Hap­py Labor Day Weekend.

Ham­mer & Nail, #49 in the Amper­Art series, hon­ors all of us who labor for a liv­ing. This edi­tion, Ham­mer & Nail, pays spe­cial trib­ute to those jour­ney­men who build hous­es to give us shel­ter & offices to help us work — like my broth­er Rob and my friend Mike. Rob­bie, I love you like a friend and Mike, I love you like a brother.

chazsezLOGO-85x64I hope you enjoy your work as much as I do mine. My tool­bag con­tains sev­er­al graph­ics pro­grams, a mon­i­tor & scan­ner, some left­over designers markers from the pre-​digital era, an Xac­to knife which I still use on occa­sion & of course my box of 120 Cray­ola crayons which is always right in front of me. (My favorite Cray­ola col­or is blue-green.)

Some­times I could use a ham­mer, though, when the com­put­er crash­es. On the oth­er hand, it feels good when I nail a logo on the first try.
