New published works by Drake Cooper employees

Drake Cooper employs many fine individuals who, in addition to exceeding client expectations daily, pursue a number of a diverse hobbies and interests outside of work. Two of those stellar employees have recently published two very different (but equally awesome) products.


Assistant Art Director Cale Cathey has an amazing talent for design and illustration, particularly hand-drawn illustrations. He recently illustrated an entire children’s book published by the Boise State Bookstore Press. The book, entitled “Buster Becomes a Bronco,” is a light-hearted fictional history of how the Boise State mascot came into existence. You can order it here. Congrats Cale, on your foray into children’s literature!

Referred to as a “local celebrity” by reporters, Public Relations Account Manager Steve Stuebner recently added to his collection of existing work with the production of Boise’s first-ever road cycling guide. The map and guide is printed on water and tear-proof paper and the cover features a shot of Idaho’s golden girl, Kristin Armstrong. It gives detailed information on 30-plus rides in the Treasure Valley and surrounding areas including difficulty, distance, travel time (both race pace and recreational pace), start/finish location and directions. The map is Steve’s seventh trail guide. Find out more about Steve and order his publications at his website, www.stevestuebner.com. Nice job, Stuebner.
