Mike LaValee, aka Porkchop, is a multi-disciplinary artist from Asbury Park who exhibits in the US and Europe, but he is perhaps best known around here for his mural (s) in the Casino between AP and Ocean Grove. We have all seen and loved the octopus-flapper woman, but now he has imagined  a new version of another fishy female.  This one is a gorgeous creature—a fantasy woman who lives in a multi-colored world simultaneously under the sea and near the sea.

But today, as we were photographing his new creation, some young women of the warm-blooded variety breezed by, animated, beautiful,  and sure of their femininity.  They don’t seem to notice Porkchop’s 2-D creation, because life doesn’t mirror art, it is better than art.
