Here’s another Photo Elective self-portrait of Tina Garceau. I think I may have taken a few weak, tentative, overly self-conscious shots of myself, but it appears that my darling bride really jumped into the spirit of the assignment with costumes and lighting. Whether she knew it or not, she really had a knack for shooting herself!

This is the cake I made for our 4th of July barbecue, it was easy to put together, and delicious. The best part about unfussy desserts is that you can spend less time in the kitchen, and more time at the pool! Continue reading
Eric’s Mark I movie theater as it was at 18th and Market in Philadelphia, PA circa 1983. I was a student at The Philadelphia College of Art, and I was snapping frames of 35mm film as reference for a class project.

My friend Penny, who lives on a farm in Alabama has a game cam – apparently, we need to invest in one as well. This fella posed for a few pics, then went running off. Welcome to the concrete jungle, I felt like Elly May with this critter making himself at home in my backyard!
This is another of Tina Garceau’s shots from a photography elective that all illustration majors were required to take at The Philadelphia College of Art.

This salad came about as a way of using up leftover corn – there’s always a few ears lingering in the fridge after a barbecue and here’s a good way to use them up. Continue reading
It’s always the case — I was looking for something else and I uncovered another treasure. This time I found a stash of Tina Garceau’s 35mm photo negatives from the Photo Elective course all illustration majors were required to take at The Philadelphia College of Art.
This is what I call a “cheater cake” – it starts with a box mix that’s doctored up, with lemon pie filling swirled in, and is topped with a cream cheese – whipped cream frosting. It’s light, slightly sweet, with a tang of lemon! Continue reading

A member of the Almanac Dance Circus Theatre performing at the Fleisher Art Memorial ARTspiration event.
This is the paper counter of a Philadelphia art supply store I’ve written about before. Papers and art boards would be ordered as one would order meats and cheeses at a deli counter. A member of the large staff would wrap up the paper or boards and would tally up a handwritten receipt that would be paid for at a separate cashier. As a customer and an employee, I thought the arrangement was annoying, but now that this sort of store has been lost to the sands of time, I have come to appreciate it. Buying paper at one of the art supply super-stores is a drag. Self-service usually means every man for himself, and it’s a mistake to let art students paw through the paper drawers. I came to that realization when I was seeking a sheet of Strathmore bristol that had not been pawed over by an uncaring rabble.
