    Nice piece Brian- I use bird imagery a lot in my work- I also love maps. Jill Berry has a book coming out sometime Called Personal Geographies (I think) It looks like something you may like.

    I just finished reading the article in the Dayton Daily News and had to immediately come find your blog. Nice work. I am going to look at the idea of the rolodex. I like that idea.

    Love your collage and was happy to read the great story about you!!! Great going!!!

    Previously you mentioned “street art”, picking up so-called garbage off the street to go into your artwork. Well, I have a “thing” about picking up trash no matter how neat it looks. It reminded me of an artist, and I don’t know the name, who sort of made their own. They would put magazines, newspapers, etc. in a barrel or something and leave it outside so it would get rained on, the sun would fade some parts of it, etc. I never got around to doing it, but it sounds like a good idea. I have some old milk cartons that have holes in it so when it rains here, which isn’t often, the water can drain out so I shouldn’t have problems with mold.
