this is where it all began
This was the first thisway/thatway I created.
It was in celebration of their 40th anniversary. That's mom and dad on their wedding day and still smiling 40 years later.
Carol and Lester
(AKA: Mom and Dad)
after that, custom requests came in
Bob and Sunny
(Father and daughter,

biz kid. biz man.

The povich swing
(Maury starts the swing as a kid, finishes it years later.)
Kevin and Crit
(Brothers photographed in front of their house.)
Suzi and Paul
(Many anniversaries for this amazing couple.)
then came art shows, street fairs and museums
Here's mom hawking my wares at the Coconut Grove Art Fair in Florida.
Streets of SoHo, needless to say.
a portable display
In order to get out on the streets and in the parks, I designed a display that would also hold and transport the thisway/thatways for sale. It needed to be lightweight, inexpensive and durable. The idea was to make everything fold to fit into a milk crate attached to my bicycle. I also wanted the display to spin slowly to draw the eyes.
This couple came up to me at a show in Florida, said they got "some art like this as a gift from a friend." I recognized them from the photos I used to create the piece. I even had them in my samples book.
and more just for fun (and for sale)
check out the glasses.
(And you call yourself a reporter. Fake news!!!)

When they first came out and when they came back out
