I am so excited-My daughter and I placed the numbers on a bridge near our house-that literally hundreds of cars drive under every minute. The numbers are 3897-the number of Iraq dead-the numbers have been untouched since Christmas eve!
I will update this weekly and have sent out press releases to get some publicity. I will also be doing a one to one action wiht my chalk project
More than Numbers /Stop the War is what Im going to call it I think
Tomorrow is my Open House! The place looks beautiful and I can walk into my studio-I feel like weights have been lifted-I will take alot of pictures tomorrow night-We'll be featuring Bernie's ( My mom) Fish house punch which means instant party as its all liquor and tastes like lemonade. Kristin will be making her awesome bread. I am so thrilled ! I love parties!
I hung big clear lights in the back and it looks like an Italian wedding-so cozy-we'll have a fire in the middle though-it will probably be cold. The venerable name tag game will be played too-we've got some really good names!! ( Sanjaya anyone?!)
Next year -you're invited!!

The art show went great-and then I went to the Found Theater's presentation of Stupid War-a benefit for Doctors Without Borders. Two amazing singers, Faith Rivera and Kerry Getz. Please check out their stuff-Ive posted their websites-you must go to the video by Faith called Peace Today -its linked on her site. Inspiring pictures galore! It really makes you want to go out and march or something-I think we all have to try to do something-I have a very special action planned-I'll post pics when its up-shhhh!!

Just got back from a very cool event in downtown LA-which I gather is becoming a really neato artists city. It was in the Ghetto Mansion-where a bunch of Graff, stencil and stickers artists have their studios and gallery space-The place was jumping-all ages really into the sticker scene as well as lettering and stencils.I've put the pics up on my Flickr. There was also screening on site-huge videos projected on the walls-djs and bands. also tacos! The kids were really cool-everyone carried a black book-searching for their favorite artists to sign-the ultimate ill thing. I was blown away by the work and the energy. The guy who runs Praise the lowered has his studio there-he's in my book! I couldnt find him though-go to www.praisethelowered.com and checkout the stuff.
So the walls were plastered with Stickers-the guy who curated this -sticky rick asked for anyone to send him stickers and he just got millions of stickers! the kids were putting up their own stickers-even though it said not to-thats like an open invitation! lots of trading going on too-I want to get the calligraphy community and this bunch together somehow-
There were alot of little kids there tonight too-wiht their books! so how cool would it be to excite that demographic into letters! Im so stoked!!Heres a couple pictures to whet you appetite-You just have to check this work out !!
