I’ll be sending out another email from my mailing list before I go to London, so make sure you are signed up if you want pre-sale info, and post-sale info when I get back 😉 Yup, Muertitas will be available to buy after all these shows mellow out.
Speaking of shows, Think Tank on Saturday night was a great time! It was an honor to be part of a show with so many great artists with a breadth of impressive work. Two artists I was especially excited to meet are below in the highlights. Thank you so much to those who were able to come out! (Full album here on FLICKR.)
Let’s hear it for Rens, the guy behind Assembly Line Collective!
My brother came out from far away lands and surprised me to the point where I lost it and people stared (Check out those faces in the background.). THANKS “LITTLE” BRO!

Yup. Dats Allison Torneros, AKA Hueman. She was kind enough to pose for a photo and listen to me tell her how cool her art is. Been following her, as I do most artists, online. Her juxtapositions of tender/sexy women in dreamlike, fractioned palettes are so powerful. Her work also keeps evolving, and it is great to watch. Her street art is just brilliant. Super sweet I got a photo with her.
Artist Adonna Khare has an amazing story. If you don’t know it already, a little synopsis here. She was disarmingly kind. As we chatted she shared a really cool factoid: when her art goes up in a space, she re-works it to fit that space. This means there is no protective sealant during the shows, and she never really finishes and seals a piece until after its travelled a bit and is bought and framed. I really attracted to her work online, which is sad only because my monitor is not as big as her work. Her surreal style makes powerful beasts interact with their environment in such a way that creates tense, energetic compositions. Looking at her pieces is like tripping down a train of feelings. However, I had no idea how impressive these pieces are in person. I was really lucky to meet her and see these pieces.
London, you are next. THIS WEEK! EEEEK!
