AIGA Design For Good [Video]

I was fortunate to talk art, design, and how it can and should be used for good with AIGA West Michigan recently. Many thanks to those involved for the thought of including myself and the [FHH] organization. Go forth and do more good.

#GoodBoyScout Turns 1

Known to many as #GoodBoyScout, this mutt just celebrated his 1st birthday on Sunday, November 24th. What better way to celebrate than with a party hat? (Although, I'm sure he would beg to differ)...

WANTED: Boot Apprentice

If you or know anyone that may be interested, this elderly gentlemen has been a master boot maker for decades and is looking for an apprentice to pass it all down to. If you love fine craftsmanship, working with your hands, and building great American-made product, then this shop in Oregon could be yours with just the right work ethic. It's sad to see this as a dying craft, so I'm hoping there's someone out there able and willing to continue on this tradition. Witness the passion for yourself:
