Turret Syndrome

I have started another blog to serve as a portfolio for graphic work at 
http://riordan-design.blogspot.com
I'm excited to say there will be a display of my work in the Popular Library of the Harold Washington Chicago Public Library from November 17, 2017 to January 19, 2018,  featuring many of my castle like pieces. 
The name of this site is in reference to the artist magazine of which I produced 10 issues from 1976 to 1991, when the world wide web came along to do the lifting. Here is another site I maintain (or not)
