Bridges: Webster, Cortland & Damen
It was a day full of wandering the bridges on the northside of Chicago, some old–the bascule (drawbridge) bridges of Webster and Cortland which are most representative of the type of bridge this city is known for, afterall Chicago has the largest variety of drawbridge’s in any city in the world, to the more modern […]

The Things We Used To See
If you’ve read my blog or know me personally you know I struggle ever so much with finding a direction for my work. There’s a strong part of my artistic side that truly believes to be successful I need to find a signature style and specific project to focus on, follow through and complete. I […]
