Why?

Because. Disco Ball!
So, technically, this is what it would look like if the Moon were a disco ball AND orbited Earth at the same distance as the International Space Station, i.e. roughly 420 kilometers (260 miles) above the surface of the Earth. But that doesn't make it any less incredible looking.

* the public's capacity to distinguish science from pseudoscience."*

Love that...
People who diligently follow their horoscopes may claim that it's all just good fun. But on closer examination, this claim falls flat. Here's why astrology is potentially damaging to our understanding of science, relationships — and even our place in the universe itself.

C'mon, you know you look good...now drop some ink on paper and immortalize it, courtesy of the talented and hi-larious +Nikki Crome.
 
So, if you weren't aware - I'm an starving artist.

I have been on Google+ since beta, which were some of the most fun times meeting you all and growing & forming the friendships some of us still have today. 

There was something I started to do on the plus, I saw that I could finally challenge and practice on honing my skills even further if I could find participants. As we all know, this is what makes G+ unique - the level of engagement and participation in the fun games people create on here. No other social networking site have I seen something like what we have here. Not only is it simply interacting with people, but it brings a confidence to people who may have not realized their value, perhaps.

A few years ago I started #CROMEquickies , they were when I would make a post and offer easy peasey ways to get a portrait done of them....whether they were fist to respond, answered a question correctly, etc..etc..

Well, I think it's time to bring back the #CROMEquickies , not only do I need to make sure I remember to  brush up on my fundamental skills on the daily, I need to also pay my bills. ;o) 

Would you rather me make up some extravagant story? Or be real with you? Besides, it's a win/win! You get a CROME original to keep! :) 

So, I'm offering #CROMEquickies  for purchase of original drawing.

You have a few options:

A) 20min sharpie sketch (original) for $20
(more simplistic, sketchy and unfinished)
B) 1 hour sharpie + pen/ink (original) for $50
(sketchy - but more refined, more depth and character)
C) 2 hour sharpie + pen/ink + colored pencil for $99
(less sketchy, more defined with tone, depth and color; more polished)

All #CROMEquickies  will be created on 8.5" x 11" paper sketchbook paper, signed and finished within the time frame allotted. This only applies to images with one person, one dog or one living creature. Not your entire Family Reunion photo in 20 min with a sharpie for $25. LOL However, that would be quite interesting to see what I came up with in 20 min.....on that small of paper....with a sharpie, even. ;)

Fine, no rules. What you get is what you get. :)

If you need to discuss purchase of other artwork or are interested in a commission for other artwork, paintings, logos, or more extensive portraits - please private message me through here or gmail!

#CROMEquickies   #Sketch  

Send payments via paypal to crome@cromechicago.com, specify within the "message" area within the payment if you want like a different medium used. If so, there will be a $10 add on for being difficult. LOL :D

If you want to see the most interesting effort to brand oneself as an ampersand, then Longman & Eagle is the place for you. A small group of us had dinner here on a Saturday night after an accurate heads up for a 2 hour wait. Quick note, but it may help to call ahead here. For groups of 6 or more, they may be able to hook you up with a reservation, but they're scarce. Still, friendly staff that were polite, efficient, and friendly. Moving on to the bar, we enjoyed the full range of beer (nice variety on tap), 3 buck whiskies (the list is also comprehensive for the price), and a few cocktails to round it out. The cocktail list was lighter than I thought it would be, maybe 6ish choices. But, some were interesting takes on more traditional cocktails without selling out for shock value. While it wasn't my favorite drink that night, there was a gimlet-ish drink with an interesting mix of Tanq, lime, and chartreuse that is worth a look (thanks Molly O for the heads up). Felt more like a summer drink than the arctic Chicago evening we were out in, but a good drink is still a good drink. Someone also tried the Manhattan and the hot toddy with yuzu... that one may become a new cold remedy. I think somewhere in the evening we sat down and ate dinner. I couldn't pass up the pork belly and pumpkin risotto; pretty good, but fair warning that its as heavy as it sounds - twas a bit fatty, even for pork belly. Bring an appetite. For me the buzz was worth it. Its not original, or some crazy new place - it does a few important things really well. High marks for value - great food at a competitive price versus other similar places. The friendly laid-back service sealed the deal - I'll be heading back soon (well, when the snow takes a break). *Note: This is a transferred review from my slowly dying yelp! account.

