You're Invited!

Every Change is Release

Aw, bugger. I'm so close to finishing the logo and sending out a worldwide message that we exist...but I've got to finish all my work first. Then desert. 
Later that night...

aha! Got it! The logo is up on the site and I think it looks all right. There was so much I wanted to put into it---so many symbols and suggestions of landmarks...I guess we'll cover those areas later sometime. I wanted a logo that said: this is about Utah and this is about Drawing. Think it does the trick?

Everything We Have Here in Utah

The last few days I've been working on the logo (still not quite there...) and solidifying what the group is all about. It's important for me to get the message out that we are about Utah and we are about making pictures. 

I've been able to take a few little walks through the snow and I'm just overwhelmed with everything we have here in Utah. Everything I've grown up with and have wanted to escape until recently... the landscapes! The lives of the seasons! The music! The Mormon culture! The locally owned and operated grocery stores and restaurants! What a great place to be. Forget New York---THIS is the place.

P.S. This is the first image that came up when I googled "Utah":

It's our very own Delicate Arch as seen on license plates through the driving world (it's from a website dedicated to demolition derbies).
