Guy Kudlemeyer
A one-month cross-country trip on the highways of America in 1968 created a plethora of indelible images in a 12 year-oldÆs mind, but three things experienced along that trip stood at the forefront: Truck stops; Diesel trucks; and locally- and regionally-branded petroleum products marketing. These interests later manifested themselves in the form of the composition of many magazine articles; articles that saw print in "Automobilia" magazine; "Overdrive Truckers Magazine", and "Check The Oil!" magazine, among others. Guy is a graduate of the University of Oregon with a degree in Fine and Applied Arts/Graphic Design. After graduation, Guy was employed in several engaging and satisfying positions in the book and magazine publishing field.
