It's Miller Time!

December 4, 2007

The etching about the Beauty Salon is finished. I have decided to title it "It's Miller Time". I usually have a title for an etching or litho just crop up out of the blue and that was what happened this time-- Maggie and I went to Baker's Square about a week ago for lunch-- I saw this huge truck stopping for a stop light outside the window-- I read this message and thought right off-- There's the title for my print. I show a commuter train going past a parking lot out the window of the salon. a woman is having her hair blown dry-- perhaps her husband is just now arriving via the train and he has a thought of having a beer when he gets home. We have lived in Wheaton two and a half years now. It is a commuter city and in may ways our lives here are very different than they were in DeKalb.

a fresh start

What's with the Bulls? Lets hope they get it all together now.
Ive gotten started on a new print-- It's about the Hair styling place not too far from Wyndemere on Manchester Rd. New Image. I have been thinking about how to do it-- worrying and dreaming for more than a month over it-- finally I just plunged into it and I think it's going to be a good thing. Got some photos of the place as well as the people who work there. Getting started on this ( a litho ) was the problem.

Much concerning the NEW Blog

This will be my first effort to commit to writing what I feel my crazy efforts at visual communication are about. Most of my efforts are a sort of story-telling thing. People often say tell me about this one. So OK here's my chance to do just that. Actually, knowing the story behind one of my prints, could be unfair to the work itself- and therefor I think there will be times I just wont go into meanings or interpratations. DFD
