Some of the shenanigans we got into just weren't appropriate for the internet. Even though, yes, we have seen some pretty messed up sh!t on the Internet.

For the second year in a row Chris Van Deusen takes us out to eat bratwurst and drink beer out of 1/2 gallon mugs. There was a lot of crazy chicken dancing and beautiful women that looked like they just stepped off a bottle of St. Pollygirl. Thanks for the Liver damage, it was a blast.

 

Got to love Germans, they will find any reason to drink.

The dog pack went for a hike on one of those elusive days off that we get so little of.

This past Friday, July 30th, a number of the pack set out at 5AM for the San Jacinto Mountain Peak.  
Max, Rick, Cayley and I took Black Mountain Trail starting at 830AM and headed for the peak. 7.25 miles to the peak, the trek spanned a change of 4,500 feet in elevation. The entire 14.5 mile round trip took me 10 hours. The others made it back at different times.  

Here are just a few of the photos to catalogue our epic foray into the wild.

Check out our most recent photoshoot with the crew from Groundworks, a landscaping company based out of Carson, CA.

It's common knowledge to everyone here at the studio that the floor might as well be my second home. Well, it was common knowledge after that party a few weeks ago, and especially after those photos from last year's Halloween party began circulating... Anyway, this week I had the opportunity to put in some QT with the underbelly of the photo cove when the crew of Groundworks piled in, ready for a shoot.

 

 

Hot to Trot 2010: Pin-Up's, Planes, and a Party, Oh My!

The dogs contribute a snazzy logo to help out with Aim High's charity event, hosted in our own backyard.

Anyone who knows this pack of crazy dogs knows we like to party. When we aren’t basking in the glow of our monitors, frantically typing out copy, or slinging paint on canvas, we like to have a little fun. What some of you may not know is that a few of us have a fancy for that certain retro flair. You know, the elegant curves of a ‘40’s Packard, the polished steel of a P-38 Lightning, and slight tease of a pin-up girl.
