Life Letter to the Art Director
Corianton Hale, Art Director,
So, I’m picking up my weekly edition of the stranger and I turn to my girlfriend and ask if that’s a picture of Alki on the cover. She looks at it and says that’s Alki and you. I looked and sure enough there is my bloated self.
That got me wondering why someone would take my picture and why someone else would think it’s Stranger cover worthy.
I’m progressive and a member of a local trade union, local 242. I’m an environmentalist, metaphysically inclined, and treat everyone I meet with respect regardless of race, orientation or anything else. I support local artists and music so, I’m kind of in alignment with The Stranger. Maybe that’s why I’m on the cover.
But, when I really think about it, it’s because I was snoring so loud that day, I was waking myself up and scaring the kids into the water. Thanks for giving myself and my friends a huge laugh.
