FIELD NOTES: This story from the street came from Zap 7 artist Gig Depio. While painting the UNLV mascot--his box is across the street from the campus--a women stopped to watch him paint. Then she asked him for a dollar to get food. Depio was apologetic that he had no change "even for myself," he said to her. She nodded and moved on. Depio saw her walk to the corner and went back to work. A few moments later the woman came back with five dollars negotiated from a driver at the intersection. The she went in the nearby gas station food mart and got herself and Depio a burrito. I can't take this, said the artist. "Who else is going to take care of you?" Asked the woman.
