Working It Out

Don't know if my subconscious is telling me it's time to get back into the gym, but this little guy showed up in my sketchbook today. Since he was breaking a sweat and all, I figured the least I could do was let him say "hello" (and show his guns) on the blog.

Amazing? Just a Tad...

So, it turns out, the only thing cooler than getting to meet one of your favorite, rock star illustrator/designers is finding out that they're super-down-to-Earth, generous, and humble.

That was my experience this weekend meeting Tad Carpenter. What a great guy! It was very inspiring to hang out with someone so passionate about his/our industry and about life as a creative-type. ('We get to do this!')
Saturday morning, Tad (and AAF Acadiana) offered a branding & illustration workshop. It ended up being a room filled with a bunch of my favorite Lafayette doodlers & designers, just doing what we all love to do. 

Tad had us pull a random animal and city out of a hat, and create a restaurant brand based on the two. I pulled 'Alligator' & 'Las Vegas' and was inspired to combine the just-under-the-surface, lurky behavior of a gator and the casino culture of the strip into a Bar & Grill called 'The Lucky Lurker."

Thanks, Tad, for bringing your creative spark to Cajun Country!
