Public Declaration: Real Busy
Posted at 05:31 PM


When I say I’m busy, I telling you, I am busy. No lies. No stretched truths.

Here’s what I’ve been up to the last month:

01. Snowboard Magazine / January / 140 pages, 72 edit.
02. Coal Headwear catalog / 2009 Collection / 64 pages
03. Coal Considered catalog / 2009 Collection / 32 pages
04. Union Binding Company catalog / 2009-2010 / 56 pages
05. Snowboard Magazine / Women’s Issue / 100 pages, 64 edit
06. Top Secret Web Site Navigation Design
07. Snowboard Magazine / February Issue / 156 pages, 80 edit

Output, people, output. Phew.

And I’m proud of each and every page.

I can’t wait to get all of it back from the printers. Stuff international and stuff domestic. Wow. Pins and needles, and I love it. I am a graphic designer and I make magazines, catalog, logos, web sites and feel like the luckiest motherfucker in the world to do what I get to do. What a privilege, really.

It’s been the busiest five weeks of my life, and I need to thank people like Brad, Jeff, Larry, Basher, Verity, Lucky, Nate, Exile, Steve, Tawnya, Martino, George, Micah, Lovejoy, Goo, Nakamoto, little Gary and a gal by the name of Leigh for the utmost patience and skill in handling me, and all of this.

Thank you, so much.

The Holidays are close. Pretty excited about that.

PRESIDENTIAL WRESTLING: A big-ass headlock of a poster brought to you by the bad people of Knoxville’s Yee Haw Industries. (Sent in by Scott Leverenz, “…a guy who works with Dale.” Indeed. Thanks, man. You are golden.)

THIS ONE STILL BRINGS A SMILE TO OUR FACE: nOvember 4th, 2008! And on a Field Notes brand 18-monther, to boot. Too much to take.

FROM ORVILLEE: “Wrenchman needs but one appendage.” The kind of stuff we are sent that absolutely hits the spot. Thanks so much. Perfect.

DANGEROUS TERRITORY: Ryno, that Minneapolis bastard, comes in hot with a link that could really wreck a man’s morning, or, lunch hour, or whatever. Weird name, too. Great shit. Here you go: Bibliodyssey.

I didn’t know you edited snowboard magazine. Sounds like you’re a heck of a lot busier than most people right now.
