Aside from all this web riff raff, we actually work on projects. Lots of them. In fact, we’re “really busy,” pretty much all the damn time. And up above is a logo we just completed for the good people of Cobra Dogs. Right there in the flesh. Very, very proud of this one, and, our stubby, hot-dogged fingers are crossed for Corey and his venture for the upcoming summer season. Give ‘em hell, man!

We hate pineapple, but definitely not Darin Bendall or Darin Bendall’s mini pineapples. Pretty cool.

Don’t even think of mentioning, “Pineapple on pizza.” around me. No way. Blasphemy. And for the record, fuck Hawaii. There you go.

MANDATORY ATTENDANCE: Seattle’s own Kellie Talbot is showing her amazing paintings at Office on Alberta, tomorrow night. You need to see there. Take our word for it. Hell of a gal.

I mean, c’mon, you better be there: “Inspired by her trip to the Las Vegas sign “graveyard”, Talbot has infused her love of typography, signage and Americana in these carefully crafted, moderately priced paintings. This series captures the raw and refined beauty of environmental design from a bygone era.”

We were lucky enough to jump in on her visit to the Sign Graveyard a couple years back. One of the best afternoons of my life. Really. Never gonna forget that one, and, the opportunity to go. Thanks again, lady!

Nice Job Draplin! I especially like how the tail turns into a “dog”. The similarity in style to their original logo (G.I. Joe - COBRA emblem) is also a plus.
