I created this portrait for the Keep Portland Weird show at Portland City Hall in 2008. Kirk was a friend and an inspiration. He passed away in 2012, and, in the summer of 2014, I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural of him on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon. I’ve blogged a lot about the project here.

In 2014, Hess, another artist who inspired me, passed away.
