Small Still Life Drawings

When I was in college, I had to take two drawing courses. I had always been OK at drawing — with dedicated practice, I got to be pretty good. Maybe even better than OK! In 2004, I had to draw 50+ small, 2-inch by 2-inch still life drawings. Some took a few minutes, others took

All Kids Theater Non-Profit Branding

Early on in my career, the dominant branding technique for the nonprofit sector was focused solely on communication — tell your friends, call your mom, get the word out.

B.I. (Before Instagram)

Do you remember the good old days before Instagram when you had to take a photo of your dinner, then get the film developed, then go round all your friends houses to show them a picture of your dinner? No? Me neither. Within less than a minute, your photo is telegraphed to the world. With
