Childhood Revisited 3 Show Photos

This year I spent most of my time talking and drinking with people instead of trying to document everything. As a result, the photos from this years show are a bit weak and don’t really capture the awesome that was Childhood Revisited 3.

Thank you to everyone that came and all of the hard working artists. I can’t wait for part 4.

In the Shadow of the Giant.

A few days ago I had a photo shoot with the legendary Giant Mendez (I assume the giant portion of her name has more to do with how she lives then her actual size because I found her to be rather smallish, bite sized even) to get reference images for my Veiw-Master piece I’m doing for the Childhood Revisited show.

Her friends were kind enough to let us use one of the unoccupied spaces in the former tannery they have converted into art studios or “Hidden Fortress of the Arts” as I like to think of it as.

I don’t know how to put this into words how I felt… In this old forgotten building, in a hidden corner of a city that no one really looks to for inspiration, brilliant people are creating, and that just make my little heart smile. It makes me not want to move away from Milwaukee (though I’m still going to).

Giant Mendez was a joy to work with and the shoot went splendidly.

Here is the interview I did with the Little Friends for the latest issue of 4pm magazine. Read, enjoy, and buy some art from them.

These were my girls.

If I ever have a family I want it to be as awesome as this one.

The greatest drink mix of our time.

All of the comics are by Adam Passion. Check them out at

Checking out the results (see below) of our print club session.

Yes, that is a drunk girl cutting her clothing off at the bar.

The finest love pillow one could buy.

There is still a place in the world where Zima is consumed.


Everyone was tired after a day of drinking and flower watching.

I was a Gundam pilot for a day.

There is a strange option that allows you to "westernize" your eyes in some print club machines. I didn't know that I selected that option until we got back the pictures and saw that we had cartoon eyes.
