I was just in Portland helping my good friend Jane with a job, and I realized that there are a million things I haven't blogged about yet! A couple of weeks ago, Jane and our friend Anjel curated an amazing show called Roses Are Red at Rise Above Gallery in Oakland, and I helped design the t-shirts to promote it. Specifically, I drew the nettles, and Anjel did the lettering.
I went to see Richard Misrach and Roz Chast at City Arts & Lectures (separately)- in particular, Misrach's work is so consistently amazing, and it was great to hear him speak about it. I went strawberry picking on the coast and had lobster rolls twice in one week. I went to the Monster Drawing Rally at the Verdi Club and went bar hopping for the first time in ages, and had an incredible dinner at Central Kitchen. I went for a walk around the Lafayette Reservoir and had a suburban day with my friend Via. I saw a boat trailer race/demolition derby at the Contra Costa County Fair. And then I flew to Portland- that will be a separate post.
