Farewell to a Good Boy

chicoistheman

This is a photo essay about the best boy in the world, Chico Jones.  Originally from Bakersfield, California, he was handsome and rambunctious and strong.

Chico would sometimes work as an artist’s model, for both painting and photography, although he couldn’t sit still for a super long time, unless he was asleep.

Like most people, soon after he moved to Portland he became a DJ, but never attained the fame of DJ Mama.

As time went on, he frequently had trouble not falling into couches.

He was very popular, especially with Janine Brito.

This was his last photograph taken, before he moved on to the next party on September 1st.  He went out as he came in, loving, handsome, and slightly gassy.  I will love my boy forever.  And ever.
