Yesterday when I posted that link to the New York Times Lens blog we thought that would be the end of it. We were grateful, even. It's not every day that the New York Times shows an interest in what we are doing in our 'spare' time.
The story, by David Gonzalez is terrific. He encapsulated alot of what Jose was thinking when he worked on this epic (and ongoing) project. The blog also showcased a few of the photographs from Jose's show up at the Brooklyn Public Library. And they look great on the blog. Let's face it, we are so thrilled. We did a happy dance and told our friends to check it out. Yesterday was a really good day.
Then, this morning, WOW. The story we thought was reserved for the Lens blog is also published on the Metro page of the printed New York Times! Whoa! Color photographs, big spread, JEEPERS! And they included a portrait of the artist. It was pouring hard that day when they took the picture. But Angel Franco got the shot! Such a pro, that guy. And loveable!
Anyway, in my quest for endless promotion of the biggest thing to happen at Chez Knithound in a long time, it is my sincerest hope that if you still haven't been to see the show at Brooklyn Public Library, maybe this will persuade you.
