I had the opportunity to work with Caitlyn Wolfe and bring her brand to life. She wanted her logo to reflect her style of music and personality. After many changes, versions, and updates we finally nailed it. She will be using this for her upcoming album art and merchandise.
Would you believe I spent time trying to come up with a catchy headline and that's what I settled with? Meh, it's Friday at 5:15pm. After much prep and updates, changes, material, and ink. We finally finished my latest t-shirt design. I wanted to create a tourist shirt that lets people know what Dubuque's all about. Da-booooze Iowa.. get it.. ok, I'm done.. I'm stupid.. no more workie.

Being a full-time designer and father is hard work. People just don't understand the time and effort it takes to raise two rambunctious juveniles. Keeping them fed, warm, preventing them from shitting on your keyboard. It's a thankless job really. Until you have children you'll never understand the mental and physical toll it takes on you. It's like "DAD" we want crickets, "DAD" we want heat and UV lights so we don't die.
At the end of the day, after putting in 12 hours of work, tucking them into bed and reading them their favorite bed time stories is really what its all about. While they are too young to speak the dead look in their eyes tells me they love and appreciate me.

Sometimes you need that extra pick-me-up at the beginning of the week when youre bombarded by work. A little motivational quote, a pat on the back for job well done, maybe a $5 gift card to a coffee joint. I get a thoughtful note hidden in my note pad of things to do this week. One being not to suck. Thanks kids.
