Covered Bridges

This is the Mull Covered Bridge in Sandusky County south of Fremont. It is one of Ohio's Oldest.

Spain Creek Bridge is the oldest covered bridge you can drive over in Union County. It is small and cute on the way to the next covered bridge.

 The Pottersburg Bridge was moved to the end of the North Lewisburg bike path (which follows an abandon rail line). It doesn't go over a stream, just a grass valley. It also has electric lights.

 This Big Darby Creek Bridge is the first of the new covered bridges in Union County. It has had some time to weather, but still has the new construction features. Large stone steps lead down under the bridge.

The Mill Creek Bridge is Ohio's newest being finished November, 2010. It looks very new, but is on an old narrow township road near the Union Delaware County line. The bridge cost over $1 million. An outdoor summer theater  (Deep Woods Theatre) is held just up the road.

This was a brochure for Club DEVO swag from 1981. Don't remember why it was sent to me. Notice that they don't like credit cards. (click on images to enlarge)

Crazy Mama's started almost 31 years ago

In December, 1979 Crazy Mama's opened as Columbus's defacto New-Wave nite club. It was a second floor bar on the southern edge of the south campus bar area. It was the first to show music videos on multiple monitors at a time before VHS cassettes. It hired DJ's like the fading disco club scene, but was opened to all of rock and roll, past and future. It was a small venue for bands, but members of local new-wave bands became the regular customers. As the above drink menu shows (a cut-out flier by Paul Volker), Crazy Mama's, run by Bruce Nutt and his brother Charlie, was focused on non-mainstream drinks.

Guy Girl screen print

This is a silk screen print (serigraphy) from college. It shows a guy and a girl in different worlds. The guy is thinking and time sensitive. The girl is flirting and showing off her beauty, yet they don't connect. The guy is a drawing of a friend from Australia while the girl is actually a photo that my dad took in the early 1960's on a camera club model shoot. Screen printing is good for changing color from dark to light across a print used here.

Car in the City

This is an oil painting I did in High School which continues to be one of most popular art pieces. I did another (better) version of this my first year of college and sold it. The newer version showed a brick street and more realistic building in the background. I think there's something to be said for an oil painting with a touch of drama that people can relate to. People who do modern art have no reason to cry about not selling their works because art museums show what the old masters did to make popular works that sell.
