Went on a field trip last night to hear Austin Kleon speak at Texas Lutheran University.

Been using his Steal Like an Artist Journal to record my abz crane project.

Gave him number 943 and he signed my log that keeps track of where I have been placing my cranes… an addition to my abz autograph collection!


He is a fan of Sr. Corita Kent, so I also gave him a Brother Mel book!

Rest in peace, Bro. Mel…

18 October 2013… After a heart wrenching and profound Mass of Christian Burial, Bro. Mel’s casket is rolled up the hill in silence from St. John Vianney High School in Kirkwood, Missouri. There was a stop for a short prayer in front of Marianist Galleries and then on to the cemetery for a graveside ceremony.

Bro. Mel’s wish was granted: “I just want to go from here, across the street.”
