Greetings from Grand Rapids
I’ve been in Grand Rapids, Michigan for a week now and have made real progress getting my wearable sculptures made and meeting lots of people. Last Sunday I went to a big church picnic. The night before that there was a little street art fair in downtown where I met a number of local artists. I also became friends with Dan and Lisa, the owners of The Cottage Inn. It is an old pub that I think is awesome. Lisa was so sweet she introduced me to the entire place after the band took a break. I was running around twisting lots of balloon hats.
This week was mostly up early and working late. Romy Owens and Luke Homitsky who are here helping me here look as exhausted as me.
Tomorrow is Friday and we will be playing some of the sculptures downtown at a pre-registration event that will be going on all day in a little park a few blocks from my venue, The UICA. I have recruited some attractive young people who are going to come out and get in the sculptures for us.
I expect to have some great pics of all of that on here by Saturday.
Thanks to those of you who bought a print. Those of you still waiting, keep in mind, after October 10 the price goes to $600.
Check out the flicky movies Romy is making each day.
