He looks he’s saying ‘this is bullshit’ in every photo.



The visitor will find in the French Quarter a strange and fascinating jumble of antique shops, flop houses, tearooms, wealthy homes, bars, art studios, night clubs, grocery stores, beautifully furnished apartments, and dilapidated flats. And he will meet débutantes, artists, gamblers, drunks, streetwalkers, icemen, sailors, bank presidents, and beggars. The Vieux Carré is definitely the place in New Orleans where people go to live their own lives.

New Orleans City Guide (WPA, 1938)

The sun rises as a man wearing a crooked pirate hat staggers and stumbles down Bourbon, still drunk from the night before. The street-cleaning trucks are like big woolly mammoths criss-crossing the narrow streets, spraying water, wiping the slimy, smelly muck off the pavement. Fresh fruit and seafood is brought in via hand trucks and shoulders. Many take a break and a puff leaning against brightly colored walls before starting a day at work.

The French Quarter of New Orleans has not slept, but begins its daily cycle once again. Throughout the day, the streets will see dog walkers, boozy babes, musicians, revelers, conventioneers, gutter punks, cops, maids, and dandies. There is constant movement by foot, car, bike, and mule. Beignets are powdered and oysters are shucked. Exclamations are shouted and secret corners are found. The haunting notes of the calliope soar in from the water’s edge.

At first glance, one might assume that The Quarter is frozen at a point in history for the enjoyment of tourists. It only takes a couple of blocks to experience otherwise. There is a daily rhythm, but the magical part of The Quarter is that it has a part for you to play. It requires you add to the life and times of this place and to keep it moving forward.

I work in The Quarter digitizing historic documents and photos. Before, after, and during these hours I roam the streets finding the special people who add to the impressive timeline. I am inspired by August Sander and Atget, Katy Grannan, Joan Didion, and more. I am fueled by the power of this place and plenty of iced cafés au lait.

Everyone must have had similar thoughts at least once. Broccoli and parsley might sometimes look like a forest, or the tree leaves floating on the surface of the water might sometimes look like little boats. Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts.

I don’t have time do a proper write up about Mondo Con as I am still playing catch up (as usual) but I wanted to quickly go over what I’ll have and where I will be. 

I’ll be in the Kirby Hall at table T-2. In between the wonderful Scott C., and Jay Shaw. I’ll have all of these prints above. Plus SUPER Dicks of the 20th Century, and SUPER Dicks of Mondo Con. I’ll have APs of almost the entire Marvel show I did in April, as well as a new shirt, and some fun other things. 

Also, just as a heads up, I will be in a panel about toys today from 11-12, and will be unavailable. 

I’m probably forgetting something major, but yeah, I got all kinds of stuff! Swing by, say hello, have an amazing time. It’s gonna be great!
