Love, Chicago Style



Valentine's weekend was chalk-full of delights and well needed play time. Friday we went out to catch Miss Derringer - Liz McGrath's sweet band of black-teared bandits at the Troubadour. We met up with my sweetest Chi-town beauty, Miss Hannah Aitchison and Pat, we had a ball. Ran into Mr. Gris Grimly as well - a little Friday bonus! Liz is just the cutest little thing whilest doin her thing up there!



Saturday was a marathon of shows, but first things first - stopped by Kim Saigh & Shawn Barber's tattoo shop up in LA to see Hannah bust it out. It blew my face off. The space is exquisite, not to mention all the paintings by Shawn and Kim all over the place!



This happened, I love it...




Dinner at El Cantina where autographs were signed...




Billy Shires...




Corey Helfords...




And Copro Nason...all in one night!!



What a great weekend it was, with fine visitors and plenty good stuff LA has in it's grip. So good to see Hannah and Pat, Liz & Morgan, Gris, meeting Kim & Shawn, seeing Mindy & Rick, Lola, Bruce, Kim Cheuh, Sara Folkman, Buff Monster & Stephanie, Nouar, Nathan Spoor, Chris Ryniak, Mark Murphy and the many walls of inspiring art!

...now back to work...

Holy crap! So jealous you got to see my old friends Shawn & Chris. They are not only super talented artists but very genuine and great people. Glad you had such a fun time.
