Insomnia, carthritis, and holy matrimony

For the fourth time this year, I've driven the distance between Montreal and the south suburbs of Chicago. I semi-temporarily relocated to Montreal for about half of the year. Operating my studio in Canada had proven to present various unanticipated difficulties, and I decided that I would make Illinois my home again. Not that it hasn't been home all along.
On Tuesday night, I drove a completely packed car out of downtown Montreal and onto 720 Ouest, bound for the Midwest. I made the entire drive with the help of two big cups of coffee, some bagels, about two and a half tanks of gas, Archers of Loaf, and Jawbreaker. I was able to sleep off my self induced nocturnality and draw, prepare films, and print a last minute poster job at Screwball Press. It was great to see some of the Screwball family again. It makes me happy to be closer to the Chicago printing and poster art scene again.
Speaking of Chicago poster art, those of you in the Chicago area (that's me again!) should go see my friend Jay give what I expect will be an awesome presentation about his work and process at the Hungry Brain (2319 W Belmont) this Monday, December 14th at 9 PM.

It feels good to be in Illinois. My dear, dear friend Johnny was married last night!
Brand new studio in the works, as well as lots of other great stuff. Check back soon.
