Words and pictures. Whatever happened during the week that I can remember. Occasional pleas for money. A new one every Monday.
This Saturday, April 21st, 5-8pm, there’ll be an opening reception for a new group of bookshelf paintings I’ve been working on the last couple years. I go back to this motif every few years as a way to gauge where I’m at. Spending hours looking at the order/disarray of my books lets me reflect on what I’ve been doing and what the path onward might be. These pictures are some of the most abstract but personal ones I’ve done.
Come by and say hello if you’re free.
Speaking of judging covers, my series of Chicago authors continues with Sandra Cisneros in April,
Richard Wright in May,
and an Algren to replace the one that someone took home with them. Collect ’em all right here!
More next Monday.
p.s. I was a guest on a new podcast called Ridesharing Stories to talk about the driving racket, among other things.
