Artsy Animals

Last weekend at Highwood Antique's Market, we met a very interesting character. Michael Hodesh from A Vintage Poster Bank, out of Cincinnati Ohio.  He was a very friendly and colorful person.  He traveled to Chicago with his huge poodle, Duke, in a vintage trailer. I wanted to share some of his artwork.

This is Michael, who thought it would be funny to pose next to this huge rooster, but he didn't call it a rooster, if you know what I mean.

This is Duke, on the lookout.  At times, he would stick his head through the window and bark at the little dogs across the way.

This is a close up to show you what he make his animals out of.  Old metal pieces off signs and other salvaged things.  Way to recycle Michael!

                           When pigs fly, a lot of things are going to happen!

I love these guys!  It would be a dream come true to actually own a donkey.  This in not what I have in mind, but they are a really cute, maintenance free substitute.
