Guest Post - 'We Bleed Golf' by Herb McNally

It's time for the first ever guest post on here, hopefully the first of many. Very appropriate that the first guest post is by my creative partner in IBG, Herb McNally. Herb is the genius behind the artwork you see across the platform. We to and fro as we fine tune the ideas behind the imagery that is so central to the IBG message. Once we've got a concept in place, Herb goes away and does his thing. 

He always comes up trumps not only as a graphic artist but as a great person and I feel lucky to work with him. 

Anyway, time for a few words from Herb, and unsurprisingly he's going to let his artwork do some of the talking.

See you around,

Steve.

We Bleed Golf


As many of you know, my life has been somewhat of  whirlwind for the past few months. I have been a part of many cool projects and have been asked to create a lot of new designs. During this period of time, I also had the honor of meeting most of you. My twitter account has grown by well more than 700 followers since July. I have gotten to know some of you pretty well, and there are many of you that I would call friends.


There is one common thing that has brought most of you into my life – A love for the game of golf. We think about it countless times a day. It pumps through our veins. We bleed golf.

It seems like only yesterday that I met Steve Power, Mr. I bleed Golf himself. He asked me if I would care to be a partner in a “little” project. He wanted to create a place where those of us with this affliction can come together, #lovegolf & #laughalot. I am as honored today as I was that first night we spoke.

There are many other people who I would like to thank, but the list is long and I don’t know how long my ramblings can keep your attention. Steve’s the writer. I just try to make things look cool.




Anyway, THANK YOU ALL. I hope I make you proud. If there is something you would like to see me do, you know where to find me.
