Take Me To My Happy Place, Take Me Fishing

Fishing is something I associate with my childhood and my grandfather, Eldon Burn, in particular. We used to fish for bluegill, crappie, bass and catfish on Nebraska’s man-made lakes. We also fished for salmon and trout on Lake Michigan and walleyed-pike in Minnesota. So, when I see this throwback illustration style used to motivate me, I am in fact moved to fish.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
