Graphic Design: Hard Work

This was a design-with-type exercise that ended up on a postcard to promote my studio. The sentiment expressed is one of my all-time favorites. It comes from a book on federal law enforcement job opportunities. Now, if you’re wondering why a graphic designer would read such a book, let’s just say that I’m a literary…

Event Photography: St. Patrick’s Parade

Yesterday was cold, windy, and rainy. Despite the not-so-perfect weather, the annual St. Patrick’s Parade wound its way through Downtown Tucson. The Seven Pipers Society helped lead the way… Since this was a Tucson parade, it had to include some industrial-strength weirdness. The Mashed Potato Queens were more than happy to oblige… This puppy found…

Graphic Design: No Bike Bans

Since I get around by bicycle, I have more than a passing interest in where bikes can and cannot go. Hence, I am quite opposed to bike bans, especially in these days of high gas prices, global climate change, and widespread obesity.

Construction Photography: Makeover’s Done!

Last month, I wrote about a Watershed Management Group project that’s transforming a steep slope on a private property west of Downtown Tucson. I’m pleased to report that this project is now done. A small, but mighty band of WMG volunteers applied the finishing touches this past Sunday. Tip: I am available for construction photography…

Construction Photography: Creating a Greenlot

This past Saturday, the Watershed Management Group ran a workshop to install earthworks on an undeveloped urban lot in central Tucson. Participants working with an excavator (shown above) to create large broad basins, raised pathways, and swales. The goal is to transform this lot into a green space where wildlife can thrive and people can…

Website Design: Law Firm Marketing

March 2019 update: This website is no longer online. Got a call from Dee Schiavelli earlier this week. Dee is a consultant who helps lawyers, accountants and other professional providers develop effective marketing strategies for their practices. I helped Dee build her website last year, and she needed some training in how to update it….

Construction Photography: Hillside Makeover

Spring is in the air, and that means that Tucson’s Watershed Management Group volunteers are back in action. Here, two shovel-wielding volunteers are helping a local family solve a steep problem… Seems that the west side of their property has a steep slope that does a convincing imitation of a waterfall when there’s a heavy…

Event Photography: Fords on Fourth

Yesterday morning, the Mustangs, Thunderbirds, Fairlanes, and T-birds lined up on Tucson’s Fourth Avenue. The occasion was Fords on Fourth, an all-Ford car show… Fords on Fourth offered a veritable banquet of treats for those who like to get under the hood… Or you could see the festivities reflected on this hood… If there’s one…

Website Design: Saluting Feminist Lawyers

September 2015 update: This website is no longer online. When I was a first-grader I had a fabulous teacher. I owe my love of reading to that lady, because she taught me how. Toward the end of the school year, she made an announcement that disappointed the whole class. She said that she wasn’t coming…

Bike-tography 105: Signs Along the Way

Was pedaling over to a Saturday afternoon class, and what should I encounter but the massive Interstate 10 widening project. This construction project is causing all sorts of headaches for the motoring public, and it’s supposed to continue until 2010. I-10’s Downtown Tucson worksite was chock-full of barricades, mud, heavy equipment, and other obstacles that…
