Team Pearl

Who are you cheering for to win Ru Paul Season 7? I'm all about Pearl, because I'm a flighty, nonchalant, emotional weirdo, too. FLA ZAY DA, queen bees!

Plan Bee: A3 for 5.20.15

It's election (primary) night in the newsroom, and for the first time in about 8 years, I'm designing wire pages instead of election pages and the front page. 
Enjoyable A3 centerpiece:
President Barack Obama has announced a plan to increase the dwindling population of honey bees and monarch butterflies by making federal land more suitable to the unsung workers that support American agriculture. Hooray for that.

A1 for 5.19.15

Don't forget to vote in the primary today if you are party-affiliated.
Amtrak from Philly to NYC is back after the tragic derailment.
Tom Wolf being Tom Wolf. Wants to tax your lotto winnings.
You won't be able to see where your meat is coming from. Better go vegan!
Ruffles in the skybox because a little ruffle goes a long way for femininity.

The Geoffreys: Year IV

My Pittsburgh Marathon team, The Geoffreys, had an exceptional showing this year, given we were down to a three-person team, due to pregnancy and injury. Marty Flahery, Adam Fleming and myself finished the 26.2 in 4 hours and 12 minutes, fueled by 412 sunshine, Alfonso Ribeiro (and his "Dancing With the Stars partner Witney Carson) dancing on our hearts and the prospect of beer and sweet potatoes afterward.
I screenprinted the T-shirts mostly by myself at Artist Image Resource on the North Side, with a little help from a fine gentleman named Cameron. Much appreciation.
Our team name is the brainchild of Adam and based on Geoffrey Butler from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," who once won a Gold Medal in an Olympic marathon because he hailed a cab. He showed the Banks family a documentary about it, aptly titled "The Shame of a Nation."
The Geoffreys endure each other, each year, no pain, no gain, never shame. I love my team.

Pirates Opening Day 2015

My A1 for 4.14.15. Grand opening because it was like a summer day and the first pitch was a home run by the Pirates' Josh Harrison. Way to start the season for all the 412 baseball fans.

carvings at midnight

I did my first wood carving since art studio days with the help of Leila. She is turning this into a necklace.
