For those of you not in the know, Matthew and I worked on a cool project for our alma mater last fall. We designed a poster that will be handed out to freshmen that is a bucket list of sorts – a checklist of a bunch of things that alumni have said students should see or do before graduating. It’s called “Ephropology 101: The Williams Bucket List” and can be bought here. Ok. Now that I’m done shilling, I can get to the point.
We worked with Ashley on this project. Ashley has her hands in all kinds of pies, from working with the alumni office at Williams to doing her own design projects to running a photography boot camp (ooh, sign me up!) to repurposing vintage (read: cast-off) clothes from her mother’s attic . The woman is an inferno of awesomeness (she has two kids, two dogs, and chickens, too). She also blogs about it all, and in a much more timely fashion than we do (I have been meaning to write this post since January 1! Holy crap that’s a whole month ago already!! She also beat us to the posting punch about our visit to Williamstown by two days. Embarrassing – ). Anyway – at the changeover of the new year, she wanted to change up her header and asked me if I could tackle it. Her only requirements were that it showed her two dogs, some chickens and a cart wheel.
This is what I came up with (I confess, I love it):
One of her dogs, the noble Ursa, recently lost a leg to cancer, so Ashley asked that I show her in her tri-pawd state. I just hope I did the girl right.
