I’ve always been a fan of quirky, indie, or underdog  films. My top ten movie lists includes several Wes Andersen films, Life Aquatic being at the top. I think what draws me to these types of movies is the strong emphasis on character driven stories. While my brother Drew was at BYU studying animation, he introduced us to the short film, Peluca, the origin of Napoleon Dynamite. So when they made a feature length film of our favorite Preston, ID resident, we were overjoyed. Now THERE’S a movie full of... Read The Rest →

A busy start to the year.

It is amazing how having a baby can suddenly suck up any spare time you had, right?

Merry Christmas 2012!

Boy, do I have a lot to catch up on, the creative juices have been flowing freely.  But for now, I wanted to make sure to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! As I became more serious about my graphic design efforts, the pressure to create a good Christmas Card became much stronger.  Not because I felt like I had to, but because I knew of the potential, and I certainly didn’t want to let the opportunity go to waste.  It is also a fun way to gauge how much my...
