Retro Personal Work
(click to see larger)

While I was home I put some old photos on my computer, some of them being of my aunts and uncles as teenagers. This is my Uncle Rick and Aunt Sherry, siblings of my mom. I don’t know the year this was taken, but come on… it HAS to be in the 1970s. Just look at their hair.

I decided to tie in the lyrics to a hit song from the 70’s, Stairway to Heaven. I hardly ever do personal work that isn’t for a client but I think I need to start because this was fun!

I aimed to make this have multiple meanings (especially if you didn’t know they were siblings) – what story do you read from it?

Michael and I at CreativeImprov.com just recently completed a project for PublishtheGecko.com and GeckoMath.com. This project was inspired by Jamie Varon and her popular website TwitterShouldHireMe.com Jamie gained publicity from CNN, Fortune Magazine and many others for her straightforward approach to finding a job. I first found out about her by Dr. Grow, an education professor at Truman State and our client for this project. I’m now friends with Jamie on Facebook and Twitter and she thought it was cool that she inspired this project. She now runs her own design business, Shatterboxx Media and is living in Italy (LUCKY!).

Three years ago I was introduced to Gecko Math (which is a Korean math curriculum that is being translated into English). At that time, I illustrated the gecko and designed the logo and original website. I worked with a great programmer, Ryan Herriman to complete geckomath.com.

Recently, Creative Improv was approached to extend their brand and directly market gecKo mathematics to publishers. The end result was PublishtheGecko.com, seen below.

totally NOT disconnected from society... I love flying now.

I realized that this flight had wi-fi available… and so I decided to check it out. I got an email from Goldie about some updates to a website we needed to do. So… from the plane, some where 34,000 above southern Missouri, I udpated the website. WOW.

A shot I took this morning. The black on top and bottom is from a grave that I was 'shooting through'. It had a gap to see through.
