Witchy Windchime

Hoodoo Chime bamboo, wire, paper, hemp, bone, thread, metal chimes

Another creation from a few weeks back, it's looking and sounding good on our back porch. I'd been meaning to use up some scrap pieces of dried bamboo that I cut from some taller canes last summer, and since I happened to have some old chimes, wire and hoodoo bones layin' about, figured I'd put it all to use. 

I really like the dry woody tone the bamboo and bones make as they clatter together with the ethereal tinkle of the tiny metal chimes. It's been a real pleasure to listen to during the past few days of blustery stormy nights and breezy summer days.

The Scientist meets Ted Sirota's Heavyweight Dub

Very happy to announce my finished poster design for an amazing upcoming musical event. Jamaican dub reggae legend Hopeton Brown, better know as the Scientist, will be performing with Chicago musician Ted Sirota and his group, Heavyweight Dub. As an added bonus, my good buddy Mark Cooper's band Green Room Rockers will be opening up for this dub massive! This may be one of the only chances to catch this living legend of reggae music in Chicago, so be sure not to miss it!

As a huge fan of the Scientist and reggae music it has been an honor for me to be a part of this show, even if it's just doing this simple poster design. Can't wait for the show!

Dug this up the other day while going through some older sketches and drawings. Nearly forgot about it as it was for an abandoned project, figured it deserves a chance to see the light of day.
