Kenton's Neighborhood in Illinois by Kenton Visser

Denver, CO, US


This is an interpretation of the neighborhood in Illinois where I lived from the ages of eight to eighteen. There were these two subdivisions right next to each other, both of which had the word "lake" in their names. The more upscale subdivision had big, carefully landscaped lake, but ours was a murky borrow-pit pond next to the highway. And yes, I did have that serious look on my face for most of my childhood.
