The Art of Rebar
Tying rebar is some of the hardest, dirtiest work, but it is also one of the backbones of ironwork. This drawing is a tribute to the "rodbuster", the unsung heros of the trade. It is also a tribute to Anthony Adcock, an amazing artist from Chicago who also happens to be an ironworker. If you like great art, check out his work. This drawing depicts four members of the Ironworkers Local #1 in Chicago, IL. From left to right are Bill Rhiley, Vladamir Pistalo, Anthony Adcock, and his father Jeffrey Adcock. The job, building the guts for a concrete wall, was at North Avenue and Blackhawk in Chicago, IL.
