Dream. Do. Disrupt.

Last Friday, I was contacted by Delphi to aid them in creating something illustrative and personal to their new Chief Technology Officer, Glen De Vos. The deadline was a short one, but working with Matt Benyo, we were able to pull this off because team work makes the dream work! The idea was to come up with an image that tells Glen's story. Glen has just filled the big shoes of Jeff Owens, the recently retired CTO, and this blog is a way for Glen to share his experiences, life, and the future of Delphi. I did the drawing and Matt did the digital portion. We finished it up Tuesday and sent it over and our two contacts loved it. It's always the most exciting thing to work with people that make your job fun and both Aimee and Pam do that for me every. single. time. Grateful doesn't even begin to describe it.

The Rabbit Hole.

Today, my little sister, Shelby, and I decided to exchange birthday gifts. Her birthday is March 22nd and mine is April 25th, but she is really terrible at holding onto gifts. She got me some great ones. She got me Space Jam on DVD, some magic wish dust, an amazing customized Psyduck watercolor by my friend, Crystal, a nice card with some Lush cash, and a Limited Edition Satanic Coloring Book (that isn't as weird as you'd think). I was cracking up. Then, it was my turn. I made my sister a book full of inside jokes and pictures. She loved it. I wrote her a nice note. She cried. I got her some cool gifts, too. I also colored this White Rabbit because Shelby loves Alice in Wonderland. It was how we kicked the gift giving off. I hit a home run with this gift and I knew I would. It's all about the personal, homemade touches when it comes to me. I would pick a card with a nice handwritten note in it over a "thing" any day. Those are the important things; words. I like to extend that courtesy to others when I think about how I can impact their day. She felt great about everything and I did too. Mission accomplished. Happy early birthday, Shelby. I love you a lot. LYLAS. You're my spicy boy.
