Local artist goes digital with OU logos
A traditional artist by desire and training, Buffalo Gauge turned an eye toward the electronic future and graphic design.
With everything going digital, Gauge wanted to see how his love of painting would translate onto the screen. He was skeptical at first of the medium many people relate to as computer drawing, but soon realized his talent translated well into the digital language.
“The creative process is the same as traditional; you have to think it out or it won’t work,” Gouge said. “You have layers you have to keep in order for the image to come together.”
A project he’s tinkered with while enrolled in the Graphics Communications program at Indian Capitol Technology Center has the potential of gaining popularity and commercial success. The geometric shape of the letters on many University of Oklahoma logo designs seemed ideal for native designs.

“We are appointed by the bishop, but Cookson’s love for each other and acceptance of new people is a wonderful church trait,” said Freese, who holds a Master’s in Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary.

Self-publishing: More work, but more control
These days, just about anyone can publish a book, but getting people to buy it is another matter.
“Everybody wants to write a book, but it’s just not that easy,” said author Bill Wetterman. “You have to have passion in order to really be a novelist. But you can self-publish on a shoestring budget.”
Wetterman discussed the ins and outs of self-publishing, as well as writing advice, with the Tahlequah Writers group Saturday afternoon at the Cherokee Arts Center.
