Jeffro’s Fish & Bird

It’s relaxing to chill out and watch Jeff methodically ink some special work. Says Jeffro:

Upcoming Tom Waits Tribute Art Show at Atlantis, the Lost Bar–small group of artists. Tight theme, paying homage to one of my artistic heroes. I’ve done many drafts on the theme of this song over the years, but couldn’t get it right. I think I’m getting it this time–realizing that humpback whales usually breach the surface spinning upside down.

If the ink drawing turns out how I want it to, I will have a limited edition color print made for the show.

Calvin Schenkel Art Show

Calvin Schenkel Art Show

Calvin Schenkel is the man behind the artwork on a lot of Franks Zappa records, plus some iconic Captain Beefheart and Tom Waits ones too. He’s got a show opening on Saturday night the 6th of December here in Gtown in Philly at the iMPeRFeCT Gallery which seems like a cool spot for the neighborhood. Also if you can’t make that he’s doing a follow up artist talk on the next Wednesday where I’m sure you can hear some of his Zappa stories first hand which probably will be amazing. Thanks for the hot tip goes to Mr. Intergalactico.
