Neglect and Tips

for the blog that is!

Here's some tips from my past weeks and suggestions if you are sticking around LA for the long weekend.

Definitely check out the Barbara Kruger exhibit at L+M Arts in Venice (I love this gallery!!)

Have some drinks at the Stark Bar at Lacma! Oh and enrich your life by taking in some Art as well, the new Tim Burton retro to start....

Grab a bite at Son of Gun - I know it's a seafood restaurant but the Chicken Sandwich is BOMB and I rarely eat chicken!!

And most importantly have a great 3day holiday weekend however you chose to spend it!!!

West =____?

A very cool artist creates a very cool book.
Doug asked 1000 people on the street - What is your idea of the West?
If Doug asked you what would your response be?

Recently, I had the fortune of meeting and wrapping with Doug for a bit. Doug is a profilic artist to say the least. One of his more recent projects is a series of video vignettes entitled Patterns + Repetition - you can view his conversation with Jack White here

Poacher or 'Drawing Inspiration x 2?'

Yes it bares a striking resemblance, start to finish to 'Express Yourself,' if I were Madonna I would be asking for $.

Did you happen to catch the resemblance to Kylie Minogue's Album Cover....

Side by Side

Song = doesn't sound to original
