Ed Holmes kicked things off Friday afternoon during the pouring rain with a dedication to Tom at Land’s End on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, the place where Tom left this world. That was followed by an art car caravan (including some art cars that Tom had built) through San Francisco and then over to American Steel Studios in West Oakland where there was a beautiful memorial set up for Tom. It was a wonderful celebration for an amazing man.
When we arrived at the memorial, we walked past the row of parked art cars and came upon the trio of Doggie Diner dog heads. The only place it was raining inside of the cavernous American Steel space was right on top the first dog head, making it appear almost as if he was crying, mourning the loss of our friend Tom.
