LIVE ART: RICK JAMESON BON VOYAGE EXPERIENCE
There’s a Rick Jameson Experience EVERY month here in Milwaukee. But the one on Saturday, September 3? That one was special. Not only because it was Why B’s (a.k.a., “Rick Jameson”) annual 21st birthday celebration, but also because we had to bid farewell to one of Milwaukee’s absolute best people AND DJs, Kid Cut Up. He decided to move to Los Angeles because he was tired of the reasonable cost of living we have here in the 414.
Why B decided I shouldn’t just paint at this event. I should paint Chuck’s. Three pairs– one for him, one for Kid Cut Up, and one for Rufio, who takes care of not only us on stage, but also the few hundred drunks who inevitably show up to these things. And who am I to say no to the birthday boy?
These were the first three pairs of shoes I ever customized. Here’s hoping they aren’t the last.
