    An Update

    I'm settled in my new home on the coast of Northern California (more on that here) and already back at work with several projects going. Among them:


    Hope you enjoyed the wrap-up! The adventure continues...

    Our Volksvegan Adventure

    There won't be much changing around here this summer since we're on the road in the "volksvegan" van that runs on veggie oil. You can follow our adventure on "Our Volksvegan Adventure" blog or see photos from our trip in this flickr photo collection. We're hoping to tour the Northwest in search of a new place to live, but until we find a place to settle, we'll be calling the volksvegan and the road our home. Head to Volksvegan.org for details!

    Recently Finished Projects

    It has been a crazy spring! I have recently completed several long-term projects that I am certainly excited to be done with. One is a web site for a landscaping company (a friend of my aunt's): T & D Landscaping. I am quite pleased with how the site came out, and thankfully so is the client. Working with lots of green and natural imagery was really fun, and my client was very easy to work with. I love clients like that. :)

    Another site I recently finished for my job at PETA is KentuckyFriedCruelty.com. The site is a parody of KFC's site, aimed at telling the truth about what goes into KFC chicken (hint: it's cruelty). CommUNITY Walk BannerI was the primary designer on this project but had plenty of help from my lovely co-workers. It was my first big site redesign since starting at PETA, so I'm very excited about it being done. And it even launched right around my birthday!

    The first Moscow CommUNITY Walk was held April 28, and I played a role in making it a success. I began working with a group of local citizens to plan the event last fall, and have produced all the graphics and marketing materials for the event, including logos, letterhead, flyers, posters, t-shirts, news articles, banners, and even a giant mural that was recreated by children at the event. It was a huge success and a lot of fun. The goal of the event was to bring about unity within community and set aside differences to walk together and get to know our neighbors and fellow Moscowvites. The image shows the logo I designed on a vinyl banner that was carried by Moscow's mayor during the walk. She even used it to block traffic! More photos of the event are on flickr.

    Front of Hempfest ShirtAnd last but certainly not least, I designed the t-shirts and promotional materials for Moscow's annual Hempfest again this year. I worked on this project last year as well, and had so much fun that I couldn't pass up the chance to do it again. When else would I have a chance to design with giant hemp leaves? The planning committee for Hempfest was a lot of fun, and so was the event, which was held April 21. This year's theme was "Hemp can Save the World" and once again, the t-shirts all but sold out. I encourage anyone not familiar with the hemp movement to check out Seattle Hempfest, Hemp.org, and the Jack Herer, who wrote what I call the Hemp Bible, The Emperor Wears No Clothes.

    Hopefully if I have time between finishing up work and planning our ultimate Volksvegan Adventure, I can update my portfolio with these recently finished projects. :)

    SPAIN PICTURES!

    I had a wonderful time in Spain and have been busy catching up on work and organizing my insane amount of photos. I'm still not done naming and labeling them all... See some of the photos below, or visit my photo set on flickr.

    I wrote about Spain on my life blog and discussed Gaudi's amazing Barcelona architecture on Green Options.

    I will be out of the country...

    I just love saying that, but really, I will be out of the country! I am going to Spain with mi familia March 30 to April 10. I'll be heading down to Boise Thursday morning and then flying into Barcelona with my parents. I will be returning to Moscow the morning of the 10th. Be sure to watch my photo blog and flickr page for photos of the trip! I will try to post some while I'm there if I get a chance. :)

    We are going to Spain to visit my sister, who is studying in Granada this semester. We'll be there for Holy Week, which is apparently a very big deal in Spain. I'll get to see Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Sevilla, and Cordoba. The only thing I am worried about is that the Spaniards love two things I abhor - ham and bullfighting. I hope I can find good vegan grub there so I don't have to live on bread, salad, and wine. Well, maybe that wouldn't be so bad... :)

    If I don't respond to e-mails or calls the next couple weeks, now you know why... :D

    I'm all over the internet!

    The internet is a great networking tool, whether I'm catching up with old friends on MySpace, organizing my photos on Flickr, chatting with other designers on the HOW Forum, or blogging away. I figured I should collect all of my various profile pages so that people can find me all over the internet. So here goes, a list of my various profiles, blogs, and daily distractions on the web:

    My profiles on Networking Sites

    • My MySpace Profile: you better add me as a friend (unless you don't know me that is, then I might get creeped out).
    • My Flickr Photos: peruse my amateur photography.
    • My MyBlogLog Profile: I just discovered this site for keeping track of blogs & the people who read them, and since I have so many blogs...
    • My HOW Forum Profile: this networking forum for creative & design professionals is how I survive working at home.
    • My HipForums Profile: yes, I'm a hippie, and HipForums are a web-savvy hippie playground.
    • My Facebook Profile: it's kinda like MySpace, only way better looking.


    My Sites & Blogs

    • unplug: the site of my activist magazine, which someday I hope to continue producing. In the meantime, I do update the blog with my political, progressive, environmental, and activist musings.
    • BarterFaire.org: this is a site I design & maintain for the barter faire community in the Northwest. I love attending barter faires so much that I made a site about it. This site has a blog, too, of course.
    • Our Volksvegan Adventure: the story of our veggie-oil-fueled VW bus. I discuss how we converted our VW to run on bio-diesel and waste veggie oil, our progress in restoring our beloved bus, and hopefully I'll cronicle our many future travels in the bus.
    • MeganPru.com: obviously you know about this site, since you're here. This is my personal and professional web page, which also features several blogs (I told you I was a blog addict!). Do check out my Life Blog, which serves as a journal of my adventures, and my Photo Blog for a sampling of my favorite photos.
    • I recently joined a blog on green living called Green Options. I write a weekly column on Fridays on green art, design, and culture. You can see my recent blog entries here.


    Wow, that's a lot. Bring on the internet stalkers (I'm kidding, please don't stalk me in a creepy way)!
