Luke Pelletier's first solo show in Chicago plays off the saying “rest when you’re dead" — it's about relaxing, spending more time with friends, and not chasing after unattainable things. He got a group of his friends to hang out in his studio, while he worked on the pieces. Check out the work in progress on Pelletier's tumblr

Lonely Bones is on view at Peanut Gallery in Chicago, Illinois (1000 N. California Ave.) starting October 14, 2012.
