Party In The Limosine

Hey guys, i thought i would share my 72 hour trip to Los Angeles. I've been told to keep up with my blogging. This is my first post since July, obviously this is a top priority due to becoming famous since then. Moving on, I went out to LA for an opening I'm in and a little drawing event. Just keep reading and all will be explained. This photo show me enjoying my first passion in life, taking stupid photos.

This is my mini-show at TENOVERSIX. It was pretty intense with the live models and all.
But i had a gin gimlet and just tried to act natural. I kinda stuck out at this thing being the only male there that didn't look like a "Twilight" stunt double. It's cool though, God don't make no junk.
Warm-up portrait of Gia. I sent this to Megan and she replied "Great portait!, Looks nothing like Gia though". If that isn't a testament to my portrait skills i don't know what is.

This is the after party that Dexter put together in the storefront at her studio. The idea was that i would draw extremely fast portraits for 3 hours. I really thought i could draw way faster than i actually can. This night put my talents to the test as you will see. Plus, i painted this ghost cat directly after being on a plane for 6 hours, you can practically see me losing my mind in the cats line work. Woof!

Here's a photo of a gorgeous 14 yr old Chocolate Lab.

And here's the drawing!

Here's a photo of a beautiful French Bulldog.

And here's the drawing! ok, enough of that.

Sunday i went with Gia and Nick to the beach in Malibu. I think i bummed Gia out by doing Super Dave Osbourne/Funkhauser/Bob Einstein impressions, (it's easy just say "Larry" like you are taking your last breath before dying) sorry dude, i have problems. The beach turned out to be super rocky. So, the surf was definitely NOT up. Sorry bras!

This beach translates to "The Matador". Hey California, you don't have to give everything a spanish name. That's just lazy.

We made a sand sculpture of our 16th president. I originally called it "Abrasand Lincoln" but, after we started talking about Gore Vidal's revelation that he was a repressed homosexual and putting a flower behind his ear, we landed on "Gaybraham Lincoln". We didn't have time to do a Mary Todd, plus it would have been a pretentious and boring sand sculpture.

As we were leaving, the heavens opened up. It was as if God was saying "Bye, Ya'll"

After Mexican food in Hippy Canyon we went to this party in Silverlake. I didn't know the hosts and I didn't know what the party was for. However, i do know that they had a teepee in the yard. Peace ya'll!
Nick, Nate and I left the party kinda early to go to a Pulp Fiction style diner and have a coffee and made speeches like they do in those amazing movies from the 90's. We covered all the relevant topics, Madonna, Quarter Pounders w Cheese, and the Smurfs, it was riveting, you should've been there . Then I got very excited about the above photo. It's Nate's medicinal dope certificate. I was very stoked on this until i saw that he was born in 1985. Then i felt like an old creep.

Here's the cat i painted during the daytime. You can really see the detail, a true masterpiece.

Gia's table at the studio she shares with everyone I know in LA. Order something from her before she's too popular to be a fan of.
