing very little. In this case, sitting on the couch and playing videogames and making five alarm chili.

Sidenote: The Uncharted Collection for PS4 is a bargain. Three complete, exquisitely produced action games for less than 30 bucks.

Oh, the taxidermy animals up there are from January 26th. The photo got lost in the editing bin but was more interesting than the textured brick wall from the day. There was also Edie giving me stinkeye, but catblog.

The brick texture might come in handy for design comps one day though.

Pokémon tournament

Saturday, January 30, 2016


“What’s your favorite card?” I asked.

The answer was Gengar.

Then the special decks were distributed, these being the big motivating reason to drive an hour and join a Pokémon tournament.
