2017 is starting off with great projects. I've just completed a mural for the iconic Ritz Cafe in Martha's Vineyard. Know as The Ritz Cafe since 1945 the historic bar has now been transformed under the renowned chef Benjamin DeForest and renamed The Ritz Soulkitchen & Barbecue. The Ritz Soulkitchen & Barbecue now features first rate food, bands, drinks, two murals and several other works of art while retaining the soul of the former "Dive Bar." Given my history on the Vineyard, and specifically Oak Bluffs, I'm very grateful that Ben DeForest reached out to me to contribute to this exciting new venue. The place is already hopping with diners, drinkers, Islanders, visitors, bands, and dancers.
