Museum (h)ours

Time to take down the show of drawings I've had up at Cafe 1923 here in Hamtramck for the last several weeks. They were all sketches I've done of objects at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and they were on display while the debate raged (still unsettled) over whether the city can sell off some of the museum's collection to pay its debts. Here's a sample of the ones I've managed to photograph or scan, to give a feel of the show. (And thanks to Hatch Hamtramck for the opportunity.)

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Some photos

All shot with my aging iPhone. The DSLR is not quite as handy.

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.
