Roadside Attractions: drive-ins ... neon signs... Only 249 miles to Jackrabbit ... hand-painted signs ... mom-and-pop motels... Only 239 Miles to Jackrabbit... ROUTE 66 roadside kitsch...Road Trip.

I've become a visual historian and anthropologist as I document the remains of earlier road trips. Maybe they appeal to nostalgia, but I prefer to think of these images as a protest against the homogenization of American towns. Stay on the "blue highways" and out of chains. I've been printing transfers on fabric and have used them in quilts, although I do not regard myself a quilter.
