You just keep banging out the same old stuff for the same old people....yawwwwn. Some of us want to open up and share the art experience with everyone. You are just an angry angry man, just stick to what you know old timer.

I'm in a hateful mood right now because I am sick and I can't go to the parteeeeee.......
BAH! I gave my virus to all my co-workers this week 'cause I hate them and I don't care if they get sick. BUT I cannot go and give it to my fine TC friends, 'cause I loves ya too much! So I will look at the twitterings of Mr. C. and live vicariously whilst I eat my chicken soup and take whatever drugs I can get my hands on.
THAT's what twitter is good for!

This was the part of town that used to be a setting for TV crime dramas, what with the old warehouses and prostitutes and chop shops. Not any more! Now it is highly gentrified and trendy. I had a great time! These guys are EXPERT artists! Not only were these fine tiki central artists there, but every studio had something going on. It truly is an artist colony. Nice to walk around drinking wine and listening to acid jazz bands and look at art!

if you wanted to "share"
then why did you sit on the stairs all night and doodle in your sketchbook?
that;s sharing?
and just for the record....
Angry artists clean up after themselves
and remove their nails from the wall
before packing up and leaving...
If angry artists can respect an exhibition space
then maybe you should too!
Maybe you need to lose some weight
in the hyper-inflated ego area..

thanks Dave's Not home
and Phillip for being so gracious and sharing your spce with us...
thanks to Squid,Toe,kim, and even clysdalle
for combining forces and makin this night shine!

I saw soooooooo many friends and fellow artists
that were around when i first started exhibiting in 89-90..
Glad to see a handful of them still are creating!

Great night!
met a surfing dog,heard some acid jazz,and really enjoyed the energy andcreativity
and talent around.....
Felt great to do something other than a Tiki event...
thanks all!

Kinny, Squiddles, Toesy, DNH, Kim, & Clysdalle - you guys rawk! Thanks for havin us and all them jokes too! Too funny!


I have a few pics from last night but won't be able to post them till tomorrow (no net in my new apt yet! Ugh! Thank goodness fer phone technology lol)

Wow! What a great art event! All the TCers had awesome work on display, and the rest of the studios had lots of interesting things to see too!

We missed you Kiki, hope you're feelin' better soon... but thanks for not coming and getting us all sick!

I ate SO much free cheese last night! (it was high-class free cheese, on toothpicks and everything!)

Darn! I missed the toothpick cheese and Charles Shaw vino!!! I'm more bummed that I missed seeing you guys and your work. Only one night? I was hoping it would be up for a little while so I could go see everything. Poop!

The gent who let us use his space..Phillip
is an architect.
He purchased the loft and lives upstairs with his wife and 2 adorable daschunds
Dave's Not home and him organized this
but only for a night as a gallery needs to be opened at different times,etc...
So it was the typical set-up/takedown situation
and seeing as we've all done our shares of events
this was a cakewalk..
except for BigToe..he's always late
seriously..
but he sets up fast,so it balances out....

Those tacos on that Kogi foodcoach must've been reeeeeeal good
because there was a block long line from 6-ish til 11
the whole time!!!!

The funnest part was seeing how different our show was from
the other art,stylistically,thematically...
Just different...kind of a higher art sense
whereas we were the lowbrow kids!
It was really interesting hearing feedback from people
or just watching their reactions to a 5 foot piece
confronting them with the last judgement...
Good Times....
Phillip , the owner of the space,really had a good time
and was open to doing this again...
I would suggest ALL DIfferent work next time
switch it out

i wouldn't call a Mandala, a Battle of Fish (based on a figure from a Han Dynasty Tomb,abstract rowing orongos,a fantastic depiction of a rapture,a last judgement,and a contemporary social commentary on Surveillance "same old stuff" I would venture to call an octopus/a cannibal Moai/and some Posada knockoffs more tired and over-used than those themes....
honestly!

Don't mask your anger by diversion,Clysdalle...

I think the other artists and non tiki people totally dug it. I heard a lot of great feedback and comments too. There were a couple other lowbrow galleries in some of the other units as well, but in my opinion, nothing beats the originality of what you guys are doing. Squid's shrunken head mug was drawing a lot of curiosity, and my wife was totally into the "last judgement" and is now obsessed with how many trumpets are actually in it!

Clysdalle definitely got the kick ass shots!

I was too distracted in all the other studios to really realize "HEY TAKE A PICTURE!"

Kin, ya gotta help me out...what was your friend's name again?!
anyway, he painted this portrait of Kinny and was featuring it over at his show
he had some really kick-ass pieces! - it was so crowded...how did I forget to snap pics of the polka dotted guys?!



I dunno...I was ordered to snap this pic....just....just cuz!


I see you!


trouble-makers...


It's so freakin epic!
I could stare at it all night...


Dave the wino!
