Good Bye Bryan, Good Luck Peabe
With great sadness, this is something I’ve known for a while now… and something that many of us knew at work: Bryan is saying goodbye to Emmis Interactive, and heading out to the West Coast. He’s going out there with Jamie, and will be pursuing his artistic career full-time.
While it pains me to see him go, there’s this rightness in his decision. He’s had great success here in Chicago with his artwork, and I can only imagine great things for him out west. Everyone else at work knows this is a great thing for Bryan, despite the fact that we all really don’t want to see him leave. It’s for the best, but it’s also just not going to be the same kind of workplace without him.
On top of that, she strung everything together with one big long piece of string, and added a custom note to each item.
In addition to the great gift, Allison pieced together (with Chris’ help) a pretty fantastic retrospective video of Bryan’s time with us. I donated a ton of images, and she put everything to a pretty spectacular soundtrack. Here’s a snippet of the crowd reaction:

Tequila shots. Fast becoming the standard group-celebratory-drink of choice.
Our server was kind enough to take a group photo.
Aaaaaand more tequila.
