Thank you treats

int. Kitchen

Woman violently rips open a large bag of dog treats and pours some into a snack bag. She slips the snack bag in with her lunch.


Is that going to hold you over dear? Do you think those are for human consumption? I can give you another banana if you really need the second snack.


Very funny. I'm taking these with me so that I can package them.


Uh huh, right! You just tell me how you like them.

A few posts back, I mentioned a photo shoot that I did with Lu Jean and Mitzi Joe. At the close of a business transaction, I like to send a little thank you gift- something that my clients can hopefully use for their business.

These are small dog biscuits are individually wrapped gifts that Lu Jean can pass along to her own clients. The gift tags are puppy profiles printed with Lu Jean's business name across the front. The profile was inspired by none other than Mitzi.

Thanks again for your business, Lu Jean!

Have you ever received an item as a thank you from someone you've done business with? I'd love to know what, so please post some of your gifts in the comments section.

A WWII German re-enactor... and his car

int. office building

Employees are filing out of the building as one man
enters. He heads for the back to talk to the graphic artist.


You must be "Uncle Bob", welcome!

The two shake hands.


I'm not actually anybody's uncle... I don't know why they call me that.

Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Robert on a rather unique project- a vinyl graphic for the front of his mini coop. I created the outline of the German Coat of Arms Eagle and shield from an old grain sack that he had. It will be used to make a decal for the hood.

Robert, Bob for short, has worked on projects with National Geographic and the History Channel as a World War II German re-enactor. He's passionate about his work, about his German heritage, and his car.

In "Hitler's Final Days in the Bunker" he portrayed a guard whose job was to put up a good fight and die. He then played a SA guard in "Night of the Long Knives" whose job was to put up a good fight, get arrested and die. He jokes that his acting career just gets him killed. Here's a trailer that took first place at the Philadelphia film festival. Look for a close up of the first guard to be seen smoking by the fire (Bob assures me that it was an herbal cigarette.)