Bottom line? We'll be back, probably more often than we should. The pre fixe menu was a great mix of variety and portion size, although understandable for some to question the value (a bit pricey, but excellent prepared entrées help). Had a great cocktail called the Hollywood (named after one of the bartenders who works there and goes by this nickname...) * Bulleit Bourbon * Tawny Port * Maple Syrup * Vermouth * Served over ice, stirred, with a brined Michigan cherry. Would have been better with some rye added, but did the trick. Oh, the aforementioned Brittany (sp?), the manager, was working the night we went. Zero complaints - she was helpful answering questions while I waited at the bar and ran a tight ship throughout our meal. Everyone on staff that night was friendly and eager to help (nobody hid in their sections or got territorial at the customers price). *Note: This is a transferred review from my slowly dying yelp! account.

Thanks to my friend Brooke's recommendation, I now have a mechanic who is trustworthy, affordable (seriously), and convenient to my place. They're hiding under the Irving Park L stop - how easy is that to pick-up / drop-off? I have had service done there multiple times in the past two years and all were hundreds cheaper than my dealer (kind of a 'duh' comment), but their value is amazing. They fix only what's needed and provide more cost effective options if you talk to them. On a related note... Dear Howard Orloff - I am not giving you any more of my time and/or moolah. Nal's will run circles around you for every inch of their business. Well, they don't have free coffee. You have them there. Adios - Matt

I had one of the specials tonight, which was a no-brainer: bacon-wrapped monkfish. If you've ever had monkfish, you;d be a happy camper with this one. If not, who cares...its fish f'n wrapped in bacon. Ta-da. Its like showing up to dinner and knowing there's going to be a walk-off homer. Piling on to the other bazillion comments, the rumors are true: the bruschetta and mussels are great starters. We tried the duck confit and the beet bruschetta specifically - both were a big thumbs up. Service was top notch, very friendly, attentive, but not overbearing. If you're looking for a sit-down with friends, want to chat and not worry about the scene around you, Revolution is it. But I'd mind the day you're rolling in. Even on the Tuesday that I showed up, it was full (not packed). Your experience may take a nose dive on a Saturday given the popularity halo that hangs over this place still. Oh, and I had some beer. I'd recommend the Cross of Gold, Eugene, and Let's Have a War if you're down with Belgians (beers, not the people). *Note: This is a transferred review from my slowly dying yelp! account.

Part 1, Shoes: I had some nicked leather shoes, fixed quickly and well. I thought it was a bit pricey at the time, but in the end the work has held up and it's a lot cheaper than replacing shoes. Part 2, Pink Mess: I travel a lot for work, and often to a few countries where the local water/cuisine can leave me feeling less than awesome. So, I always travel with Pepto. Whoop-dee-doo. One trip I forgot to bring it and bought a bottle of the liquid variety at the airport. Oops. Cabin pressure popped the top and it soaked a brand new pair of leather Puma's I had. Another fun fact: liquid Pepto is the Antichrist of Things that Stain. I thought the shoes were a lost cause, but Bee-Hive did about3-4 different things (including a white leather shoe paint) which have all held up for a good couple of years, no wear off. Part 3, Leather Watch Band Repair: I told Marilyn (owner, I think) that they would benefit by advertising a bit more that they handle leather, in all its forms. Its nearly impossible to find a watch place anymore that will mess with leather bands, and these guys fixed two watches for me, one day, $16. Deal. I would use them for anything remotely associated with a shoe or leather, and leave feeling good that it was done right, and also gave my biz to the locals. *Note: This is a transferred review from my slowly dying yelp! account.

My one and only lock go-to. Sounds dumb, right? You shouldn't be seeing these guys more than once every few years, but if want to secure your house, this is the place. I've used them at two different condos for double deadbolt installations (into metal frames no less) and they've been great. Very fast at what they do, can answer nearly every imaginable question, and the pricing is up front and fair - no surprises.
