Pictures from the 2015 Livermore Half Marathon


I loved run­ning the Liv­er­more Half Marathon on March 28, 2015. Out of 2807 fin­ish­ers, I placed 54th over­all. My time was 1:32:18, with a pace of 7:03 min­utes per Mile.

Sam Andrew Memorial on Sunday, March 22, 2015

Sam Andrew March 22, 2015 Memorial event poster by Dennis Loren

Sam Andrew, a founder of Big Brother and the Hold­ing Com­pany passed away on Feb­ru­ary 12 at the age of 73. Along with the Grate­ful Dead, Jef­fer­son Air­plane and Quick­sil­ver Mes­sen­ger Ser­vice, Big Brother, is arguably one of the most famous and suc­cess­ful bands from the 1960s San Fran­cisco music scene. He is sur­vived by his wife, Elise Pili­wale (and daugh­ter Mari Andrew, from a pre­vi­ous mar­riage) who con­tacted Den­nis Loren to design this poster for Sam’s memo­r­ial con­cert on Sun­day March 22, 2015 at the Great Amer­i­can Music Hall.

I spoke with Den­nis who is deeply hon­ored to do this poster in mem­ory of his long­time friend. Elise said that it made her very happy to see the fin­ished design and that Sam would have loved it. The art will be printed by PS Print in Oak­land and avail­able at the memorial.

Before Sam passed, he had mul­ti­ple surg­eries in an attempt to save his life. There is a fund to help his fam­ily with the mount­ing expenses and med­ical bills incurred dur­ing that time. If you would like to help, or learn more, dona­tions are being accepted at  Sam has given us a life­time of cre­ativ­ity and intel­lec­tual mus­ings, many times for free. Now is our chance to help out a brother in need. I know together we can reach this goal. ☮
