A SILENT FILM | You Will Leave a Mark | 2009 (by AboutMusicRecords)

Flight delayed at PVD. Layover in ATL possibly compromised. No biggie, I’ve got A Silent Film in my ear.  (silently panicking inside though)

Forefathers of Illustration

My day began at The National Museum of American Illustration.  A gloomy Sunday on Bellevue provided the opportunity to peruse original works and masterpieces [by Maxfield Parrish, Normal Rockwell and JC Leyendecker] alone.  A gorgeous, gilded, century+ old mansion all to myself. (I can pretend).

Leyendecker was the biggest surprise of the bunch.  A style I recognized, but never knew the origin.  JC used his own likeness and that of his partner to depict the “perfect American male.”  Bet all those fine ladies of his day would have been disappointed.  Exquisite male specimens created to sell fine menswear and luxury….makes sense.

Leyendecker graced to covers of the Saturday Evening Post well before Rockwell. He was known for his New Year’s Baby editions.

After another inspiring weekend in Newport, Rhode Island, I’m heading face first back to Los Angeles to get my shit in order.

This was a man, dressed as a plant, making pigeon noises at people walking by. I said hello, asked if it was okay to take his picture, and then asked why he was dressed as a plant. He said, “I’m just working through some stuff. Thank you for asking. No ones asked yet.”

I’ve been dealing with stuff the wrong way. 

This warmed my heart. It doesn’t hurt to ask.

Talk to people, they won’t bite….most of the time.  If you’re lucky, they’ll coo at you.
