Perkolator Coffee is located in Portage Park, a northwest side neighborhood of Chicago. I go there regularly to work on photos, to blog for my website, or to work on a graphic novel that I’m co-writing. Sometimes you just need to get out of the house and change the scenery in order to clear your head and let yourself run free and create. Perkolator reminds me of the coffeehouses I went to in the early nineties. I would spend the afternoons reading Beat literature and drinking bottomless cups of coffee until my hands were shaking. Good times.
