These days he's doing more sculpture - quite successfully. The magazine "Art Limited Magazine" put out a top ten list of the bests shows in each major city around the country and his show made the list for San Francisco (#7).

Thanks Sassy Hardy at the SFZC for scanning these photos and sending them to the cuke archives so we could all share them. - dc
