Long Live the Quadroforce!

Long Live The Quadroforce
K’chan, Doc Ock, Nick Nasty and TJ Wiggles.

Tonight was bittersweet as some of my best buddies from Virgin Mobile took me out to a farewell dinner of sorts at an awesome Portuguese restaurant up in Somerville. Originally, Octavio, Nick and I referred to ourselves as the “Design Triforce” – a design team that was not to be reckoned with. Then we took it to the whole next level when Kelvin was moved over to our area. We had become the QUADROFORCE!! A totally unstoppable team who could actually be stopped by ruthless higher-ups, a sluggish economy and downsizing.

But seriously, it was awesome to hang with the guys again tonight and the lovely Lynn (who serves as the April O’Neil role to our Ninja Turtles), who also took this picture for us. Thanks guys for the AMAZING dinner and the Christmas gift that meant so much to me and my family, you’ll never know. It was awesome working with you for these past two years and hopefully I’ll see you again soon.

The Quadroforce is dead! Long live the Quadroforce!

Cricket’s 5th Birthday Party!

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

This year, Cricket was adamant that she wanted a Bunny themed party. A rather odd request for December, but we couldn’t deny her, so bunnies it was. Her birthday isn’t until the 10th, but we couldn’t have the party any other time. She had such a hard time grasping that concept (and got a little upset at the idea of “pretending”), we finally just let her believe it was her real birthday after all. So the bunny party was on. Marylynn brainstormed 1001 ways to make it awesome, and she executed most of them. It wasn’t a grand affair, we just had her cousins and a couple close friends over and played games and ate cake, but it was a great time!

The night before, Marylynn made the cake, and detail cleaned everything. She’s a mad woman. I helped prep by painting a bunny on our patio door for “Pin the Tail on the Bunny”. I got an image of “Sonny the Bunny” from the John K blog to copy. I’m really proud of how it turned out.

As I’ve been working on my portfolio site, I decided to scan a bunch of silly drawings I’ve done over the past year or two of people. Often times, during long meetings I like to draw the people around me, especially the ones doing the speaking. So if you go to church with me or worked at VMU with me, then chances are I’ve drawn you. I’m interested in faces and the different shapes and features and how I can bring them out the best ways. I hope I don’t bum anybody out with my interpretations. So, without further ado here’s a bunch of my favorites.
