Funky Funk

Sunset Junque Shop in Michigan.  My housemate, David, told me about this bizarre thrift shop/someone's property in South Haven, Michigan.  Here is the website: Sunset Junque Shop.  On it, I found these wondrous and mysterious pictures of the kinds of junk offered in their "shop."

In identifying my fascination with Sunset's acquired junk, I find myself again, close to my thesis film subject, which should be revealed somewhat later on.

The Late Joe Ranft


 Joe: "I had more ideas than the ability to draw them." 

   

  This quote comes from the brand-spanking-new book, Two Guys Named Joe, by John Canemaker.  In reading the book (which is super enjoyable),  I'm starting to feel a kinship to the late Ranft, who was an inspiring storyteller with a sort of a dark, twisted artistic side.  But his words which I connected to most are in the quote above.  Currently, my drawing skills aren't yet strong enough to support my many ideas.  I will keep trying to work at this problem...

  

Sorry about the crappy drawing,

  I didn't have my wacom tablet and pen on me.
