hermit artist.... by cweeks hermit artist.... by cweeks
venice 05 ...

i mean i know that hermits live in caves ... or really gross apartments ...

but ... i got hermit from this guy.

no, i didn't talk to him.

dunno why.

but ... how much shit does this guy have to move every fucking day?

i will say ... he does nice work ... drawings i think ... perhaps paintings ...

but ... i really liked the movement of the pigeons ... although i don't like those rats-with-fucking-wings...

i have a picture of the same guy that was taken just about a month ago. i think he's accumulated even more stuff since you saw him last...

i like the people there who have that booth that has all the way out there vulgar stuff written all over it just for shock value...

there are also some horrible photographers peddling their crap there...

I was struggling whether I liked this or the Hermanito-photo better. I ended up liking this more. Maybe because of the pidgeons. For me they make this shot, it'd be rather empty without. But I also like this guy here, how he's casually sitting there and going on with his business, bouncing up when someone considers buying one of his works. Neat. And sunny.

Holy crap. When i was at venice beach, i saw that guy. he didn't have the shelter, but i recognise him.
he also had a little shorter beard, but it's him.

nice shot :)

You captured the feel of him perfectly. Forlorn but not quite. As though he was waiting for the next millenium to catch up with him.
