Megan at Spring Lake Park in Penfield/East Rochester area by our house. Not sure why it's called "spring lake" since there's no lake. Just Irondequoit Creek...
A view of Irondequoit Creek from the top of the Honey Creek Trail heading toward Linear Park
A nice little bench
AND NOW FOR SOME MORE FOUND ART!!!
"First To Fly?" This is from a school project I was working on, which was illustrating a weird book I found about Michigan mysteries. This was about a guy who claimed to be the first to fly a plane. Interesting fact: The character on the right is based on Bruce Willis and at one on the left is Joe Millionaire.
"Manhunter" from the same series. If I remember correctly, it was about a lunatic who hunted hunters.
"Dexter/Hillsdale Incident." Something about UFOs or flying donut holes?
"Where's Jimmy" I think the semester ended as this is an unfinished piece about Jimmy Hoffa.
Self portrait from 2003 with silkscreen. This was inspired by a Russian religious icon painting that I turned into regional humor...
Self portrait for August 2006 zine
From July 2004 zine
From July 2004 zine (detail): Safety Sam was a creation of mine for a group promoting water safety in Muskegon. They use to have a small picture of him on a sign at Pere Marquette Beach and pass out bookmarks at local schools. Doubt either are still there. He's a trout that needs a life preserver. Then there's Sparky Anderson, former coach of the Detroit Tigers
From July 2004 zine (detail): If I remember correctly, this was inspired by a drawing on Aristotle or Socrates. Either way, the philosopher was thinking, not sleeping while the TV was on.
From July 2004 zine (detail): Angel with hockey equipment and my Aunt Linda's dog.
From July 2004 zine (detail): Man with a big fish
From July 2004 zine: Raccoon, cactus, Belle Tire guy, and a monkey setting pins. Also, one of my favorite signs of all time.

From August 2006 zine (detail): More inspiration from Maxwell Street Market with the sign. "EVERY'S THANK IN THEY BOXES BE $1.00!" I was sold at the googly eyes. The weird character building guy was someone I saw dressed like this at the Two Way Bar in Chicago. He walked in, looked around a bit, and walked back out. It was not anywhere near Halloween.
THANKS FOR WASTING YOUR TIME WITH ME! HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY!
