Tuesday Night Dinner at SHoP

Just completed the flyer for this months Tuesday Night Dinner event, an underground dining club operating at various venues throughout the city of Chicago. Tomorrow's event with be at the Southside Hub of Production or SHoP for short. My wife and I attended the last one at Bang Bang Pie Shop in Logan Square, which was based around the theme of a southern summer crab boil. Strawberry shortbread biscuits topped with brûléed sugar by the fine folks at Bang Bang were the finale to the delicious meal provided by the Tuesday Night Dinner chefs. 

I'd like to thank my pal Liz Wolferman who does social media for Tuesday Night Dinner for asking me to help out with the art for this months event. More info on their Facebook page.

Self Portrait WIth Death Playing Fiddle

Recently completed the under-painting for my homage to Swiss symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin's piece of the same name. Hoping for this to be the first in a series based on classic motifs in art concerning the symbolism of death, mythology, and the western esoteric tradition.
