I should apologize – but I won't – for plastering a 30-foot-long cow on the front of a seafood restaurant (Eat more Seefud!). Julie Monroe has sure been patient with me over the years, with a school bus and a jail house, but now this?
Anyway, I want to thank Seattle fine art photographer Steven Whiston who donated the background image for our 2014 banner on Dale's Restaurant. He worked much harder than I expected to ensure we had a beautiful presentation (if not a tacky one, thanks to you-know-whom.) Thanks Steven and Julie and everyone else for humoring me and my sense of humor over the years!
You can see more of Steven's work at Fallenlog.com, and you should see the banner in the next few weeks!
