Big 1-color prints of the above "South Philly times Square" piece will be available for 40 bucks a pop (printed by the best dudes over at Awesome Dudes). Also free tomato pie.

Philly Phoodie Hoagie Art

Commissioned piece for Thad of Philly Phoodie, an awesome local blog that covers all sorts of food but lots and lots of hoagies. I thought I ate a lot of hoagies but this dude definitely rivals or exceeds my hoagie intake, keeping it in check by cycling to most (all?) of his sandwich destinations, hitting all sorts of incredible spots that you've never heard of all over the city.

This painting is mostly based on the awesome looking sandwiches from Jack's Place in the northeast - never been but check out the Philly Phoodie post for info.  HUGE thanks to Gabrielle (Thad's girlfriend and official blog photographer) who commissioned this one for his 30th birthday.

Yellow Boy's Polish Boys

Artwork for Yellow Boy's Polish Boy, a cart in Colombus Ohio that serves the (previously) unique to Cleveland "Polish Boy" - a kielbasa covered in fries and cole slaw served at places like Freddie's Southern Rib House and Hot Sauce Williams, made semi-famous by Cleveland native Michael Symon who has featured it on a bunch of food shows. 

Yellow Boy's cart is run by Marcus Spivey who sets up around Columbus late night on the weekends as well as special events like the Columbus Country Music Festival (pictured above with the Lee Gantt Band.) Check it this article or follow Marcus on twitter for more info.
