This was a great assignment from Kelly Lewis at tthe OC Weekly - a fantastic topic.  She pushed the art in a couple new directions that I think really made the difference.  This was our first collaboration together, but I hope not our last.

My suggestion to Google is that they should invest in the best form of PR money can buy, that is, they should start by actually relating with the public in a respectful way.
