Get Off the Phone

What up people?
Check out the new page.

This actually happened to someone we know. Well, not exactly.
Although both the salesperson and the customer were on their phones during the whole transaction, the customer tells us that he checked inside the box before he left the shoe store.
We thought it would be funnier to take some artistic license and add a different ending.
This ever happen to anyone else?

Drawing Steadily

Feels weird to draw on paper again. I'm so used to doing everything on the computer nowadays.
Here's a pic...

Maxwell Street

Sup people?

A couple of weeks ago I was driving near Roosevelt and 94 and decided to stop by Maxwell Street Market's new location, Roosevelt Road and Desplaines Street.

If you've never been to it, it's basically an outdoor flea market, complete with a few food vendors and all the bootleg merch you can handle. The market itself has a rich history steeped in blues music and, more recently, Polish hot dogs by way of Jim's Original.

Over the years the market has been moved around the UIC/"University Village" area a few times (the Market was originally located at the intersection of Maxwell Street and Halsted Avenue). Luckily, the spirit lives on.

I have to admit, I was sad the day the city decided to "rejuvenate" that area and move the vendors a few streets away. If you ever visited back in its heyday you would know what I mean.
Here's a photo of the market in the '50s.
I went there with my parents back in the early '80s so imagine that photo with people wearing tight jeans, L.A. Gears and tons of hairspray.

And here's the new strip...

Feel free to share any stories you may have of Maxwell Street Market, past or present. Peace.
