Today is my last day at The Virginian-Pilot, where I’ve worked as an illustrator/designer for 30 years. For about 15 of them, it was the best news design position in the country — maybe the world. The writers, photographers, copy editors and newsroom leaders were bright, cheerful risk takers and they all inspired me to be like them, and in doing so, discover who I am as a visual communicator, an artist and a man. I will always be so grateful to them.

Tomorrow, I begin the next edition, as a full-time scrap artist!
