In his red BMX outfit, helmet and matching Vans shoes, Ben Fong rode into the crowded classroom on his bike and popped a wheelie in front of the three visiting Nike executives. Fong, a senior at the Laguna College of Art & Design, on Thursday morning was acting the role of BMX biker Jimmie Johnson. He was part of a team of four graphic design LCAD students pitching the "Nike Track It" phone app concept to the executives who had flown in from Nike's corporate headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. Simply explained, the concept presented by the team of Fong, Matt Dawson, Charlene Chand and Chay Land was a data-tracking device built into the bike, which transmits data to a mobile phone to show how a BMX biker performs on a particular circuit.

Every worthwhile institution springs from the minds of creative people who see a need, have a vision and muster resources to bring physical form to their plans. Sometimes those ideas meet more of a need than the founders had in mind. And sometimes growth and development gain momentum on their own. This is the story of the Laguna College of Art & Design, an accredited, degree-granting college that started as a community-based art school, one that was intended to primarily serve the residents of Laguna Beach.

It's not every day that people get the chance to do something creative that they're not only passionate about, but also pays their bills. Toes on the Nose window dresser Sydney Hensler says she got lucky. "It's something I never expected to do, but it totally fits me in a weird way," the Newport Beach resident said. "I really enjoy doing it, and I really enjoy doing it in Laguna Beach because I feel like it's a community that appreciates it. " Hensler, 28, was working at Toes on the Nose in downtown Laguna about two years ago when she was asked to try her hand at the storefront windows that face South Coast Highway.

Laguna Beach High School art students have a new tool in their arsenal that grants them access to a deeper level of complexity in their work. Since fall, students in Kerry Pellow's graphic arts and design class have used the Epilog Laser to etch and carve into wood, acrylic and fabric. The machine connects to a computer and recreates the on-screen design on the chosen medium. Grants from SchoolPower and the Festival of Arts Foundation funded the laser, which looks like a copy machine with a glass door that offers a view of the laser beam in action.

A little whimsy, a little satire, that's what meets the eye when viewing Sam Brown's exhibit at Wax Poetic Gallery. The show is a collection of his stick figure drawings accompanied by sentences superimposed on the art contributed by people who have visited his website. The subjects in his pieces are stick figure people reacting to dogs, ducks, robots or monsters. Some of the pieces are dark, while others are light and playful, but Brown and his fans agree, there's plenty of room for viewers to come up with their own interpretations.

About 10 years ago, an unusual idea came to Stephanie Wirkkala while she was working as a graphic designer for a high-end toilet maker. "They made these $3,000 toilets that looked like lions," she said. "But they used the standard toilet bolt covers that were on other toilets. " The bolts secure the toilet to the floor and to the sewer pipe underneath it. The standard bolt covers just didn't fit with the sumptuous look of the royal commodes her client made, but Wirkkala soon found out that in the world of toilets, one toilet bolt cover fit all. So she decided to decorate some bolt covers for herself and her friends by gluing silver and gold beads to a cap. "They all loved them, but they weren't practical," she said.
