Many thousands of years ago, someone painted the image on the left. I made the image on the right a few minutes ago. The cave painting is obviously art, but it probably was a message as well. It may have had something to do with a religious ceremony, maybe a record of a successful hunt, possibly some prehistoric punk’s graffiti, or it could be directions to an important place. The image on the right represents directions to an important place.

I had a nice pork BBQ sandwich yesterday for lunch. Upon returning to the studio, I enjoyed a  creative and productive afternoon. Coincidence? I think not!

Bob Gibson, aka the Carvin Artist, creates beautiful decoys from the cedar on his Washington County, Kentucky farm. When KSD was tasked to develop a website to showcase Bob’s work a few years ago, one of the first challenges was how to photograph his carvings.

In the land of white trucks, our almost 80 year old building is getting some minor repairs. It sounds like there are elephants on the roof right now.

The chance of having twins in the US is a fraction over 3%, or basically 33 to 1. Pretty slim odds. Better than winning the lottery, but not as likely as winning at roulette.

This is one of the myriad of things that makes working at KSD so interesting. Out of six employees, half of them have twins… or in the case of our newest employee, expecting twins. (I’m not sure that “expecting” is the right word, she’s pretty darn sure about it.)
