Best of Santa Barbara® Readers’ Poll: Dug & Dot Sniff Out This Year’s Winners and Finalists! (Ethan Stewart)

ON THE COVER: Dug and Dot, played by Richie DeMaria and Caitlin Fitch, at Milpas Motors.

Indubitably Daug-some

The pert and perky Dug and Dot Daug didn't come into the world with those sprightly ears and soft cuddly pelts. The daug-acious headgear transforming Indy Associate Art Director Caitlin Fitch and Assistant Editor Richie DeMaria into Trixie's out-of-town relatives were stitched by Megan Illgner, who holds down the design desk along with Caitlin and Art Director Ben Ciccati. With the mighty advertising production team of Marianne Kuga, Alex Melton, and Helene Laine, they've all turned out this colossal issue in the most intensely hard-working week of the year. And they’ve done a fabulous job, too. You can find more of Megan's sewn works at sbseamstress... or visit her SBCAST studio at 513 Garden Street on 1st Thursday Art Walks!
