Let's get down to brass tacks.

Blitzo has a trove of historically valuable pictures that could be both meaningful for the time they represent and personally munificent to him for the money they are worth as prints sold.

I don't get the sensitivity around going full on with profiting on the worth of his body of work.

I've naively done the sorry, tired artistic path and it's always ultimately a loser on it's knees, in reverence of some ill defined "higher goal" about "process" as if product and a good life from good works is something tawdry.

Artist culture SUCKS.

I think it's a good idea for someone local to help Bill print up some iconic pictures and make some money off of his hard work !

I'll buy 1 and pay what it's worth.

Stay tuned as that is already in the making...

His work is being gone over by a very qualified individual (Leigh-Ann, one of the JTree HEROS), being organized, edited, valued, all the above...

It isn't something that can be done overnight...

He has an extensive body of work...

It needs to be done properly...

and now it is!!!...

Leigh-Ann is a fantastic artist, friend and agent of the ENTIRE Blitzo collection. She and the Bloot have diligently been working on the portfolio when we took the little turn to the hospital. But rest assured, she's already riding his ass by dropping off his laptop, setting him up a blog and schedule to get photo stories documented by blog, written or spoken word while he's undergoing treatment. This may cause a bit of a delay but his work will be available to the public and the vision is to include stories and documentation of much of the historical stuff.

She's a gem, we love her and so happy that she's in our lives & Blitzo's too.

Went and saw Billy last night for a few hours. He is recovering reasonably well from the surgery, and will be moved from ICU to a regular room as soon as one becomes available.

Got a torso brace on him now so he can sit up without causing damage...and eat while sitting up instead of laying flat. Much to my disappointment, the torso brace is white plastic, and looks nothing at all like a Rob Halford, Judas Priest circa '87 leather chest harness rig. Oh well.

He appreciates all the good thoughts and notes from you all.

Thank you Will, I was hoping you'd post up last night's visit and knew about the room change. I think he was really only in ICU after surgery because the hospital is lacking beds. Not that what's going on isn't serious but it was a good place to lob him temporarily.

Smooth organs good, bones are a mess plus the various masses which all need to be reduced and zapped. He likes that he's getting such great care and seems that the various teams are really giving him a lot of attention. Leigh-Ann talks about how it's a teaching hospital and we're hopeful that this extra attention will not only get him back on his feet for years to come but provide valuable lessons and knowledge to these newly minted doctors.

Here's to ArrowCare, the Doctors and all the friends who are determined to help the Bloot through this!
