Global Talent Search

This could be a great opportunity for aspiring artists. Lilla Rogers is conducting a global talent search. It's not just a portfolio review, but a competition to show your talent and how well you work based on the direction given in an assignment. There are a great panel of judges from Anthropologie to Chronicle. The winner will be represented by Lilla Rogers Studio for 2 years internationally. Here is the link to get the full story. You can't win if you don't play :-) If nothing else, it will be a great learning experience.

Good luck,

What I did on my spring break

While on spring break with my family in Cape San Blas Florida, we took a little side trip to the Panama City Publishing Museum in historic St. Andrews, Florida. This small museum was once a thriving print shop that printed the area newspapers. We had a great time learning about the history of the town and the original owners of the business. They had some great presses and a beast of a linotype. To learn more stop by this web site.

Here are a few photos I snapped during our tour.
