Hey could you help pass my petition around, the man at the san diego port wants to keep san diego artists down. They have cited me twice for vending when as an artist I am protected by the 1st amendment of the constitution. here is the link to the petition. please share and sign. thanks .http://www.change.org/petitions/the-port-of-san-diego-ca-and-the-san-diego-harbor-police-stop-violating-artists-1st-and-14th-amendment-rights#

as of October 16th the port of san diego has made it very clear they want to remove me and my palm leaf art from the harbor.. They have said that my work is not art, but rather handicrafts. they have prohibited handcrafts from the port in their code 8.05 vending and performers amended... They have cited me for doing my work in the harbor and have told me I may deal with further consequences. I am protected by the first amendment as an artist. The port claims that I don't make art. They have done this before a couple of times but I have been very nice  and lety it go on word of mouth they wouldn't harras me any more.. the last time this happend was about a year ago, and I even have a news article from the time before that.

I have been working on many creative projects, for now though other than that little hint I must keep this hush hush till things are underway. The site is moving along nicely, I have added a counter to the home page, and music to greet visitors. :) I also have finnished the acrylics page and the black light page, and have added music and some lyrics to the music page, added poetry to the blogs and poetry page and have done quite a bit of updating to the site so please take a tour of all the pages, as time goes by more and more will be update.

as of 9/25/2010 MMC is being updated till further notice. several new pages have been added as the portfolio page has just too much art. it will soon just have some of my favorite paintings. Some of the new pages will actually be host for the full library of work completed under said medium.  Also added was a music page which I plan to have mmc music up and streaming on as soon as possible. And the videos page, which I will host the most popular youtube videos that MMC has produced.  I am doing all the work myself, and obviously am busy working with the roses and art, so I have very little time to work on this site, but I will put in some effort each day that I can to improve the user-friendliness of it. there is much more to come to this site so please keep checking back often, and check the news page regularly because you never know when there will be an update.

thank you so very much for visiting. many blessings,

William J Dorsett (the san diego rose man)
