New Orleans Irish Channel Kiss Me Cartoon Head-

Settled largely by immigrants from Ireland in the early 19th century, no one is certain where the name ” Irish Channel” originated. Many people of other ethnicities, including German, Italian, and African American, living nearby each other make the New Orleans neighborhood diverse. Yet on St.Patrick’s Day all become Irish again.

I created a cartoon man I call Tuba Head as at first he carried a tuba on his head in fun of the name called tuba players in marching bands. I had him visit New Orleans favorite spots and dressed him up is New Orleans style clothing. Here he has an Irish Hat on for the festivities in the New Orleans Irish Channel. Minus his trademark tuba.
