Panel #2- Gilbert Goodwin of Reno, NV

Hello friends!

My name is Elrod. You might remember me from previous postings such as the ones I posted OVER A MONTH AGO. Holy Cripes! My deepest apologies to all of my collaborators who have continued to work hard and keep creating beautiful pieces of art while I got distracted for a hot minute there.


Today we're going to catch up on long lost panel #2! Last time we saw her, she just left the hands of photographer David Rogers in Provo, Utah, and from there she traveled across the state and over to the biggest little city in the world, Reno! Out there, the panel made good friends with an inspiring word smith and experimental artist by the name of Gilbert Goodwin. Between his kills with rhymes, his tricks on his skateboard, and his talent with a brush, Gilbert is basically a walking piece of art. He was more than excited when he found out about this project and it thrills me to see him creating visual art again. Let's do this thing!
