Train travel is one of my all time favorite ways to get from point A. to point B. ( thanks, middle school algebra). One of the best parts of the trip is deciding what types of edibles to bring along to nibble upon while en-route. This particular journey to Chicago called for pumpkin seeds, smoked kielbasa ( I love stinking up the train car with the smell of Eastern European smoked meats), hard boiled eggs (laid fresh from a very talented South City St. Louis chicken), Afghani flatbread, a hunk of pepperjack cheese, butter and mustard. Alllllllllll abord!

In keeping with the “locally grown” theme the event also features local beer samplings from Schlafly Brewery and silent auction items from area businesses.
This is what breakfast looks like in South City, STL. Thanks to my proximity to Tower Grove Farmer’s Market, this mornings breakfast was made up of farm fresh eggs, ridiculously crisp spiced dill pickles and old world style bagels from Black Bear Bakery… all enjoyed from my breezy back porch.
Logo created for Capitol City Cinema, an independent, community funded cinema in Jefferson City, MO. The community funded project will bring art house style films to central Missouri, paired alongside mouthwatering offerings from Capitol City Cork.
The logo features a graphic portrayal of Jefferson City’s Capitol dome ( construction was completed in 1917- USA Today touted MO’s Capitol building as the most beautiful in all 50 states! ). The focal point of the logo features a film reel, the monochromatic scheme is a nod to the glamour of classic film, whose medium was really beginning to take a silent hold during the construction of the city’s Capitol.

Candy bar wrapper designed for the Arts and Education Council of St. Louis. The candy bars (Hershey’s chocolate bars in disguise) served as a delicious way to say “thank you” to donors and workplace giving campaign coordinators.
