Speaking tonight at Harrington College

October 8, 2009
I'll be speaking tonight at Harrington College of Design in Chicago. If you're a student please stop in. I think there will be beer!

I'll be talking about my work and career as well as the importance of personal work. Other topics will include business strategy and why to bother being an artist.

Bin Laden Blowin' Up!

What's in a name? Plenty of innuendo and some art direction I suppose. BBU (which stands for Bin Laden Blowin' Up) is a politically minded Hip Hop unit that makes some of the best dance floor jams this side of Kabul. I shot them for the Chicago Reader. You can read Miles Raymer's accompanying article here.


Wild postings of my Illinois Lottery ads are out in force this month. They fit in nicely among the crop of Halloween movie posters. (That was the point)
They appear in neighborhoods, vacant lots and out of the places all over the city.
See smaller ones inside wherever you score your lotto tix. Good Luck!
