Happy 4th of July

I had a good 4 day weekend and watched fireworks with the family. My son Ryker loved his first fireworks!

Tree of Children

My wife is a preschool teacher and wanted a way to remember all the kids every year. I drew this tree and she had all her kids put their thumbprints as leaves in the tree. She plans to use a different shade of green with every new class.

Saturday Night in Des Moines

Saturday Night in Des Moines

Went to my friend's joint birthday party after the Des Moines Art Festival and watched the fireworks. The resulting smoke clouds made the 801 Grand building look pretty sweet.

Creative Campaign

Starting tomorrow I will be moving desks. I got promoted from Digital Media Designer to Creative Campaign Artist. I will still be doing digital ads but at a greater scale with more creativity.

I will miss my desk buddy Derek. We have been good friends since high school and we have been working together for about 3 years and we finally got to sit next to each other when Gannett moved from the old Des Moines Register building to Capitol Square a year ago. We are still working on our book on weekends though.

I am excited to start my new position. I feel I will have some strong portfolio pieces coming soon!
