I picked up a little freelance work this week for a restaurant in Bend called Barrio. You may recall that I have done some work for them in the past. This time, I was recreating their Luchador image and putting it to use on some banners and stickers. I think this guy will look pretty sweet rolling around town on a food cart, what do you think?

my week in pictures 11

tuesday 6/18 - sunday 6/23
(short week)

This week flew by. Me and Pat did a ton of running around throughout the week. We looked at some venues, took Pat's little brother around town, checked out some houses... it was definitely a productive one.

hey, i made that...

One of the perks of my job is having advertisements that I created running constantly in major Oregon publications... like this one in Portland Bride & Groom. Stumbling across photos is always a nice surprise, and this one was shot by Kimberly Kay, the photographer of the lovely wedding photos we featured.

my week in pictures 10

monday 6/10 - monday 6/17 
(long weekend)

Last work week went by super slow and then the weekend flew by. Megan came to town for a visit and I took Monday off to spend a bit more time with her. We definitely fit a lot of activities in to that short time frame... cyclepub for bossman's birthday, mcmenamins, running around town, an afternoon at the pool, exploring the Lava/Obsidian Flow, shopping, cupcakes... The list goes on. By the way, I took a ton of pictures at the Lava/Obsidian Flow that I will be posting at some point. Of course I still have to finish/start editing my pictures from Seattle and Vegas first, ugh. I am such a slacker lately.

I can't believe it is already June!! On the other hand, I can't believe that it is only June and I have already gone swimming twice! I love it over here. This was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time, I wish I could relive Saturday afternoon. :)

my week in pictures 8

monday 5/27 - sunday 6/2

It was great to have a short week, but I had a ton of catching up to do at work, so the weekdays pretty much went as follows: work, gym, home, dinner, sleep. Nothing particularly exciting to report aside from a chamber event on Friday. Over the weekend we did our fair share of relaxing and eventually made it in to Bend and met up with a few different groups of people. Sunday night we decided to grab some sushi and were pleasantly surprised that we hit happy hour at the best place in town, score! The highlight of my week was the Steve McQueen roll... mmm... Oh yea, I suppose it is worth mentioning that on Wednesday I was in full winter clothes, and by Saturday it was hot hot hot just like that.
