Sparked By A Selfless Wish

Before he passed in October of 2012, Andrew asked his younger brother Dan to “pay forward” the acts of kindness and generosity shown to their family.



In early 2013, Weish4Ever was created to honor this selfless request, specifically by: easing the financial burden, bringing joy, and ensuring patients and their families know they’re not alone in this fight against cancer.

MK Art

Hey Im Michael K and Im an artist from Chicago.
I have been painting and making art my whole life and have been doing it professionally for over 10 years. In that time I have made paintings for celebrities including Zac Efron, Luol Deng, Michael Phelps, Conor Dwyer, Blackhawks and Cubs players and even World Series Champion Ozzie Gullien! But I am most proud of raising thousands of dollars for several Chicago based charities including The Ronald Mcdonald House, Imerman Angels and Meals on Wheels.

As an artist I draw my inspiration from a variety of sources including Transcendental Meditation, dreams, serendipity, and those weird little moments in every day life. But Music is my biggest well of inspiration that I draw from every day. It is the fuel that keeps me motivated and creative. If you would like to see my latest paintings check out my instagram @mksart and my website MKSART.net

Thanks for reading!
Stay Grateful

bacci pizzeria

My Aunt and Uncle originated the Jumbo Slice in Chicago back in 1996 at a little joint across the street from where my Uncle grew up on Taylor Street, in Chicago’s Little Italy-  the “Old Neighborhood” as many locals call it.

The people of Chicago made it an instant success, and 25 years later we are bringing the same Old Neighborhood tastes, flair, and love to various locations in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. All family-owned and operated, our stores have remained authentic and unaltered,  providing customers with the special attention and treatment only family can give.

It is my family’s honor and pleasure to serve the great people of Chicago, and we look forward to serving you for many more years.

Vantablac sol

A creator of pop art with a hint of nostalgia and a dash of gasoline, Vantablac Sol produces some authentic pieces you will never forget.  

“What I attempt to convey with my Gasoline Pop Art series is regular items you see at a gas station that you don’t see as art. I use items such as bubblegum wrappers, cigarette packaging, the Eneos oil logo to make a viewer feel as if they pulled this piece out of a dumpster. With gas prices at an all time high, this is an example of the frustration/anxiety that people are facing around the world” – Vantablac Sol
