Wow! My head is still spinning with excitement from all the amazing goins on this past weekend. Wasn't able to be everywhere I would have liked to, but..... you can only do so much.
Toronto was a blast on Friday, got to catch up with great Friends and dance our asses off to one of our fav Techno Artist's, Dave The Drummer. Massive Thanks goes out to Brian B and the entire 2 The Beat crew for putting on such a perfect lil intimate gathering.
Saturday was a cluster of activity and catching up. This is when I unfortunately missed the unveiling of an amazing memorial mural project here in London, organized by the Artfusion collective.
The Stephen Watson tribute is such a beautiful Artistic addition to the downtown scenery. Everyone involved with the mural did an amazing job! Massive Congrats to Ryan Mahy and Katie Wilhelm. They contribute sooooo much to our Local Art scene, on a level far beyond what this often grey city has even been privy to.
Then Sunday was Oddball fest!!!!!!!!! Although I was not able to present the portrait I drew of him some years ago. Having the oppourtunity to watch Dave Chappelle Live was incredible. Haven't laughed that hard for such an extensive period of time since... well, I cant even remember when I have laughed that hard. So many awesome Comedians! Kristen Schaal, Jeff Ross, Dimitri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Flight of the Conchords...... amazeballs!!!!!!!
My only complaints for the event would be how ridiculous the security was about bringing in a camera, but they didnt even bother to check for things to be truly concerned about..... like weapons of sorts. They were even unreasonable about cell phones! (which I kinda understand because its super rude to stand around, yack'n on a phone while people are trying to enjoy the show) The camera thing though, really gets my nerve. However, I can see a lil bit of reasoning there because a lot of people do not know how to take pictures w/o a flash, but anyway! I did manage to sneak in my small digi cam and get a few snaps (extreme difficulty)...... can't hold me back. HA!
All in all, we do hope this tour happens again next year, only with some Canadian venues added. Not a fan of U.S customs in the slightest, but I won't get into my just cause disgruntlement's ;)
So, now......It's studio time!!!! Lots of inspiration for writing new Music and I have a few paintings on the go that I'm really excited about and almost fini. Def building up a nice collection for exhibit soon!!! Thanks for staying tuned Everyone. Much Love.
