Haymarket Holiday

Rain and summer, 80’s and tornados.

Paid my taxes, the former Governor got convicted and I took a skate photo. Friday I visited the grand opening of the Freedom Museum. They had this print sculpture and the most absurd question posted. It made me laugh all weekend. I can’t wait to protest.

Press and Print

How does this make sense?

Saturday at Wilson early. I poached this skate photo. I don’t usually take the ‘action’ pictures but this guy was killing it and the locals in the backgroung watching makes the picture. (click for full-size)

Saturday Sunrise Session

After the morning session I went downtown to meet Tasha. There’s lot’s of good stuff to see if you wander around. I don’t do that enough anymore.


She’s wrapped in lights so it’s gotta look pretty wild at night.

Among the finance buldings

Bank, bank, bank, this building, bank, bank….


We walked over to Garden Fresh and checked out the Thom Lessner exhibit. I really liked the work in the front of the building but I didn’t take any pictures or write down the name. I’m not much of a scholar or journalist. After that we walked around and looked at a few other gallerys. It was near closing time and the employees didn’t care for us so much. I guess they sized up that we weren’t buying. I don’t know if there’s an etiquette to picture taking in the fancy ass ($6000 and you get a DVD and a rock to project it on) gallerys so I snuck these. The rabbits are by Laurie Hogin. I love em. There was a wall of those.

Cock out with your rock out

On the way back to the train I paid my respects at the Haymarket Riot Statue.


I added some puzzles and a picture so take a look before you leave.

Porous has been making me smile all Easter long.

We went to Little Vietnam for the holiday. They brought the wrong food so we got to try something new.

Mark finally gets a few days off this week. I’ll be happy to see him. He sent me this yesterday.

Mark Gildersleeve make the wonderful

Stay happy, stay creative and stay alive. Yell when you can.


Arrival of the 70’s. I saw a gang of rabbits an hour ago.

Skating and drawing when I can. Working when I have to. I added a new puzzle to the tinker section. Please visit and let me know what you think. Sunday night we had Chicago family lasagne dinner. I think it cooked for 7 hours.

Tomorrow the first batch of mail gets sent. I’ll post everything after it arrives so the recipients can be suprised. For now here’s a few pictures from the weekend.

I don't take the good photoemulsions
This kid skated all the way to wilson and ten minutes later..

Monday I walked over to hear Raymon Pettibone lecture. I showed up early but not early enough to avoid the longass winding line. I figure he probably said something like, “if you want to draw well, draw.” So I walked to the train, took these tourist shots, went home and worked on pictures.

I think this is something but it's kinda overgrown
I like the tree

Nicholas Peterson and his ladyfriend will be selling good stuff here on Saturday so drop by and buy something. It always feels better spending money when you know it’s going to support people who are being creative and putting thier stuff out there for the world.

At the moment I got new shoes on and “Come on Petunia” whistling on my lips….the roof is on fire.
