 The Foundation claims to have trademark "Jazz Fest", which is a common phrase used for festivals all over the world. I seriously doubt it would hold up in Court. I am not rich enough to file suit. The Foundation has bullied printers, artists, and common folk with notice they will sue for use. Thus ZAZZLE  removed any design with the phrase and some with just the words, Jazz and Fest separately. Thus hundreds of my long term designs are no longer for sale there and at other places. I have revised some designs. And will revise more. I think the Foundation is not considering New Orleans heritage with those actions. But the common folk cannot fight back those overly rich folks.

Fun At Pontchartrain Beach Clown Head Replica Sign

Remeber the clown head on the signs at the beach? Here is a replica.

And some music from the Beach on You Tube





A lot of my art is from my child hood memories so a lot is about Lake Pontchartrain. I did several adaptations of Pontchartrain Beach signs, the most famous was a 1930's tin sign. The old sign itself is still around and some are reproduced. I did an adaptation of it and I get a lot of questions about it. Here it is at Cafe Press- http://www.cafepress.com/figstreetstudio.441044928

MAny styles and sizes are available.

An original is up in the Slidell, LA Cracker Barrel Restaurant off Gause Blvd.

I have more Pontchartrain Beach designs at my Zazzle store http://www.zazzle.com/figstreetstudio/pontchartrain+gifts

New Orleans Water Meter Custom Shoes

New Orleans Water Meter Custom Shoes from Zazzle.com




Interest has gained since Hurricane Katrina in two unofficial symbols of New Orleans, the Fleur De Lis and the New Orleans Water Meter Cover, both are things I have used in my art for many years. The Ford Box Water Meter Cover was designed in 1920 just to be different for water meters used in New Orleans. The designer does not claim ownership of the design and artists for a long time have made it into art, hats, ornaments, and jewelry. There are several other water meter cover designs in New Orleans but the favorite is the Star and Crescent design.

Brass Band At Pirates Alley Print Won An Award

After watching "Treme" on HBO last night I got to tinkering with some brass band images I had done. So I made a dark showdow brass band to use with some of my New Orleans images. It took a while but I added it to several and finally my painting of Pirates Alley. Then it won the days best award at Zazzle.









French Quarter Poster with Cathedral-



My initial idea was to place the showdow brass band in front of some of my paintings but I had to find ones that fit. I also liked how it looked in front of Van Gogh's Night Cafe.


But I did not stop I just kept putting it over things until I won the award and got tired of doing it. If you have a favorite theme let me know I may be able to place the shadow brass band on it. I did one similar several years ago but more cartoonish.
