Play to Your Strengths

Ok, I admit, sometimes I tape cheesy quotes over my drafting table. This is a really good one though, I got it off of a horoscope. It also popped up the day after I got one saying I needed a new love life asap (that one really made me laugh), so take it with a grain of salt.

"Play to your strengths." It's simple, and when you think about it, it's a pretty strong little quote. Well, it gets me going anyway. But I'm going to challenge it and say "play to your weaknesses" too.

Reception @ Gallery Heist

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks for turning out for the Heist show, guys! The crowd was awesome - tons of people everywhere, checking out and discussing art. Unfortunately, I didn't grab very many pics (once again, I was too busy chatting and catching up.. the best part about receptions!), but I did snag this one of the crowd.

Next up, another potential group show on the horizon! Details coming soon. In the mean time though, I'm off to work at the drafting table for my usual 4am run. Getting really close to finishing up this labor of love (three months in the making, can't wait to be done).

So Much is Burning @ Gallery Heist

This is a bit of a last minute development, but on March 6th I'll be part of the Tenderloin-focused group show "So Much is Burning" at Gallery Heist! The show will also include artists such as Akira Beard, Coro (*cough*lovehiswork*cough*), Mike Giant, Hugh Leeman, C3, Brad K. Alder, and a bunch more! (view the extended entry for links to most of the gang) Here's the specs for the show:

"So Much is Burning"

As a footnote, the title of the show, "So Much is Burning" is based on a poetry book title by William Taylor. Taylor currently writes about, and is a resident of, the TL. Pretty sweet!
