The Takhoman is a patient man...

he can sit still for art

I had a very special guest stop by Sunday for a life portrait: One Paul Malone otherwise known as John Hathaway of The New Takhoman. Mr. Malone was the sponser for R.R Anderson's Chalk Challenge No. 8, awarding his fedora to victor Lance Kagey for his Pinocchio entry.

Mr. Malone appreciates a good illustration of a fedora; After viewing my poster illustration "Chalk Off No. XI", he decided to come by and sit still for the purposes of artistic immortalization.

The drawing below will be available for sale at this Sunday's Urban Art Festival at my booth, UnstableArt. If anyone would like to purchase it before it hits the streets, email me at unstableart@gmail.com

ha! Nice work Andrea...

Hathaway is an interesting character.. you're now part of the Hathaway portrait club. Check out Tacoma Trashcan's portrait here:

Nice portrait Andrea. Federas seem to be increasingly popular these days.

Here a reference from when Hathaway was in Blackwater:



Fedoras are rare in Tacoma. Rarer still are two people in a row wearing fedoras



This just in:

Laura Hanan has sent me a photo of a Hathaway portrait painting

We should start a fashion movement and bring fedoras back. I'd wear one!

I vote we just bring back classy hats in general. I've never been a fan of my own look in a fedora. But now I've got this derby, which accompanies me everywhere that I'm not wearing a bike helmet instead. Add in RR's beret, Stowe's urbanXchange hat and whatever summer hat option Kevin chooses and we've got ourselves a party.

Next up: convincing Dave L to start sporting a stovepipe.

Here's Andrea sporting the fedora she received from Hathaway for her portrait of him.

my fashion contribution will be the sporting of pinstrip slacks rolled to half calf with canvas shoes and... well I haven't thought that far... oh and definitely derby or fedora hat. We'll see what my Goodwill adventure turns up.

Ooops. Now Andrea's photo disappeared. Great.

That's what happens with flickr if the old photo is replaced I guess. It gets a different url.

At any rate, here's the modified photo a bit lighter to show the brown fedora.

Yes! The Derby! Excellent.

I've got a pair of pinstripe slacks. I'll wear 'em Friday if they still fit...

Tomorrow shall be a bizarre fashion extravaganza, it seems.
