Drew Young 'InOurWake' at Thinkspace Gallery from DONT LOOK on Vimeo.
The only unfortunate thing to happen that night was that Shawn Hosner, co-owner and wife of Andrew wasn't able to make it out due to a sicky face. Luckily, Lucy and I were invited to their home on a couple occassions and got to meet not only Mr/Mrs Hosner and their gaggle of cats but also their INSANEly comprehensive collection of pop-surrealist, figurative, illustrative, street art collection. David Choe, Andrew Hem, Jeff Ramirez, Dabs Myla, Banksy, elboe-toe, Josh Keyes, Swoon, Crayola you fucking name it, fucking errywhere. We were seriously impressed and humbled. Andrew and Shawn Hosner made LA for us.
Basically the rest of the trip was all no business. A drive to SF, which started off georgeous and all that turned out to be waay longer than anticipated. Lu drove as I was more hungover than ever, as it was my bday before. and apparently I'm allergic to redwine. In SF we hooked up with Luke Lombardo at Gauntlet Gallery (link) as well as some homies from back home.

I gave Adam Caldwell a ring when I was out there and arranged a little studio visit. I can't praise that guy enough. He's really got a solid routine going in his life. He's a figurative teacher for the Arts Academy by day and sinister painter by night. This guy's seriously making me reevaluate myself on a lot of fronts. Adam Caldwell (link)
