Check out Hannah's tattoo ;) What a cutie. I think it is the sincerest form of flattery and appreciation when someone puts your artwork on their bod. I don't think I could have sat under a needle for that myself! Brave gal... Thanks Hannah!! Turned out beautifully!!

"prairie king" / 5x5
I just love this painting... It was in one of my online sales, but I put it aside for myself when it didn't sell right away. And then someone else loved it, too. It is now being shipped to it's new home in Chicago. Thanks Jackie!

Cheese Bar! Simplicity is key. I'm making logos for the new Cheese Bar that will soon grace our presence roundabout SE 60th and Belmont. Run by my pal Steve Jones (of Steve's Cheese fame) and my newest pal Beachum. The best part: I'm getting partially paid in cheese and beer. Trade rules! The logos/sign are based le ol' charming Tabac signs of France. Can you picture the one below with neon (where the white striping is) and surrounded by little round white and yellow flashing bulbs? Me too.
