Shaun White Reprise

Shaun White and Olympic Gold for snowboarding

Some of Joey's marketing materials for Shaun White and Red Bull

The coveted guitar picks!

The other day I posted about the Snowboarding Olympic Gold Medalist, Shaun White, and the fact that our son, Joey, who ran a division of a marketing company called Sauce Design, was proud to have both Shaun and Red Bull as his clients. I wasn't able to post pictures of his work because I misplaced my camera battery and charger. I have since found both, which is a great relief. I found these pictures in Joey's computer, so ( drum roll, please) I am very proud to present some of the marketing materials that Joey, in the last year of his life, created for Shaun White and Red Bull. (He also made a fantastic video which I don't know how to insert here.) Just as a coincidence, you may notice that Joey and Shaun had very similar coloring.

And frankly, this is just one little slice of his genius, and it is especially apropos with the Olympics going on right now. The kid made us proud in so many ways.

This is wonderful - a little window into one of Joey's talents and art! Thank you so much for sharing it here. He sounds like he was a true Renaissance man. What a treasure, to have these things.

Thanks for sharing, once again. I had noticed the same coloring...I think Joey had him beat in looks however. Know you miss him. He looks to have been so talented.
Great day to you both. Love Sharon

Most awesome! I did tell my boys and Gary about it. Now I can show them proof.

Joey is brilliant! Wonder what God has him doing? I'd sure like to think he's still in marketing. Joey would have experienced an earthly pride about Shaun's achievements and his part of all that if he were in the here and now.

But in heaven--Knowing you helped someone excell at the talents God gave a person--well there must be a lot of high-fives going on between God and Joey.

I don't think we just wander aimlessly around in heaven wearing grins but having no jobs.

I'm going to be planting flowers with birds on my shoulders--but now Joey--what is he doing?
