Bob Dry, Illustrator and Designer
I've worked in the creative industry for over 15 years. As an illustrator I've drawn for The Izaak Walton League, Nature's Delight, Corona and Modelo Beers, and a few others. My illustration style combines the sincerity of hand-drawing with the vibrancy of digital color application.
As a designer, my work shifted from print to web about 10 years ago and for the last few years I've overseen the design and development of websites for two large universities, the first ecu.edu and now campbell.edu. My main gig is being the web administrator for Campbell University. My late night studio work is a mix of drawing and coding for clients and my own musings.
Dry's Pond was dug out more than sixty years ago by my grandfather with help from friends and family. It's main purpose was to irrigate the crops he grew and, of course, it's always been a great place for fishing. It's an oval with one straight side along the dam. On the other side of the dam is a swamp where I caught bugs and got muddy as a kid. Today, the pond for me is a place of inspiration, of heritage, and of stories -- like the story of how Cloniger Young, my grandfather was blessed with a great deal of buoyancy. Most Sunday afternoons during the summer, he would relax and float on the pond reading his paper.
