I just love the giant milk bottle and created this art to celebrate one of the most memorable attractions on Route 66. The cool Milk Bottle landmark in Oklahoma City has sat atop the tiny wedge-shaped building since 1948. This bright and dynamic poster has a amazing retro futuristic look. — Rex
This poster combines enchanting gaelic symbols, interlacing celtic patterns and Irish dancers full of holiday spirit. The concert featured “Fantasia on a Theme by ThomascTallis,” by Ralph Vaughan Williams; “Christmas in the Trenches,” by John McCutcheon; and “What Child Is This,” by William Dix, among other pieces, including Irish holiday favorites.
While in the historic Governor Fifer Courtroom, I was pleased to present the “Frederic Goudy” artwork to Susan Hartzold, curator for the McLean County Museum of History. I hope it will make a great addition to the Museum’s outstanding collection.
The Museum hosted the “Frederic Goudy: The Titan of Type” exhibit in Goudy’s hometown to celebrate the 115th anniversary of the Village Press.
I would like to thank Susan Hartzold, Jeffery Woodard, Bill Kemp and the rest of the Museum’s staff and all the volunteers for their help with the exhibit. — Rex
The Park Ridge Civic Orchestra “Bernstein 100” concert was a centennial celebration of Leonard Bernstein. This electrifying image of Bernstein expresses the passion and the energy he brought to the art of conducting. Works by Aaron Copland and John Williams were also featured in the force of American music concert.
My wife and I just got a bright eyed and bushy tailed sheltie puppy we named “Wrigley,” bred from a small farm near Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was a bit of transition for Wrigley to go from a farm with three horses to a sleepy suburb of Chicago. But the puppy is a bundle joy and has become a beloved neighborhood dog in record time.
Years ago, I did an award winning poster for a sheltie breeder who opened a small local pet care boutique called “Heavenly Pet Center” in Park Ridge. I would later get our first purebred sheltie puppy from the couple and name her “Niko.” Niko was adorable and she loved herding my young children in the back yard.
While walking Niko on a trip to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill Kentucky, she spotted a flock of sheep. The herding instinct kicked in, Niko’s true destiny was herding these sheep, simply amazing. — Rex
