Context: Beer (inter alia)

On our very first visit to Merced, CA in January of this year, while Ann was interviewing and being interviewed, I was engaged in a contextual research project.  That’s when I first stumbled into the 17th Street Public House; and, that’s when I began imagining our own potential immersion, our own possible intertwinement in this new context, to honor the texture of this metaphor. Fast forward, and we’re here in Merced, and I’m already making comparisons between my initial research findings and those related to a similar investigation that I conducted at El Bait Shop in Des Moines, Iowa four years ago.  At any rate, I’m pleased that we’ll be able to take part in the Great Beer Movement that’s happening here and throughout the country.  Kinda’ makes me feel at home.

  1. Paul,

    It was nice meeting and chatting with you on Friday at the Holiday Artisan Fair at the MAC. This is the image I would like to have on canvas. What size(s) do you offer? I’m thinking in the 10” x 14” range. Thanks!


    • Hi Joyce – Thanks for visiting my illustroblog and for stopping at my table yesterday and today. I enjoyed our conversation and I look forward to having some prints made for you. Let me know if you need any help sifting through the posts and finding images that appeal to you.
