The black background was replaced with the green texture for the wall of the cafe. A generic window was added and a street scene put into position and blurred slightly. The "No Strings Cafe" name was set, flipped and placed in the window. A wall sconce was added to the wall and "soup" created and dropped into the bowl to complete the scene.

Williams-Quinn Billboard
Williams-Quinn Billboard

WGN Radio host, John Williams announced a contest, of sorts, to promote his show. I took this as a creative challenge and designed some for him. Although he said, "No Photoshop" I just couldn't resist. The theme I chose was that he had powerful friends so you had better listen. The first was with Illinois Governor, Pat Quinn. The images were borrowed from his page.

Clay Jenkinson (aka: Teddy Roosevelt) is a frequent guest of Williams' - both on the air and in live performances. It doesn't get more powerful than a former President.
