'Love letters to the Navajo Nation'..


Oh how I wish I'd seen USA artist Jetsonorama at work on this piece during the FORMPublic project earlier this year. Described thus 'Jetsonorama sports a trim, frosty beard and often a jaunty fedora and sunglasses, looking unassailably hip for his 55 years'.. very cool, but it's not his appearance that would have been the draw-card. If you click on his link above (please do) you will learn so much more about the man who trained as a doctor, is now living on the 'rez'  and is described as a 'latter-day medicine man'. Would love to know if my Arizona blog buddies already know about and have seen any of Jetsonorama's work. If he comes back next year I'm so there :) Happy Tuesday, take care..

  7. I have seen some of his work when I was in Flagstaff but, I didn't know it was his until I went to the link you added. What an interesting man with an equally interesting process. I like his attitude and I'm hoping Emily is still doing well.
