This photo was taken in Columbus, Ohio in late December of 1981.  I almost felt compelled to knock on the door and see if they wanted to interview me.   It was an unsettling time in my life. / Those Millar Mitts do go way back.

I’m working on my statement for the exhibit and will continue to post here whenever Hope and Feathers start putting details online.  Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for following.

American Demographics / Hope and Feathers Exhibit

I’ll write more about this later, but I wanted to start posting some of the images that will be in an exhibit at Hope and Feathers Gallery in Amherst this October.  The photos were all featured as illustrations for articles in American Demographics Magazine and were hand colored by the amazing Robby Aceto.  I put this photograph up on my Instagram a few days ago (jonkcrispin) and got a great comment from “thepunchandjudyman” identifying this fellow as Percy Press II.  Check out this amazing clip.  Classic Punch and Judy with a Christmas theme.

The exhibit opens on 4th October and runs through the month.  Opening reception on the 4th.  Hope (and Feathers) to see you there.

John Wilson Painting

I love this painting.  John had given it to me in December, but since it needed to be taken off the stretchers for transport back to the States I wasn’t able to get it until Peter and I were back in the UK in March.  We rolled it into a big cardboard tube and I was able to carry it onto the plane.  Michelle at Hope and Feathers did a fantastic job restretching it and built a great frame.  I was so happy to pick it up yesterday.  It looks great in the living room.
