There is a New Orleans blog written by a Facebook "friend" of mine. His name is Lance Vargas and he is an awesome person, very personable and excellent when it comes to describing what it's like to be an artist around Jackson Square.
Here is a sample of his work.
Please take the time to read it, enjoy laughing and - if you are not from here and are visiting New Orleans - be sure to look for Varg. He rocks.
