Glen Grell the Magician

Pennsylvania State Representative Glen Grell amends successfully amends Senate Bill 1151 to further remove the voting power of the people of Harrisburg. It is quite the conundrum- support Mr. Grell and take away the right to vote- the fundamental right- or simply sit back and watch the city of Harrisburg's current municipal leadership continue to do nothing about Harrisburg's financial debt.

Moleskin Exchange

I haven't posted any of these in a while but the gist of the moleskin exchange is this: 12 people from across the U.S. draw 4.5 images in a moleskin that they have purchased or stolen. They then mail it to the next person in the chain. The person that recieves it finishes the last drawing and then completes another 4.5 drawings. Over the course of a year or so, 12 books are filled up and finally returned to their owner. For you Harrisburgers, that is Mayor Linda Thompson reacting to the press. Sometimes, right after I wake up, I watch WHBG 20 and sketch.

Mayor Linda Thompson In a Boat

During the great flood of 2011 Mayor Linda Thompson toured the areas most effected by the flood in a boat. Par for the course of her tenure she boggled the leadership responsibilities required of a mayor during perilous times.
