Our business is more than quick downloads and stock images. It's visual problem solving. It's turning something on its sides and upside down. It's getting people to think and, in my case, laugh. Not through inadvertent acts or copying from a Goggle search, but through creativity and hard work. Whether it's teaching, writing (read Tales from the Emerald City for a laugh), designing, or illustrating you get me—facets, faults and all. I love what I do and to me that's success.
