This past summer I was asked to design a rain barrel for Right Brain Studio in Oak Park. Kelly Pelka is a friend, artist and owner of this children’s art studio. Once I designed the barrel a group of her students joined me in painting it. Kelly will auction the rain barrel to fund an art class at her studio for kids who wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to or be able to afford such wonderful art classes and workshops. Thanks Right Brain & kids great job!

So looks like I’ve decided to make this the entry that highlights 2009. This year Monstrochika….
