Photo: Paul Shirey of AeroStar Sportkites held a contest to design a new logo for his kite building. This was my entry and it won. He gave me the idea accidentally in a phone call when he told me that he constantly got mail for Arrow Star. The idea just popped in my head.

Photo: Bambi asked me to make her a kite unlike any others. This was my attempt. It kept popping overcenter and deflating. I needed a much stronger spine.
