Chicago Bungalow House Tour

There were lots of things in Chicago I am more than glad to leave behind.... but I still occasionally miss the house I lived in for 5 out of 10 years. Located in the Portage Park neighborhood in Chicago (a heavily populated Polish neighborhood!) it was quiet, tree-lined and had rows of bungalow houses. Bonus: I had an international market just blocks away that I shopped for all my groceries. I was super-spoiled.
Ok, so I stole this photo from the internet. This is what my neighborhood looked like though! My neighborhood was even named one of the top 12 neighborhoods to live in Chicago last year.

Manic Pop Video by Carlos Martinez

About a month before I left Chicago, I had cinematographer/director/filmmaker Carlos Martinez ask to create a video on me and my work with Manic Pop - super exciting!

He's been a busy man the past month and a half or so (and I've been busy with adjusting to my own new life in Michigan) but the video is up for viewing!

It was a bit odd to talk about myself and my work for nearly a half hour to do the narration part over the video but it was so nice to have Carlos over in my studio one day and see how everything unfolds at Manic Pop. Fun fact: my video is the only video so far done in color. How could you not use color for me, right?!


Check out Carlos' other videos in his artist series. He does great work!
