Nice Expectations

Book Tribute: Zac Von Jo. Utilizing a print-on-demand website and Adobe Indesign, I was able to insert my friend as the protagonist of Dickens' novel Great Expectations. Zac replaces Pip. This is the second in an ongoing project of replacing protagonsists with "everyday" people. To see a similar project, go to my 1985 project.

Hello, This is really weird. But I work at Finnegan's and a bunch of us have been wondering what ever happened to Zac Von Jo. I haven't seen him for years, and no one I ask seems to have heard anything for a long time. I googled him and this is the only thing that's come up. I hope he's doing well.

Hey Derek,
Zac is alive and well in San Francisco! Still doing weird art, cracking jokes, wearing shoes without socks, etc.

I'll post his website address if I can find it.

Thanks so much Avalon!
I'm so happy to hear that he's doing well! I'd love to see the art he's making. I still have a couple of his old buttons.
Thanks again,
