Top Secret

For the past week and a half we've been working on a top secret project for a licensee. We've been looking at designs we've done in the past and reworking them into new "groups of four" layouts. It's fun to take a design you really like and break it down into coordinates. Lots of discoveries!

Furry Passenger

Nice morning at Greenlake. Sun... sprinkling mist... sun again. A guy on rollerblades passes by. Zoom. Notice a curious canine head peeking from the guy's camoflauge backpack. Yorkie, maybe? Bark! Very cute. Couldn't reach for the phone quickly enough, so no pic. But, here are some pretty flowers from our Fårö collection.

Fun In The Dragon Kingdom

Continuing the "walk" theme started below, this artwork was inspired by a walk last autumn through a magical Himalayan valley. To see tons of our photographs of Bhutan, go here

Fun In San Francisco

Had a great time in San Francisco last week! One day we took a long (10+ hours) walk. Started at Union Square, walked through Chinatown to Lombard, snaked through Lafayette Park, Japantown, Alamo Square. Explored Haight, walked all through Golden Gate Park to the ocean. Stopped for some crab cakes at the Cliff House, and then wandered through Lands End, Seacliff, and along the coast, under the Golden Gate Bridge. Through the Marina to meet Matt and Jim for dinner at Ghirardelli Square. Highly recommended! This new artwork was inspired by that walk.

You Know It's Going To Be A Good Day

...when a flock of lively birds fly from the far corners of the world to have a little avian conference in your backyard!

Let's Get Lost

Chet Baker's tasty trumpet and smooth vocals inspired some new artwork this afternoon. For three decades Chet turned every song into a little slice of perfection. Favorite cuts-- "Dancing On The Ceiling," "The Night We Called It A Day," "Green Dolphin Street," "Forgetful," and, of course "Let's Get Lost."
