My mother-in-law was kind enough to come over and help the Mrs. over the weekend (my wife’s left arm is in a cast thanks to a recent tumble) so I could take a day downtown to cleanse the ol’ soul for a bit.
First stop â€“ the Museum of Contemporary Art for the Massive Change: The Future of Global Design exhibit:
More from the MCA:
Even their staircase is cool!
Lots o’ graphic novels and cartoon art in the gift shop!
Then on to the Mauldin exhibit at the Jean Albano gallery:
No pics allowed inside, but it was fabulous! I LOVE seeing original art like this. The white-out, the pencil marks, the variations on the black washes… It’s cartooning geek heaven!
One last stop at a comic book store. Not much of note there, but this sign made me laugh:
A wonderful brain-soothing day out! Thanks again to my mother-in-law for helping around the house so I could indulge myself for a day!

Looks like a great exhibit. The Mauldin originals alone are worth travelling to Chicago!
Willie and Joe! I know a lot of their buddies.
Speaking as a mother-in-law myself, I'd say yours is extra-special.
Cool! I'm moving to Illinois next year and this is on my list!
Hi guys! Sorry it's been a while…
It was simply wonderful! And you're right Fontessa, my in-laws are great!
