  2. Wonderful mosaics! So sad that he can't be an artist-in-residence or something similar so that he can continue to do the mosaics and be able to have a home for him and his dog. So talented! Can't wait to see more...

  4. I have always loved mosaics...I have a mosaic of family photos of all my grandmothers 13 grandchildren hanging in my living room...I love to point it out to the cousins when they visit and we try to remember who is who and where they were when the little insert photo was taken.
    Thanks for sharing

  5. This is amazing......this may sound like a stupid question, but can you just put a mosaic on a public lamp post and not get in trouble for it???
    question from a small town girl!!!

  12. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed looking at Jim's work Daryl, I so enjoyed both of the videos..he is the most amazing character, surely he can't still be homeless..I can't believe how prolific he is, I hope you do get many more shots of his work, how strange that some artists get paid ridiculous amounts of money for incredibly bad art and here is Jim creating these fabulous mosaics and getting zilch. I think he is beyond incredible.
