I’m going to start this entry with a big thank you. Thank you to everyone who came out last night, and showed support for such a great cause.
Write Off Cancer, is a group exhibition that was curated on the behalf of legendary graffiti queen, Diva. This benefit featured original works for sale, from a collective group of artists. All the proceeds fro this exhibition will be going to help Queen Diva with medical expenses and her battle with cancer.
Kaystar, the beautiful soul that she is asked me if I wanted to be a part of this installation. It was bit last minute for me with the move and all, but there was no way I was going to say no. I happily donated 4 older pieces I had hanging out in my bedroom. Two of the pieces were displayed,while the other two will be auctioned off, at an online auction. That link is coming soon, so please stayed posted.
The love and support was so real. It was such a great turnout.
I’ll update this post with a quick recap video of the night. See you guys soon!

Art shows used to be all I used to do at one point in my life. I love the scene, loved networking, plus there’s something so special about seeing brush strokes up close. I miss it so much, I vowed to start going to some more.
So here I am, and Ashley is the perfect date.
We arrived at Williamsburg and decided no to stay too long, but not before making our rounds looking closely at all the pieces. I have to say, even though everything was great, I was a sucker for the bathroom that was all tagged up.
Getting food after was delicious, Ash and I split mac and cheese, pulled pork and mozzarella sticks. I was little upset they had apple pie milkshake in the menu, but they didn’t have it in the diner.
Until next time.

Chinatown of course.
I headed with Q to meet with Misha, we were headed to Canal Street to see artists paint in a lot and I knew this neighborhood a little too well.
See, my step-father( father to me, I don’t see him any other way ♥ ) had worked in this parking lot for 26 years, so ever since I was little, I would always be running around the lot with my other siblings.
My mother used to work in the Bakery that was close to the lot, so sometimes I would help her wait the tables. I used to like it, I felt like a grown up.
Not to mention there was this cute older italian boy who used to work in the actual kitchen, but of course he used to see me as a little sister type.
Hey, I was a little kid and all I knew was, that he was pretty.
My father is so upset that this parking lot is closed after all these years.
So when I saw the posting that there would be new artwork, I couldn’t resist but to go.
Of course, when I found it was a little too late, but better than never.
Q, Misha and I arrived as soon as all the artists where finished, we said hello and introduced ourselves to the people that were still there.
Who were sweethearts by the way!
They greeted us with beers and let us take our pictures with no hassle.
Though I didn’t get the name of all the artists, I already knew Meres was a part of it, due the light bulbs with faces and Mishka of course, did his thing.
After all the graffiti, we headed to Burger King for some grub and made our way in to a Halloween Shop.
I have no idea what I want to be for Halloween and I’m running out of time!
It’s so hard now a days to find something for female adults that is not too revealing.
I don’t want to be cute, with fairy wings and such, and I don’t want to be sexy with my belly all out.
I took these random pics while walking since they caught my eyes.
I found that box on the floor to be so funny, and a random picture frame just being hung up in the street, ha!
nice graff in the background too.
After that, Misha, Q and I met up with our friend Sasha De La Cruz, who was visiting from Salem, Massachusetts. Misha, her and I went to high school together, and since she was in the city for comic con we had to make it a good night.
We headed to a restaurant in Greenwich where the artist Mekone was displaying some work. Misha was buying one of his pieces, since she’s going to be starting her own collection soon.
Look at this baby, titled “Thirteen”
Isn’t she a beauty?
You can follow Mek on Instagram here After the restaurant…
yes, this night is not over!
We each now own a Mut exclusive print, personally signed by Sasha herself.
She’s super talented and while looking through her work in a pizza shop, all attention was on her.
Customer’s kept stopping telling her how talented she was, which she is!
If you wanted to check out some of her work, follow her on Facebook.
We started to walk, and a lot of walking we did, cracking jokes and Q acting all silly.
We bumped into an ice cream shop.
First thing I noticed was a huge man in a dress, so I definitely wanted to go in!
Big Gay Icream was tiny, packed and had a lot of spunk.
One of the popular ice creams was named Bea Arthur, which I thought was sooo cute.
And if you don’t know who Bea Arthur is, she was one the women from the show
I got caught burping..
It was a great night, we definitely walked a lot, and if I’m not skinny by now, I don’t know what to tell you.
