It's been a few busy weeks! I recently completed interviews with Diana Lawrence, singer, songwriter, composer, music director, and ZorZor, painter and street artist. Both interviews were really fascinating conversations about their work and views of Chicago. I can't wait to share them and all the other pieces with you all in due course.

68 interviews! I have one more to go and then the interview portion will be done. (Mostly...)
