Starting To Feel It In My Bones.


I think the best way to start off the week is to open a New Glarus sour. This beaut was just the right amount of everything that made the Bears victory even sweeter. 


Worked on some growler art for the homies at Twisted Hippo brewing. I'm kind of excited to see how this turns out. 


Checked out the WBEZ chef battle royale over at Salvage One and waited in line for half an hour.


Got to the door and waited in line again.
 

Got inside and waited in line for beer.


And then waited in line again for food.


Took a break and went outside for a breather


Came back inside and waited in line again for food.


It was a really cool space, with a lot of antiques and wares all around this massive 2 story warehouse. 


This awesome old bar where Intelligentsia was being served was the only place without a line. 


Antique robot nip.


Ha.


Hard to tell if Pickel is in costume or not. This could be a normal Tuesday night for him. There is nothing that he is wearing that I miss, although he can easily get away with this costume on any given night at Debonair Social Club.


This is what happens when 4 grown ass men get together with movable halloween decor. And yes, we giggled throughout this whole process.
 

Checked out an old abandoned bar party where Kojack and Ryan from Virtue had a little jammy with a kick ass punk band that made me wish I was white for a second. 


Terrible graffiti is the true mark of being in a terrible neighborhood. 


I think even Satan would be disappointed in how ghetto this is. 


Ryan explaining why he looks like a hipster lumberjack. Because he's an idiot. 


I have no idea how I got up the next morning, but looking at a wall like this will get you goin. I don't think my mind would be able to comprehend or come up with anything like this and if it could, I'd be afraid. Migue kills it yo. 


Cyfn with a simple style that looks like Gyfn.


Rila murdered this wall. It looks all smooth and soft like his pretty little mouth. 


I ended up doing a piece for Reggie Destin who tragically passed away this past weekend. R.I.P. Rede. 


Finishing up with no where to go. 


Fin. 


Woke up from a nap and painted a face. I never got this close to a man's face...I hope I never have to again. 


Its so hard to find these days. 



This is one hard working drag queen. Three costume changes (one of which is not pictured) and like five songs within an hour on a Sunday morning. If the endless mimosas or bloodies don't get you going, a hard working queen should. 




stopped by Longman for Virtue Cider's fall thing where bobbing for apples in a tub of cider would prove to be really fucking hard. Anthony and Ryan challenging each other to a cider beard off, complete with a sticky beard kiss on the mouth - seriously. 


Ended the week checking out an impromptu performance by Hannibal Burress at Town Hall Pub. I slammed a beer and did a jello shot by this time after passing out at the Trimm manor. It was time to call it a day. 

I hope to see yall at my party this Saturday. I'm turning old. See me here.

So Many Balls, So Little Time.


Work beckoned and I answered by painting a bunch of scrotums and dicks.


When did donuts become so hip and cool considering that this was the pastry that we associated all pigs to love and hold dear to them. Enjoying this vaginal treat makes us all pigs...however Glazed does make a hell of a donut. The maple bacon long john made me blush a little in a perverted gluttonous way. 


Get it? Women clean and make donuts. 


Finally got some gloss on this so it wouldn't smudge anymore. Now that this is done, I dont know what the hell to do with it. No one cares that I do art, so why should I give a shit?



Prepping at Flesh For Food's headquarters made me realize why I could never be a full on vegetarian. The pig is just too magical and damn tasty as demonstrated by this beautiful strata of bacon. You wanna taste? Come to my birthday party here.


Flesh for Food and I did a preview for my next beer party/bday jam over at Maria's in Bridgeport where the newly remodeled patio would soon debut. 


Every proper work startion should have plenty to drink, kimchi, hot sauce from St. Martin and chopped herbs. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. 


We did a pop up Korean street food stand appropriately titled "Big Trouble, Little Korea." The only trouble I see is Alex's beard smelling of kimchi and pork later on. 
 

This is the only picture I have of the food we made. Street heart Donna displaying how sexy a paper plate full of food can be. I think she was actually sleep eating.


So 5 hours of drinking wasn't enough so why not head up to Wheeling around 11:30pm for an all night pinball expo? 












I was definitely the Joe Pesci of this game. I loved how the graphics kept making references to Lethal Weapon 2. It was kind of a trip. 


These dudes felt right at home because their moms were waiting outside in a car.





This was an awesome one. Never thought I'd see cousin it in pinball form, but this one of the games that always had a line of single divorced men waiting to play. 


Amidst it all, I ran into old time friend, talented producer, beer aficionado, I guess avid pinball enthusiast and all around awesome dude - Dreas. This is the kind of Greek face only an Italian mother can love. This is also at like 4 am and I thought I was hallucinating, but then I checked out his arm hair and realized he was mad real. Thanks for the ride home and sorry for passing out.



They also had a buffet.


There is a pimply 47 year old single male that just wet himself looking at this. 



I kept thinking about that volleyball scene in Top Gun and how I wish I was the sand in that scene.


Woke up four hours later to check out a talented friend's short movie at River East.


 Ana recommending some good brunch spots around the area.


Speaking of brunch, We all went to the West Egg Cafe after the screening and sort of giggled and was disturbed by how round the Asian egg's eyes were. I see the yellow and brown, what race/ethnicity are the other two eggs? I'm just confused as hell. They all look delicious to me. 


You wanna see this little guy? come to my bday party asshole.


Its funny because its true. 






A little of this, a little of that.
