check out these downtown Tacoma street banners

I had the privilege and pleasure of being part of a street banner project for downtown Tacoma. These were meant to be relevant from Thanksgiving to Chinese New Year, so had to be more about winter than Christmas. We came up with the idea of doing snippets of imagined, overheard conversations that might have occurred on a downtown street in the wintertime.

The words are from my friend Bill Kupinse and me. Bill is an associate professor of English Lit at University of Puget Sound, a really talented poet and a courageous promoter of other poets. The great design is by my dear friend Lance Kagey, who is just good at this stuff. And last and definitely least, the photography is from my much-despised Blackberry phone.
