I didn’t realize I was standing in front of a giant building-sized painting of Rosie until these four ladies came by and started taking selfies with her.
I love how our 2015 version reenactment includes Starbucks in hand.
p.s. – To my Four Wicker Park Rosies – I promised you the original color photo; just shoot me an email at harold-@-vision-creative-media.com (delete all the dashes) and I’ll get that right to you!
Met Naqee on the street in the Wicker Park area of Chicago. Selling crafts underneath the CTA Blue Line platform, I approached him to learn more about what he does. He shared that he not only hand-made everything displayed on the craft table, he is also a artist and that this was only a small portion of his creative work; painting being another passion.
Additionally, he excitedly shared how he also uses technology in his art – particularly how he has a chip in his paintings that the buyer can then scan with their mobile phone to watch a video of him when he was actually creating the artwork.
A big smile and fun to talk with. Look for Naqee under the Blue Line.
12 hours on the bike already today. Heading out on yet another delivery with a great attitude.
