From all our " Respective, collective selves".
Jeffrey R. Tirante
Good morning! Let's have some coffie, vid some 'toons & take a peek at our
First on our agenda is to mark the the retirement of our CEO & life coach of creative
dogma, SPARKY Begining as a team member April 13th, 07 he has since through his
Yeoman efforts, & patient ways helped set the pace, & vison that has become the
standard for "O.H.Inc." when we opened the following April.
Starting in the "Wheel room" Sparky began moving his way up with such ideas as;
"Well, try it." the classic; "see if that works", his witt will be missed.
Next on the board is the word on our 1st wave of miniatures & figurines available this
spring We've re-worked the original "Palace relief" this, was originally created from a
wax model used in the realization of the "Hero" Model of the Palace Depression on display
in the 1st fr display case in Vineland's City Hall,
(see image gallery for album) the other mini will be "Daynor's ticket booth" the Palace
ticket booth, as it was "Back in the Day", complete with turn-stile, & spires, these will also
be hand-painted, (by the resident artist, of our respective collectives) make each piece
it's own unique vision of the palace, We will be presenting these & other examples of our
skills at the "P.D.R.P"fundraiser this March,( check Palace up-dates page
for details) & the image gallery for "Our Hero" for the latest pre-production image of
these & then-some.
Next up, We have posted in the Gallery, a collection of photography by Jeffrey Tirante
With an "Artist's statement" pending ( won't bore you here!) in the PHOTONIC Gallery,
Briefly, I'M feelin' nostalgic , having said that, We present
"An Existent Light" 20+ years of Philadelphia
through Art & Journalisim, Please note, There are nudes in this collection, so it's your call,
other wise I hope you folk will enjoy show, ( while I work on some kinda frackin' thing
