this photo was taken around this time last year during a hot, amazing week in new york. it was shot in coney island minutes before eating one of the worst hot dogs of my life. this family were shooting the air rifle game when i asked them if i could take their photograph. the dad, miguel handed me his card afterwards and i promised him i would post a print which i still have yet to do but i ordered the print for them today so it should end up with them soon enough hopefully...

(so good!) also she knows i like ben & jerry's ice cream so one day after dinner at home years ago she told me that she had bought some of that "tom & jerrys" ice cream that i like. so that leads me to this: a few months back thinkhouse PR company asked me to design a bag for ben and jerry's. i don't know why they asked me but it turned out to be fun doing it.
i have a photo of northside rough-neck keith walsh in the new issue of sidewalk mag. he is lip-sliding the conrad hotel rail. i can distinctly remember staring at that rail with rob benson years ago convinced that no one would ever touch it. how wrong we were...
