While in Kauai, I got a chance to dapple with my watercoloring.  The numerous chickens on that island provided ample subject matter.

The evidence is circumstantial.
A case of wrong place, wrong time.
Maizy wouldn't do such substantial
donut scavenging crimes. 

A new image from the Office Dogs paintings I've been working on. Thought all the dog owners out there might enjoy this. #officeDogs #watercolorPaintings #dogpainting #voodooDonuts #PortlandOregon #PortlandDogs

Hilarious and on the money.
As you probably know, LinkedIn is the dreariest, most humorless repository of business commentary mankind has ever produced. It is a venue for people without the slightest talent for business writing to shoot their mouths off...

Made a fun little holiday greeting animation for a client. Initially it was going to be just an animated gif in an email, but then we thought, "Hey why not show these drawing properly and make a video!" I love having clients who force me to step up my game. (and also give me assignments which use my illustration/video talents.)

At first it was just going to be an Instagram video, then we evolved it.

Back when I was in college a few centuries ago, our illustration professor introduced us to Anita Kunz. To this day her work still inspires me. Here's and article to inspire you.

#anitakunz   #illustrator   #editorialIllustration  
Anita Kunz has been working as an editorial illustrator for more years than many of our younger Profiles readers have been alive (she got an early start!). But her work remains as energetic and forward-looking as ever—if not more so—as she continues to expand and develop both her art and her ...

I've finally entered the world of ebooks and published a small book about the various oddballs and wonderfully weird people of Portland , Oregon.
I'm surprised that not many artists publish monographs and chapbooks on Amazon. It's pretty easy if you know HTML and CSS.

Anyhow, if you'd want, check out the ebook and leave a review. Thanks!

This perfectly illustrates the need for great creative strategy and properly worded concepts. Do it wrong, you waste time, money and risk the ruination of a brand.
As Mark Twain said, "The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning."
Too bad so little thought is put into writing campaigns these days.

The treatment was fine, but the cost is a complete ripoff. They triple and double bill for services that would be easily affordable at clinics like Zoomcare. Steer clear of this facility and Providence Medical Group in general. Total for profit price gouging with little regard to patient affordability. I'll give you a short example of how badly they jack up prices: I had to get stitches at the ER for a cut. They charged me $284 for tetnus shot. The same kind of shot that costs them $15 (in bulk) and which I could have received at Walgreens for $30. Is it any wonder that the US healthcare system is so bad with prices abuses like this happening?

Dave helped me sell my family home in BIg Flats while I was living here in Oregon. The man is exemplary and very trust worthy. This sale posed some tricky problems, but Dave's knowledge about the matter resolved them smoothly and with a minimum of cost. Definitely one of the best lawyers to in the area. You'd be wise to use his services.
