The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Rahm Emanuel Map Picture[picture courtesy of facebook.com/edfairburnartist]

This has to be one of the most incredible artists I have ever encountered.  To add mystery to my post, I cannot figure out how I came across him.  The “him” I am referring to is Ed Fairburn.  Ed is an artist from the UK who draws portraits onto actual maps!  The above map/portrait/wow photo is of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.  And, you guessed it, the map is of Chicago!

Hhhhmmm, from what I can tell, my area of town is part of Rahm’s forehead (better than a nostril, perhaps)?

Most impressive, don’t you think?

Chicago’s next election for Mayor is February 24, 2015.  I think Rahm’s got the entire city covered! *grin*

        That’s for sure! *LOL* He’s a really good mayor. I am very impressed with him. He gets a lot done, and this city sure has a um, “colorful” history in politics!!! 😉

    Very interesting art, never seen anything like it, and by a Brit too. As for the mayor and Chicago politics – not something you would want to hear from me. Which is why I stay away from politics in general these days. 😉

      Hi John! Yes, I too have never seen anything like it! *LOL* I’ve never been what one would call a ‘political’ person; I have my own beliefs, etc. but I don’t dwell too much into the specifics, as it were. Nonetheless, I can say without hesitation that from what I have seen so far, this particular mayor is doing a great job. Then again, I’m a Canadian in Chicago; what do I know? *grin* Hugs, Cher xo

    Wow, Cher, what a creative piece of art! Like they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” So very interesting. Wonder how long it took the artist to complete that piece of art. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Love, Iris.

      Hi Iris! Thank you so much! Isn’t it great? Ah yes, that is a true saying, isn’t it? I wonder how long it took him, too! He’s an exceptionally talented fellow, I must say! I took a look at some of his other work, and it is as equally interesting as the Chicago map picture. Thank you, Iris! Love, Cher xo
