Heading Up WP.com: 'Deck Splash'

Deck Spash” heads up wp.com this month. It is a shot of two bright red kayaks with morning dew still on them.

This is one of many shots - some of which will make their way to
ARTvision - from my Chautauqua series.

Also, please enjoy the new, more streamlined design for wp.com. Bigger header capture, easier nav and many more cool things to come. Happy

Stone Four Media Receives Award From National Biz Association

This was a nice honor today... Stone Four Media, my little fledgling company, has received the 2008 Best of Atlanta Award from the USLBA in the Graphic Design & Art category.

How cool is that? The award comes from the
U.S. Local Business Association, based in Washington, D.C., a group that "serves as an advocate for small and medium size businesses and business entrepreneurs across America."

I've done quite a bit of graphic design - from
Peach program ads and business and marketing cards to holiday postcards - but never thought anyone was paying attention (except for the recipients, of course).

The group finds its award recipients by using "information gathered internally in conjunction with third-party data as part of its selection process," according to Ashley Carter, Selection Committee Chair. The rest of their criteria, she added, is private due to non-disclosure agreements.

In honor of the award, here's a
preview of the forthcoming program ad (pictured above) for the 2008 Peach International Tennis Championships.

So... ongoing thanks to all of you, who always show such enthusiastic support.
