Loca-Oeno-Turo-Philes Celebrate All That's Local

This is my first in a two-week series of blogs, videos, emails and Tweets that will have you dreaming about wine, cheese, bread and All That’s Local!

I mentioned a Loca–Oeno–Turo–Phile on my Save the Date email yesterday.

You might be thinking… here’s goes Kathy again! Is she making this stuff up?

Yep... I think I just liked the sound of the phrase; it sort of rolled off my tongue.

But, it's not as crazy as it may look. The phrase is the combination of words that describe “a person who likes to eat local and is a lover of wine and cheese”! We all can relate to this.

Bottom line, I’m really visual and we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words.

So I inquired about a local cartoonist who could depict an Olympic Peninsula Loca-Oeno-Turo-Phile and Keith Curtis was recommended.

This is my vision created by Keith… if you have others in mind (cartoons, pictures, etc.) please send them my way. I will post them to the website.

Can't you just almost taste the wine and savor the cheese amid the beauty we call home?

Come visit us for the NW Wine and Cheese Tour at Olympic Cellars on April 17-18 and celebrate All That's Local!

Cheers, Kathy

Keith currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula where he maintains a thriving freelance illustration business and secretly spends his days working at a great metropolitan newspaper. Here’s what Keith says about himself… “I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I’ve illustrated jewelry catalogs, prime labels, done logo design, illustrated book and magazine covers and interiors, and taught several digital pre-press workshops at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. I have art degrees from institutes of higher learning that were almost immediately rendered obsolete when desktop printing came to be. Fortunately, I’ve managed to stay at the cutting edge of digital art and printing.”
