Rebecca Dudley finds energy and time to manifest her passions in the most creative ways. Her love of DIY music culture led her to the role as Drummer for Chicago’s punk band Moto in the 90s, her work as an architect led her to build a tiny world for Hank (the plush monkey/bear) and launch two children’s books about his adventures and most recently as a politically engaged citizen, Rebecca is making buttons and temporary tattoos to build awareness for Getting Out The Vote on Nov. 6.
Dudley lives in Evanston, and if you are lucky enough to trick or treat at her house on Halloween, you’ll get some of her timely, fun political schwag!
In today’s interview we talk about developing the thru-line from interest to passion to production. Takeaway: “Do your great work now. Do not wait.”

Her co-creator Andrew Schachman on tattoos helped her launch: nov-6.org where you can purchase temporary tattoos to help raise awareness to get out the vote!

Jamie Lou Thome celebrates an art exhibit this October at the Evanston Public Library branch in Downtown Evanston. In the newly expanded 3rd floor exhibiting space, Jamie has more than 20 works on display, collages created during a three week spurt of creative energy while teaching a summer art class. The work expresses the power and community of women, illustrating just how “much we can do together.” All work is for sale and priced under $100, 20% of all sales will go back to the library for youth programming.
In today’s interview we talk about the benefits of showing art in strange places, giving back to your community and making time to MAKE art!
Jamie’s show is up through the end of October.
