UFW 04.14.10


Just right now, as I’m typing this, I found a glob of frosting/glitter on my collar. Jesus.

SO! Final face! I hope ya’ll don’t mind the differing format, there was a lot to jam in there and I wanted it all. One year of ugly, nice!
I’d like to heap thanks on everyone that took any sort of time to check this series out. You’re all my favorite!

Here’s some aftermath shots:

This is where we ended up shooting the last few months of UFWs. The WKE space.

I finally got to make one of those Kentucky Derby winner’s rose thingys. I’ve been looking for a opertunity for a while now.

The cake was from Helen Bernhard’s Bakery, they’re great. Buy things from them. They totally let me get all nit-picky-art-director on the cake.

When I got the cake, they had accidentally written VFW but that’s cool, Vander Yacht Face Wednesdays.
My coworkers devoured it all the same.

UFW cakin'

Neevel got a face piece. DAYM, THANKS NEEVEL. Now I’m going to start a weekly series of David eating cakes with my face printed on them.

I feel like I should confess something to all of you now. Maybe some of you know that I work for an advertising company. Maybe it will come
as no surprise when I tell you this secret. Just to lift the curtain a little, this project has all been a viral campaign to raise awareness for this.

    A GREAT year. Oh! the memories.

    I didn’t see this one coming but now Wednesday Withdrawal will be coming. Fo sho.
    (possibly only cured by the well known folk remedy- Nice Tush Tuesday.)

    THANKS, Cari,

    What a great ending! Good work Cari. I will miss Wednesdays – now they will just be boring days with nothing to look forward to. I think Thom maybe on to something for Tuesdays though…

    PS – it took a couple of weeks, but Jerry became a fan of UFW too! Now that is saying something!!! You turned a logic-based, tax crunching, contract making attorney into a UFW fan!!! There is hope for him yet!!

    What a great run. Thanks for all the laughs, and for all the crazy looks I kept getting from people ease-dropping on my screen at coffee shops.

    Thom, you’ve always been a huge supporter, thank YOU.

    Heather, haa! I’m glad Jerry came around, my face is an acquired taste for some.

    Tristan, I hope you didn’t spit take hot coffee at your screen and then the people over your shoulder spit take when they ease-dropped you.

    Thanks all ya’ll!

    In a way, it’s so sad to see UFW end on a high note. I’m not sure you’ve exhausted the possibilities of this format. Maybe you and Neevel should develop a different weekly project?

    On another subject: There is a thing on Google Documents now where you can collaborate on drawings…even real-time. Doesn’t that seem interesting? I’m trying to figure out how cool that is.

    Also: I got a great book in the mail, thanks!

    Hey Lis! Been a long time! You’re making some pretty lovely things yourself now a days. Look at all the names I know you by!

    John, I saved you a piece of cake but then I ended up eating it. I think my new weekly project with Neevel will be “Take Neevel Out to Lunch To Repay Him For All the Time I Stole From Him Wednesdays.”

    What Google thing is that? They have too many applications now for me to keep track of, SketchUp?

    Thumbs up on book!!!

    Hi there, I’ve been following you for like a year or so now and never missed any UFW, so sad it is over. Would you mind if I post this on my blog? A big hello from Mexico.
