Insomnia Cure: Glue Buttons onto Stuff

27 Jul

Button KingThe Button King Dalton Stevens is charming, gracious, and well, cute. He welcomes all guests with a kitschy song that’s performed quite well. And shows off with pride his collection of items covered with buttons: a hearse, a coffin, a piano, light plates. He has insomnia and thought this was a good way to cure what ails him. He keeps a grandfather clock partially complete so that when the media comes he has a project to demonstrate. Insomnia and sense of accomplishment be damned.

What characters have you met? Were they famous, infamous, or famous only in their own minds?

    I met folk artist Howard Finister many years ago when my folks took us kids up to his house in Summerville. He was quite a character and his Paradise Garden reminds me of some of the Button King’s work,
    Fantastic sildeshow!
