here is installment numero uno:
a little backstory:
todd is a regular customer at the cafe. he has been for a long time. he comes in, orders "a small house coffee", sometimes makes small talk with the barista, then makes himself comfortable at a table. he listens to a portable CD player and reads something Bibley. he has a tattoo on his arm that says GOD and he goes outside often to smoke cigarettes. he has subtle-yet-flashy style -- he's big on accessories. this is all we knew about him for a long time.
then the art started appearing. todd would, without a word, hang a piece or two every couple days. sometimes on the bulletin board often used to promote plays, concerts and music lessons. then he started hanging his xeroxed collages in the bathroom. we all went wild over them!
i approached him and told him how much we were all enjoying his secret art and then it really started to pour in.
anyway, that's the background. enjoy. he's great. he's agreed to let me make a series of videos featuring him.
