thinking about somehting else

I don't usually post about this kind of stuff but...

Everyone who lives or knows someone living in LA or San Diego is buzzing about the recent fires. I've been especially sympathetic to the people affected by this tragedy as almost exactly 2 years ago in the middle of the night I woke to a fire that burnt down my apt and took my kitty. Though I lost a lot I was able to get back on my feet pretty quickly due to the generosity of friends, family and even strangers. Thus, I've been looking for a ways that I can help the people who need it right now. So far the best resource I have found has been via the LA Times on their "How to Help" page but I'm sure as things calm down more resources will pop up. If you know of any organizations please comment with the info.

happy thursday!

Oh and totally unrelated, the leaves changed on the tree in front of the house creating the illusion that autumn in fact exists in LA. Awesome. Haven't had too much time to decorate for Halloween so this really made the season for me.

Do I need a reason again?

La Brea on a Sat. night:

It just appeals to me. That's all.

The work of sweet Denise Simon. I have a print of this little guy and I love it so much. I totally have a thing for hummingbirds in the cheesiest most cliche way. I'll post a picture of my print at some point but in the meantime if you'd like to pick up your own visit Denise's Etsy shop.

Yuki Miyazaki! I love it.

at the end of Friday

I guess it was art insanity weekend in LA. Though I couldn't make most shows I dragged myself through the rain to Silverlake at the end of Friday to catch a couple things.

Fun shows and I could easily drop a lot of cash in either of these fine Silverlake establishments. In fact, I picked up a copy of James Jean's new Process Recess 2 Portfolio at SH which is absolutely beautiful as expected. Can't get over it I tell you.

I'm not at all recovered from work insanity and I think it's going to continue for a while. If things don't get better soon I think I have some decisions to make. Hope it doesn't come to that.

having a weekend

jason Holley

Somehow I managed to get the weekend off and happily made it to the "In Full Cry" show at the New Image Art Gallery on Sat. (above installation by Jason Holley)

I didn't get great pictures of everyone's work there but if you're in the area it's worth checking out.
