Newest SnackHack: CottonCandy Cow!

Everyone, Meet Dr. CottonCandy Cow!

by Daric Gill

Every group needs a leader. CottonCandy Cow is this for the SnackHacks.

The following is an open letter to my latest completed sketchbook. A funny, but serious reminder that the process of sketch-booking is one of private and professional thinking. It is a personal dialogue much like journaling. It is a necessary and far too often under-appreciated form of artistic expression that continues to be a golden standard in abstract brainstorming.
