Lumber True Story of the Day:
My third year at calarts, I had an internship/scholarship at Mattel. It was an awesome, amazing, and unbelievable experience I will never forget. I earned the nickname Ruckus because when I introduced myself, I used the phrase, “…and I’m here to bring the Ruckus to Mattel.” So everyone began calling me Ruckus during my tenure there at the Barbie HQ. I made these little Stickers up and my mentor Gary enjoyed them so much, he made tons of copies of them and distributed them to his fellow disgruntled Mattel employees. It was an odd feeling walking around Mattel and looking around in strangers cubicles and seeing the Ruckus stickers proudly plastered and on display within the confines of their drab Mattel walls.
