My little studio in the “wonder hotel”… I making things in my fog.
Meet Billy, mixed media artist, roamer and proprietor of my fave ephemera shop @monastiraki in #Montréal where i purchased expired passports, vintage hotel stationary, 4-language election leaflets, handmade chapbooks and myriad other oddities – much is now transformed into new stories. PS i need a stationery restock!

My pals in the defunct Provo, Utah band from the 1980s had a song called “The Devil Lives in Moab” and the Canyon Country Zephyr newspaper also had an article about Satan sightings in the area. With these facts in mind, i wrote a story about Satan living in Moab and (as the song dictated) sold hot dogs.
Then, for a spoken word performance of the story, i (and Marty Kendall) painted this mixed media mural on a refrigerator box. Along with a few others, it lived in my VW bus for many years and now it is gone.
