At least I do.

Before heading in to the show, we couldn’t resist, well I really couldn’t resist dragging Kat with me for a little shopping and pizza….

And theeeen we headed to the show.

As you can obviously tell by my title, Tuff City was holding their first all girl show and their line up was pretty damn good.

5It was great bumping into friends I barely get to see any more.

After arriving, like 10 minutes later Kat had to go pick up Zj, so we hopped in a cab, threw him in the car, and jumped right back in to go back to the show.

Talk about making things happen.6I walked back in with a Spiderman backpack in one shoulder and my godson in hand and got ready to mingle.7I have to admit, with all the artist that were being shown, not much artwork was displayed. Seemed like everyone just put in two pieces and decided to call it a day.8I know Nikki Nameless and Reds gave in about 4 pieces each, which made me a little happier.9I bumped into my friend Ash, who I haven’t seen in forever. It was so great seeing him, and I was so glad he told me he was doing well, and officially has a new apartment which he wants little old me, to do a piece for.

Hmmm, so many ideas.10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22Kat kept laughing at me, because apparently I kept having my face all up in Joey Chang’s piece, titled “Pu$$y”.

But it was so shiny!23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31I got to catch up with the sweetest of the bunch,Erotica.

It’s always nice bumping into her. She’s so inviting and adorable.32 33

Mommy and son love.34Zj is a skeleton…..ah!35Erotica had everyone writing on her “virtual black book” and I ended up doing this for her as quick as I possibly could.031cc1c2496a11e3ae2312183a46235f_8

Red bull was curating a competition where artists participatee in by painting a cooler shaped as a cube. At the end of the night, a winner and two runner ups were chosen. The loft was super grungy yet pretty. Which I admired, I had so many ideas as of how to design it if I was ever to use that space for a wedding.
DSC05289 Hahaha… can you blame me, every since Q proposed ive kept my eyes opened for cute little ideas. Even though I want something tiny, he insists in having something a littke bigger. But lets not get off topic, back to the show. . . DSC05291 We bumped into Philartiste, my awesome, cool ass home skillet. We wandered around looking at all the cool coolers and had a good night. DSC05292 I’ll let you guys enjoy the pics, so you can see some good works from artist like MRS, Indie 184, Cope 2, Phetus, Sofia Maldonado, Ur New York, Jerkface, Zimad, Icy & Sot, David M.

Cause & Effect Art Show

You guys remember me inviting you to the Cause & Effect show. I had it booked in my planner and was excited to go. ( yes, I keep a planner , and it’s not digital )  I had a simple work shift of 4pm – 8pm  and I  was convinced that I would be ready to go and out the door by 7:59pm.

I was right on point .  it ended up being for no reason, because I got so lost in the train, which rarely happens to me. I was convinced I knew which way I had to go, since I had to catch the G train, which I NEVER take!

Anyway, I finally made it to GreenPoint by 9pm…

Perfect timing, show ends at 10pm I can chill out for an hour and enjoy the view.  As soon as I got out the train station I typed in the address in the gps on my phone.

Yes, it was only four blocks, away… but why risk making a wrong turn? Smartphones are overrated I swear. ( and no that doesn’t mean a dumb person owns one , ,even though me getting lost  in the train is not really a good example for you guys to believe me )

Well, on to tonight.  I arrived and I quickly make my way to Missy. I was so proud of her! After catching up for a few minutes I roamed the place to admire all the beautiful works, promising to come back to her.

 

I kept “oohing ” and ” aaaahing” everytime I turned the corner and saw a new piece.

They were so many great artists like KA, Vicky Pages, MTK, JD, UR and many many more.

But either than MRS and Vicky Pages, I have to say Sofia Maldonado absolutely blew me away. I loved her work!

Well, here’s a few more pics to end this post with.

Don’t forget to follow MRS on her Blog :mrsbigstuff.tumblr.com/
