Seems like a lifetime ago that I started doing art and design professionally at DesignSight in Seattle, Washington. The year was 1997 but I had already wet my whistle with several freelance projects by then. Then one day, I walked into an interview with my Ross dress shirt and crooked tie. A couple gentlemen took a chance on me and I will be eternally grateful to both Brent Cook and Chris Settle. They were great at allowing me to screw up and learn from and through their business as a young pup. Now I own my own business and wish I had paid more attention. At any rate. Here’s to you Chris and Brent—thank you!
