This is George Mink as Rendered by Mink Lover Guido Vision of Mexico City. He and I will be collaborating on a project together sometime in the the future. In the meanwhile, enjoy this portrait of myself he has rendered. Then read about the Real Georges Minks, and realize that I, who goes by George Mink, am actually named Philip Traum.

So, who exactly IS George Mink? I'll tell you a secret. "George Mink" is a psudonymn I plucked from the pages of history. My real name being Philip Traum, I've found the name "George Mink" pop up in history across the United States and Canada countless times, and couldn't resist adopting the name. So much so, it may as well be my legal name. To find out about the REAL Mink's look into the movie "Captive Heart: The James Mink Story," for a real tear-jerker. In reference to the "alien" theme I have running here, look into a Philadelphian who worked for the Yellow Cab Company thru the 1920's. Turns out he was a SMERSH agent(that's a Commie-Russian Spy), who, before being arrested by the Swedes in Mexico in the 1930's, had been accused of murdering a vanished woman in New York by the then local Anarchist political party. There are dozens of George Mink's on Facebook, in the phone book, even a tombstone on 19th and Wolf Streets in South Philadelphia. None are related to me. In fact the only one I AM UNSURE as to whether or not we're related is the Canadian James and George Mink brothers. Note. "James Mink" of the "Captive Heart" movie, is not to be confused with John Dougherty's right hand man. But you can ask him.
