I’m a winner.

I went to the second Art Directors Club of Tulsa meeting last night to hear designer Michael Osborne speak. What a great guy. His company, MOD, in San Francisco, not only includes clients like Target’s Archer Farms, but also tons of wine companies for which he and his designers get to design wonderful labels. He also started a non-profit which does pro bono design for other non-profits related to children’s health issues. 

If I could do that sort of work and still support myself, I would do it in a heartbeat. I told him that too when I met him. 

Now to the part where I’m a winner. They had a drawing and I won a $100 Apple Store gift card! Woo hoo! I’m now $100 closer to my new toy!

The NEW Macbook Pro. Yum.

    If you would like to know more about Michael Osborne, you should check out his blog:
    http://backtoschoolwithmichaelosborne.blogspot.com/

    He has a book coming out, Back to School, that shows his readers how he went back to school to gain his MFA while working keeping up with his two design firms and how Joey’s Corner came to be. Its an amazing book that meshes his studies with his life. Keep your eye out for it.
