Ahhh! The very first edition of A&E Spotlight, the entertainment publication I designed from scratch for @reporterherald and @timescall. #JournalistLife
So proud to have had a hand in helping my @dailycamera newsroom bring this to #Boulder. Great work and a great team! @coloradopress first right here.
First hike of 2014! And an absolutely beautiful day for it here in #Boulder. Thanks, @melbesser, for this awesome Monday!
Seems the whole state also caught a case of Broncos fever. Especially the folks at West Flanders Brewing (1125 Pearl St.), which has made a bet with Seattle’s Elysian Brewing. The winning brewery’s head brewer will be flown to the losing team’s city (at the loser’s expense), take over the operation and brew up a specialty brew. On the day of the tapping, the loser will fly the winner’s team flag for two weeks, or until the beer’s gone.
Read my complete column for even more events happening in Boulder this weekend.

I had a lot of fun with this centerpiece. Modeled after pages my coworker, Lauren Fagan has done, I played around with tint screens and colored type to mix things up.
I think the sidebar helps break things up while still feeling like part of the package. All in all, it’s a clean page.

A great cover from our neighbors in Denver. The art and headline work well, and it’s just a solid page.
My column, to guide you through this weekend in Boulder.
Cyclocross National Championships at Valmont Bike Park (off Valmont road, a few blocks from Foothills Parkway) are taking place from Thursday to Sunday, with all kinds of races and events. Course, if you appreciate the beer side of life, Boulder Beer (2880 Wilderness Place) is just down the road and ready to warm you up with a pint or two. On Saturday, there’s even a post-race party at 5:30 p.m.
Got swept up in this article. After tearing up at the photo above, with a father and son reading the paper.
Definitely food for thought.
Susan Sontag was right: War photography can anesthetize
A troubling new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art throws into question the medium’s very purpose
Top Photo: “When War Comes Home” by Andrea Bruce
…Of the hundreds of photos here at the Brooklyn Museum, the image that most impresses me isn’t especially violent, nor does it offer a typical representation of war. No blood has been spilled for this shot, and there are no dead bodies, no glory or gore. Andrea Bruce’s monochrome photo “When the War Comes Home” (2006) depicts a seemingly unremarkable domestic scene: a man with his son in the living room of their home, reading the newspaper. The father, who still has a fuzzy head of trim hair, and must’ve only recently returned from combat, sits forward on the couch, hovering over the paper sprawled on the coffee table before him. He looks at that day’s news squarely, with a seemingly solemn expression. This man may have left the war, but the war doesn’t appear to have left him. Next to him, his son, perhaps six or seven years old, stands to meet his father’s shoulders, wearing a kid-sized military costume, dressed in a khaki camouflage coat and a helmet that sits heavily atop his head and falls below his eyes. The boy, mimicking his father’s pose, tentatively rests a hand on the newspaper—and like his dad, he’s not smiling. In the other hand, he holds a toy gun…

What a clever illustration for their centerpiece. It’s got the white space I love with this pop of color you can’t help but glance at.
