Was glad to spend a passionate week in Atlantic City NJ painting this mural for the @acartsfoundation and @48blocksac. Gà is Vietnamese for chicken, which I didn’t know until I translated the name of the shop whose wall I painted. So many foreign words sail into that incomprehensible abyss... well... here’s a gesture toward making the foreign native. As for the abyss, Atlantic City certainly caters to dreamers, failed and hopeful, a beautiful bay city, and a city known to administer rugged tests of the soul. I was pushed to limits 40ft up, clinging for dear life to the railings of a cherry picker, willing the sway the stop, and the intrusive thoughts of a deathly plummet. Even worse, handling sheets of raw timber to make driving paths—I swore I would never touch raw timber again... ouch! Thanks for the kind words from all who passed by, and to @zev_1 @lo_in_sojo @haydaycoffee... let’s meet at the Tropicana poker tables next time!
