Show at HVW8 in LA

Same night as Deanna's show...
6472img6765.jpg
The show was at HVW8 and organized by Yoshi from Megane Zine. There were lots of artists in the show with me. I contributed drawings I had done for Toy Machine graphics, or Emerica shoes. Mostly drawings of Transisitor Sect or Turtle-Boy.
6472img6728.jpg
Some examples of the other artists in the show...
6472img6792.jpg
So much color! I was probably the crappiest part!
6472img6880.jpg
This is Yoshi, he came over to Deanna's show.
6472img6905.jpg
Megane Zine!
6472img6833.jpg
Zines were there too. Free or for sale? I don't know.

Deanna's group show in LA

I didn't really shoot as much as I should have...
6463p1010007.JPG
The place was raging with people, and hotter than a withered and abused witch's teat. Wait those are usually cold. Some models came too, Devon Aoki was checking Deanna's art out, too bad Deanna hates models.
6463p1010016.JPG
Deanna's stuff is seen behind these lowly art pawns who grovel at the moist nipple of Deanna's greatness.
6463p1010024.JPG
This is Marsea, she owns New Image Art. We go way back.
6463p1010021.JPG
Look who was there, my old bud Ashley Macomber. That is Oliver getting his mug into the mix.
6463p1010020.JPG
So punk with the leather jacket on. "Fuck you vegan dork!" Whoa, its Stew.
6463p1010015.JPG
Braydon showed up and didn't even know that there was a photo of him on the wall...
6463p1010014.JPG

6463p1010013.JPG
Suffer the art.
6463p1010012.JPG
This girl likes photography.
6463p1010011.JPG
She tolerated some Dollin antics.
6463p1010010.JPG
A photo by Dustin Dollin, how much would that be worth on ebay?

Matt Ball was there?

My strange evening...

No love in days, so much to do and never any time.
6461p1000904.JPG
Started off in LA helping Deanna hang her part of a group show at New Image Art.
6461p1000902.JPG

6461p1000903.JPG
Then on the way home got called by RVCA to help paint a banner that will be at this trade show.
6461p1000905.JPG
The model I'm standing on is Erin Wasson. Shot by the indubitable Terry Richardson.
6461p1000907.JPG
"What will I paint on her?"
6461p1000910.JPG
"Hey JGonz, DBriggs, Jacob, Eggs, Vinny and the other commenters, how are you?"
6461p1000914.JPG
Turtle-Boy will walk all over you.
6461p1000915.JPG
Kelsey Brooks was there painting part of the banner as well.
6461p1000916.JPG
Again.
6461p1000922.JPG
George from RVCA is an accomplished artist and started on the other side.
6461p1000943.JPG
George was killing it, making my stupid sect painting look dumb!
6461p1000923.JPG
Fixing shit. We had to "cover the boobs" because its a "family" trade show.
6461p1000924.JPG
My plumbers' crack was covered, sorry ladies.

New Years Eve 2009 and into 2010

Did anyone see Dick Clark? That made me sad. But then I kissed into the new year...
6434p1000802.JPG
What is this you may ask? It's (fake) Butter...
6434p1000803.JPG
...And a whole jar of brown rice syrup. Chrissy was making Caramel.
6434p1000804.JPG
On top of that whole jar of brown rice syrup, is a fistfull of brown sugar too. Check out that whisking action.
6434p1000806.JPG
Pizza made from scratch, and salad. These are the salad days.
6434p1000814.JPG
This was the new years moment. See Frog Rock (catalina island) in the background?
6434p1000815.JPG
Then out to shoot off fireworks Billy Marks left in a tour van over 5 years ago. There was so much that I still have some. Yes that is one tiny rocket lifting off back there.
6434p1000817.JPG
Roman candle fight!
6434p1000823.JPG
Deanna was scared to light them!

Oh yeah, art.

The caramel was done, and so were the brownies.
6434p1000832.JPG
Rich and chewy. I called a corner piece.
