So, if I walked past this guy, I wouldn't know it because I've never met him before, but I know of him. Not because I'm creepy, but because 1). he is responsible for my friend Katie's really cool artwork she has hanging on her wall, it's a painted clock that she bought from the Anne Bonney when it was still around, and then 2). because he did this amazing mural for my friends ruben and lacey's wedding, which I loved a whole lot, then 3). just today, my friend cathy shared this new column with me, written and illustrated by him, and her husband carlos is the content of one of the illustrations. So anyway, he just moved to Seattle and I like the column a lot, especially the illustrations, and of course his take on the "Seattle Freeze." Read it here, or buy some of his art here. AND P.S. Derek, your housewarming sounds like a whole lot of fun. Welcome to Seattle.
