San Francisco Treats  
I recently took my first trip out to San Francisco for an opening at Gallery 1988. Here are a few pics I took, there are a few more over on flickr. You can see the artwork from the show over here, hopefully one of you has an 8' wall just begging for a giant monster.


paintings in situ
Thursday I did some set up, mostly rebuilding my stretchers and stretching the canvas.

Friday morning after some canvas tweaking it was dumpling time at House of Nanking with Ferocious J.

street art
Spent the rest of Friday walking around town, saw some nice street art and galleries in the Mission.
Ended up stopping by Super 7 to say hello to Brian.

Then it was show time!

imaginary friends show
My friend Kelly stopped in to say a surprise hello.

Hopefully everyone had a good time, the festivities were somewhat dampened by the large spontaneous Prop 8 protest happening a few blocks away. For some reason people seem to think that standing up for equal human rights is more important than an art show, the nerve!

I hope to make it back to San Francisco some time for more than 48 hours, it seemed like a lovely city.

And now, go eat more corn syrup.

Andrew: are you going to be selling any prints of the painting(s) shown? I'd love to pick one up.
