Karly & Magpie met in the Summer of 2012 after a trip to the mystical land of Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. Inseparable ever since, Magpie accompanies Karly on all her adventures, including but not limited to: hiking, biking, rock climbing, beach combing, cooking, baking, and even trips to the post office.
Karly is a freelance graphic designer (check out my work at www.karlysiroky.com) specializing in branding for non-profits and small businesses. She sharpened her claws at Starbucks corporate headquarters, designing all sorts of signage you could spill your macchiato on, and also spent time with brands such as Tazo, Refreshers, La Boulange and Seattle’s Best Coffee.
Magpie is a stuffed prairie dog, specializing in looking cute in every photograph, hiding in small places, and gathering lint. His favorite activities include wearing oversized sunglasses and riding the conveyer belt at grocery stores. He does not care for small children (as they tend to shove him in their mouths) nor being called Weasel, Otter, Chipmunk, Squirrel, Stoat or Marmot (all attempted misnomers).
