Who's Behind Sock and Key?
We're a family living in Southern California. We believe in the power of stories to show us who we are, who we're afraid to become, and who we hope to be.
Satire is perhaps our all time favorite genre because it packages truth in hilarious exaggerated characters and situations. It's both an escape from and a sobering reminder of real life.
We also love epic Sci-Fi adventures that uphold heroes and encourage us to become more than we are. They point us toward hope.
Sock and Key
There once was a family that went to a festival in Portland. As you may know, Portland has several fountains that are designed to be played in. This family's kids wanted to play so they took off their socks and shoes and rushed in. But somehow when they came back, one of their socks was missing. Despite looking everywhere, they couldn't find it. The child was really uncomfortable so they asked for the car key and went with their older sibling to get another pair from their luggage. As luck would have it, when their parents asked for the key back they couldn't find it anywhere and the car auto-locked, so they couldn't check inside or get the spare key which was in the mom's purse in the glove box. "I told you I'd need my purse," She reminded her husband. But their luck turned when they heard on the festival loud speakers that their raffle number had been picked for a free custom portrait of their family in the style of their favorite show. From then on they always told people when asked about the custom portrait that it only cost them a sock and key.
