We met Otto several years ago in Chicago. I suppose we’ve been selling his artwork for over at least 10-12 years now.
He’s a quiet guy, probably lives very modestly. We have never been to his house. He sets up somewhere in Chicago, never the same place. We just meet up with him when we are in town. We call him and he tells us where he is.
You can tell from his creations, that he’s been around a while and remembers the ”OLD” Chicago.
Once in a while we take him some wood to paint on, or some paint or brushes. He occasionally does sketches with pencils, markers, on paper or card stock.
He creates a lot of artwork relating to Chicago...signs, famous buildings, Wrigley field, the Cubs, etc. I guess it’s his concept of what is happening in Chicago.
People seem to appreciate his concept.
He’s kind of a unusual guy….but….we love his artwork.
