Peaceful Resting Place by Harvey Tillis. Time passed. Years passed. Now I visit when I’m in the neighborhood which isn’t often. Lost memories coming back. Good times and bad. It’s still important to me.
Armitage Building by Harvey Tillis. This building has been a favorite of mine for years. I pass it often on bike rides through the city. Wanted to make it into an image that didn’t quite look like a photograph. Perhaps more like a sketch or etching, old and tinted.
Small Town Pawn Shop by Harvey Tillis. This is the lone building on a block off Main Street on the way out of a small town. Looked ominous. No activities nearby. No cars or sounds. Couldn’t see in. Should I explore? Just say I’m looking around? Maybe next time I pass by.
End Of A Night by Harvey Tillis. Joe Segal opened the Jazz Showcase in the early 1940’s. I’ve been to several of the club’s locations . Like this one best. There’s music every night and a matinee on Sunday. I like it late into the second set on weeknights. That’s when this glow comes over the scene.
Alterations Men & Women by Harvey Tillis. Found a beautiful storefront walking through a new neighborhood. Photoshop filters and adjustments helped me explore and present the details. In the process the image took on a life of its own and revealed how it could look to me. That’s the beauty of creating art.
Doodle 6 In Response to Ornette Coleman’s “Science Fiction” by Harvey Tillis. Created after hearing the music performed by the Bad Plus.
Zebulun Barnow At The Uptown Underground by Harvey Tillis. I first met Zeb when he performed with Big Time, the Tom Waits tribute band, and I quickly became one of his biggest fans. He is endlessly animated, creative and musically talented. Fun to be around too.
