Rain And Thunder
Whoa, this weekend was chalk-full, and as promised, here are the photos I took of The Fighter preview that I did the boxing gloves for - and then some!
It started off with a preview of the movie (The Fighter with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale). It was really good. It was great to see a movie in a theatre where the crowd was really into it AND respectful - such a nice environment.
The afterparty was at And & Still just down the street where they had the artist's boxing gloves for charity. It was a good crowd and a good time! Aaaannnnd, when you get a chance, soon, go see Travis Louie's "The Ghost Of Delilah and Other Stories" show at Gallery 1988!
There's always much needed silliness when we get together with other artists...it's what keeps up comin back for more!!
We had a quick stop at Kat Von D's Wonderland art and gift shop Sunday where we got to peek in at Kevin Llewellyn's art work (!amazing!) and the super fun window displays outside. (...i'm a nerd for that stuff...)
It's good to have a guided tour with the woman that kicked out the jams there and made it all possible, Chantal Menard. She's such a flippin doll it's not even funny...
In all the rain and wind, we found ourselves at Miss Mindy and Rick O'Brien's Christmas Dr. Sketchy's. We bundled up with hot chocolate and candy canes..
Some excitement broke out from the fire pit - but Mindy was on the scene with her do rag and fire hose - she caught the flames before they reached the people - and was cute as a button with each little peep!
They had the lovely models wrapped in ribbons suspended from the trees just above the drawing crowd...you could only find this in the imaginings of Bob Self & the O'Brien's Dr. Sketchy's.
If you're no stranger to my blog, you know I love Christmas Decorations and the such, and at Mindy's you can't get far from the red & the white, which makes me love her more and more.
I'm LOVING all the Christmas festivities around the blogs as of late, and I have much to post of my own in the coming weeks. I hope all is calm - all is bright out there with all you warm, lovely people.
