Makers hate getting typecast. Forgive the comparison, but one has to think that Leonardo da Vinci or Ben Franklin also disliked getting put solely into the artist, engineer, or designer box.
We don't much like name-dropping brands either, but this one was for a major player in modern healthcare.
No Android app for Philly bike share? No problem. 1362 ecstatically happy and safe users.
Drawing boats was a natural extension of messing about and racing them as kids.

Inspiration... (semi) daily.
Injecting some air, passion, and beauty here in the blog. My instinct has always been that I prefer sites with original content to aggregations of other people's work. However the internet is also like a global atelier**, and sometimes it's good to walk out into the hallway of the building and listen or peek at the door of another creative.
** atelier: meaning studio. Buy me a coffee and I'll bore you with stories of the old Blauhaus art building at Penn Design. Blauhaus was a pun on Bauhaus, the building was a blue somewhere between royal and navy. I used to do things like drive my motorcycle in the front door and park in the main gallery :).
