February 13 Creative Logo


A bit of news, a bit of inspiration, a bit of new work... a bit random, a bit blogish. “bits” is where it all hangs out.

f13 goes drupal!


Thanks to the fabulous Colin Duwe, we've recently completed some major improvements to our website. Colin has moved us to a Drupal-powered site, which means that updating our content (to share news and new work) should be a much easier and faster process in the future. We took the opportunity to redesign the site a bit as well, and we'd love to know what you think. Please leave a comment!

cookie monster


I attended my first ever cookie exchange over the holidays, hosted by my dear pal Cindy (event planner extraordinaire... she pulls off intimate parties for friends and grand fetes for captains of industry with equal style and grace). My contribution was a souped-up oatmeal chocolate chip number that I've been perfecting in recent months. It just gets better and better and I think it's time to share the recipe!

The last batch called out to be immortalized in illustration...

You can find the recipe here.

Happy baking!

happy mother's day!


This one goes out to you, E.T., and all the other hot mamas I know out there... especially those who will (like moi) probably be spending at least part of their day tomorrow getting ready for NSS and Surtex. See you in New York!
