ID10T podcast cover

On the last day of January, the new brand of Chris Hardwick was about to re-launch. We’d locked down the logo, but the podcast was set to debut and we needed a cover. Hardwick suggested an airplane safety card and I ran with it. What you see here is the initial drawing and final art. […]

Corny

Chili and cheese

Jim’s easy to entertain. He’s already seen most Cincinnati sights in previous visits. He is now content visiting every possible chili parlor. Today’s lunch: Camp Washington Chili.
