Meet the Chicago artist David Lee Csicsko, who has the honor of decorating the White House for the Obamas this Christmas. Chicago Sun-Times' Mike Thomas interviewed him.

You might have spotted Csicsko's stained glass and mosaics around town at various churches, the Belmont L station and Loyola University's new Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, among other venues. His award-winning 1983 poster advertising Gilbert and Sullivan's opera "The Mikado" for Lyric Opera is still on display at the Civic Opera House.

Early on, his graphic designs appeared in Chicago magazine (where he illustrated the reviews of celebrated arts critic Claudia Cassidy) and the Chicago Tribune. Marshall Field's and Bloomingdale's also were clients.
