Some images from the opening night. I always carry a camera at my openings, and then never actually shoot anything, so this night I was obsessed with shooting myself with as many people as I could. I regret putting myself in each photo now. So sorry about the over-exposure of my grill.
Started the day by visiting Terry Richardson
at a nearby studio where he was shooting some top secret fashion stuff.
Deanna and Kevin were enjoying the scene.

Guy Picciotto is the best.
His music and lyrics are at the top of my influence list, and I'm honored to know him.
Craig Stecyk flew all the way from LA to see my show?
Yes, Eggs McManus, another frequent commenter sharing his identity.
