In response to some inquires:
Who The Hell Are These People, Part 1:
Joe Varisco is old and dear. He's also one of the creators / curators / collaborators behind "Chicago IRL", an event planner, a cook, and always. He is also 1/2 of what we call Canned Culture.
Michelle Sciumbato Keller is an artist, a writer, and a bad influence. She's always far away but our toes are always in the same dirt.
Naomi Nowak is an artist and a comic book creator. I also enjoy her photography and blog-ramblings, and have for several years.
More later on the faces you've already seen, and so many more new ones to show you.
