on the walk this morning me and rommel came to a door grouping, standing up on someone’s tree lawn. the grass between the sidewalk and street is called a ‘tree lawn’ around these parts, like soda’s correct name is ‘pop’….anyway it was a very strange sight, i wonder if you opened one it would be a porthole to a worm hole, all twilight zone and shit….anyway again, rommel had to tag them.

ok, i have a fairly large display of iconic images of mine on display at touch supper club in cleveland’s ohio city. pictured below is are the pieces all printed on large sheets of glass.

the first images i saw that inspired me to draw angels was the 1980 release of black sabbath’s heaven and hell record, which i bought in 1980 and was around 15 years old…..this LINK is an advertisement for the record from some rock magazine….prety cool, i’d like to get a poster of this cover someday.
