Envisioning Dr. John

Searching images on the web today I stumbled upon a sketch I did of Dr. John in concert in 1989, which has been sold continuously in New Orleans as a t-shirt design I created for him at that time. The drawing first appeared in an interview authored in Fall 1990 for the art journal BOMB, linked here. The good doctor is still performing, and it's great to see the likeness still out there. I'll reproduce it here on the blog, a few lines quickly rendered for my buddy of more than 40 years, the incomparable Mac Rebennack, .

A new face for the Airport in the Sky

I was out on Catalina Island yesterday and got a look at the new face on the hangar up at The Airport In The Sky. It's a fresh paint job with a new retro type treatment, in keeping with the heritage of the place. Here's before and after views. What a great improvement, and a beautiful welcome for visitors arriving by air!
