Obviously, I love Mardi Gras. Heck, if nothing else, Mardi Gras parades provide me with one of my major materials - beads.
    It's tough to do Mardi Gras art, however, that doesn't seem cliche, so I've been really selective in the Carnival pieces that I do.
    I love studying the history of Mardi Gras and the icons that go along with it, from Joe Cain in Mobile to the Zulu coconuts from New Orleans.
